BelieversBookServices specializes in printing services for most book projects. Our difference is that we give authors the best possible prices, direct from the printing companies we partner with. Low print prices set authors up for the best retail prices, and optimum sales.
Printing for independent authors
For most authors, the print world is filled with terminology that is new and hard to understand. To compound the issue, some terms are used to define different things. Here are some common terms:
- Print-on-Demand (POD): a book is printed as needed for any purpose
- Print-to-Order (PTO): a book is printed to fill a specific order, whether for retail sales, or direct-to-consumer fulfillment
- Short run printing (digital printing): a few books up to a few hundred books are printed to supply a small inventory or orders
- Long run printing (offset printing): larger print runts (generally longer than 750 units) which fill a larger inventory or orders
Important! BelieversBookServices provides authors with some of the best print prices in the industry so that you can sell your books with competitive retail prices, rather than using high print costs and complicated formulas to determine what your readers will pay.
Print-on-Demand, Print-to-Order, and Short Run Printing
Print-on-Demand is a print and distribution solution that enables authors to have their books printed and shipped as individual orders are made.
How It Works
Some authors simply want a small inventory of books. Other authors want to tie a website to the printing press, and create a book to fill an order - and drop ship the book directly to the customer. BelieversBookServices has a sister company called BookPrintOnDemand.com that accomplishes this solution for hundreds of authors.
So simple, you can write it on the back of a napkin.
From “4x6" to 6x9"; the price is $1.25/cover + $0.01/page. Example: a 200 page book is $3.25. Our minimum cost per unit is $2.25.
From larger than “6x9" to “8.5x11”; the price is $1.25/cover + $.02/page. Example: a 200 page book is $5.25. Our minimum cost per unit is $2.25.
Books with 6x9 trim or smaller print with 8 page signatures. Larger than 6x9 trims print in 4 page signatures and blank pages will round out these signatures and be charged for accordingly.

Long run printing
Printing has evolved from traditional printing (offset presses) for all book printing, to shorter and short runs (digital presses), to a true print-on-demand printing. Long run print runs today, generally happen with orders of 750 books or more.
