Trade Pricing

We pay royalties on print on demand books monthly and because the royalty is calculated by using the trade cost of printing your book you will receive a bigger royalty from us than under almost any other publishing arrangement.
Personal Service
With The Choir Press you’ll always be dealing with a named contact on a one to one personal basis who will be knowledgeable about your book. You can phone and visit us.  We've helped to publish 1000s of books for publishers of all kinds from sole traders to international publishing groups covering almost every genre.

Print-on-demand books

Before the growth of print-on-demand books (POD), publication usually meant accepting the long print run costs of traditional printing. First came up-front print costs, then the printed books had to be stored and, short of ordering another print run, there was no way to adjust production to demand. Fortunately, the adoption of POD makes publishing possible in ways that were unimaginable a few years ago.

  • Print-on-demand books avoid the costs of long initial print runs.
  • Avoid tying up working capital in costly inventory.
  • Call off the number of copies required – when you want them.
  • You only pay for printing after the book is ordered, printed and sold.
  • Avoid the waste of unsold stock.
  • Most suitable for mono books and very short books with colour.
  • Print on demand can be seamlessly integrated with online ordering.

How does creating print-on-demand books work?

Print on demand (also sometimes referred to as ‘publish on demand’) is a process where new copies of your book are printed when orders are received from retailers, or when you specifically request a run of between 10 and 200 copies.

Before widespread adoption of digital printing, print-on-demand services weren’t possible because it wasn’t economical to print single copies of a book. As we prove daily, the economic viability of book printing on demand has changed this. It’s never been easier or more cost-effective to have copies of your book printed to order. What’s more, print on demand companies like ours can remove much of the risk from publishing your book.

Choosing between print-on-demand companies

As with selecting any partner, choosing between print-on-demand businesses means balancing a combination of experience, technical factors and interpersonal ‘chemistry’. At The Choir Press, we combine the latest print-on-demand book publishing technology with years of publishing experience and acclaimed personal service that you’ll experience from our first conversation.
