Trade Paperback

narcissist

The publishing industry is rapidly changing, and the current trend is obviously the handheld electronic devices such as the Kindle and Nook. However, forty percent of avid readers still prefer the printed book over digital.

When we use the term “paperback”, do not be mislead into believing that Empire Publishing produces those typically mass-marketed pocket books found in grocery stores. Paperback is the most widely used term for a non-hardcover, but our Trade paperback books are high quality “soft cover” books suitable for the top shelf in any bookstore. Trade paperback books are printed on high-quality paper and will rival any produced by traditional publishing corporations. Every new author dreams of a hardcover version but in reality, they are extremely costly and dramatically reduce your profit margin. Our goal is to help you make money as a writer and not sell you an overpriced service.

Your book’s interior will be produced in full-color or black and white, depending upon the option you have selected. All book covers are printed in full-color on cover stock and finished with a protective laminate coating.

Books are printed to meet demand, so you benefit from inventory freedom.

Covers are printed on 10pt stock in full-color and laminated for durability. Our books are library-quality. Professional trade paperback binding ensures a book to be proud of. Most Indie-Publishers will require you to purchase up to 500 books upon publication. By using our printers, you are not required to purchase a single book. Print on Demand is the future of publishing. There is no costly inventory and no out of pocket expense for the author. It’s simple, a buyer orders your book and it is delivered to his or her doorstep usually within 4 days. As the author, you can purchase your book at a substantially lower cost and resell your book to make an even higher profit. The power of on-demand printing and distribution-on-demand can make your book available for unlimited wholesale availability via the most sales channels in the industry. Your book will be printed on-demand, after a customer orders, using the latest digital printing technology available. Your book’s interior will be produced in full-color or black and white, depending upon the option you have selected. All book covers are printed in full color on cover stock and finished with a protective laminate-coating in your choice of either matte or glossy finish.
