Publish Globally in Print, Print on Demand (POD) and eBook formats with the DPC!
Finally, there's a global publisher that can do it all, physical print and eBooks, meeting your audience where they live, read and view your work.
Printed books, using the latest technology. Online books for download from our site, your site or from our key partners globally (think Apple, Amazon, Google, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Gardners, Wheelers, etc). Audio books for download in whole or by track via iTunes or a myriad of dedicated audio sites.
The number of options for getting your title out there can be dizzying. You need a publisher who knows the business.
Digital publishing and distribution is a reality. The age of the single channel book is over, too. Books need to assume many forms – and extended ones – as eBooks, audio, or even as multimedia. Increasingly, these options are feasible for individual authors – with expert advice.
Enter the Digital Publishing Centre (DPC). This is not about the Death of the Book, any more than DVDs were about the Death of the Movie Theatre. This is about giving content creators, readers and viewers CHOICE and ACCESS. Creators in Australia need no longer see themselves at the end of a dirt road, distant from the marketplace. With digital publication, your work can be available in cyberspace even before it appears in physical print.
At IP, this is nothing new. We've been providing these services to our authors for years. At a time when other publishers are still thinking about going digital, IP has more than 250 titles available via print on demand (POD) and on the Kindle Store. With the DPC we can now offer these services to authors and organisations who want to invest in their work to realise higher royalty revenue.
What Publishing Solutions Does the DPC Offer?
Put simply, the DPC starts with a digital master that can easily be adapted to whatever format is required for other forms of publication.
Print books typically are output as press-ready pdf (Acrobat) files. A similar master can be sent to POD companies to allow for copies to be printed on demand anywhere in the world, including on the Ingram Espresso machine that can produce a high quality printed book is less than five minutes.
We then create versions that will work on the key readers, tablets and smart phones and distribute them to Amazon, Apple, Baker & Taylor, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Google, Overdrive, Gardners and ReadHowYouWant, a company that specialises in producing large print versions for visually impaired and blind readers.
With the DPC, you no longer have to search for service providers for each step in the process and then coordinate their efforts to avoid duplication and added expenses. We can do it all for you.
The sky's the limit. Businesses and government agencies can benefit by making their publications available online or via download 24/7. Schools and higher education institutions can make texts, handbooks and guides accessible on site or at home.
Once published, a work never need go out of print. Digitally published and archived, its contents can be resized, and made searchable, divisible. And portable. Your library can be at the beach. Your workplace at a café. Saving trees. Reducing your carbon footprint. Helping make the publishing industry truly green.
There's never been a better time to decide to go digital. When you do, think DPC.
