Pros and Cons of Book Printing Online

One of the reasons self-publishing online is so much more affordable is that book printing costs aren’t really a factor up front. In the past, a self-published author would have to already have enough money to buy copies of his book from a book printing company. These companies usually have a minimum order, so the author would have to order hundreds, or even thousands, of copies of his book. And if he didn’t manage to sell those books, that was money lost. Now, thanks to print on demand, a book is only printed when it’s already been bought. This means a writer doesn’t have to invest as much money upfront in order to start selling his book. And while selling only a handful of copies might be disappointing, it won’t be a great monetary loss.
