What publishers say about us
Dietrich zu Klampen | Klampen Verlag
“With the addition of print-on-demand to the life cycle of our titles, we create uninterrupted availability and visibility of our backlist – without having to make any financial investments upfront. The direct connection to sales channels via BoD also reduces our workload, enabling us to concentrate fully on our core business.”
Myriam Nothacker | wbg (Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft, Darmstadt)
“As the largest book club in the German-speaking area, the wbg has an extraordinarily long backlist. With BoD’s print-on-demand and drop shipment services we achieve great levels of flexibility, which relieves us of the reprint planning process and the small-scale individual shipment of orders to our 85,000 members. This way, we achieve complete coverage of all markets with a sensible use of resources and no publishing risk.”
Cost-effective book production
Prin-on-Demand opens up potential for cost savings

With print-on-demand you can effectively avoid costs that come with storage and logistics, book returns and administration. A holistic view of all processes for each individual book results in decisive cost advantages compared to print runs with direct sales distribution.
