POD for spiral bound (Recommendations?)
« on: March 19, 2018, 01:20:07 AM »
Hey everyone,
I'm looking for a POD service which is able to produce books with spiral bound. I want to sell on Amazon and because I don't want to care about the shipping, returns, payments etc. , I'm looking for a service similar to CreateSpace or Ingram.

Do you have any recommendations for such a service? I was also thinking in the direction of platforms like redbubble, cexpress etc.

Wish you a wonderful day,
Lucas

Unfortunately, you may have trouble getting the distribution you want for this. The last time I checked, Lulu produces comb-bound books, but they won't distribute them anywhere, only on their own website. There are other printers that can handle spiral binding (like Print Ninja http://www.printninja.com/printing-products/spiral-binding), but they don't provide direct distribution to Amazon. Print Ninja does offer warehousing and fulfillment, but you'd still have to be hands-on with that.

To my knowledge you'll have to handle the seller deal yourself. Either through Lulu or some other POD service. Sucks, but there doesn't seem to be a big call for anyone to do it as part of their business. I've been thinking about doing some craft books, and wanted them spiral bound, but had pretty much settled on having to deal with it myself. :(
