I think you can get a copy printed for your own use from... Lulu?

Btw, if you do get lucky enough to get a publishing contract, it will likely be a year or two before the book is published. Not months.

My book #3 Silver Victory is at a proof stage. Several of my beta readers prefer hard copies to PDFs, so I order proof copies for them.

As long as it's in draft status, you can change the ISBN (I just did it).

So, I don't think you've locked yourself into anything by setting it up as a draft in KDP and then printing proof copies.

On the other hand, B&N or Lulu may work for you as well.
Proof copies come with a band across the cover that says Proof Copy on it. If you want a proper book without the proof copy stamp you have to order the book as a real book, and once a copy is sold the listing is there on Amazon forever. I'm not sure if ordering an author copy would get around that, but I wouldn't want to try it and then find out it doesn't.
