Lightning Source offers a print on demand model for every publisher, every title and every situation. Because these are complete vertical integration models, a single communication drives the production process all the way to order fulfillment. Provide us with the quantity and the destination and we’ll handle all the necessary details.


For publishers who like to keep a small inventory on hand, Lightning Source offers volume discounts on larger orders of digitally printed titles. To take advantage of this opportunity, you must purchase order line quantities of 50 and have them delivered to a single location.


To complete our spectrum of print and distribution services, we offer offset printing when the volume required makes this the most cost-effective approach. A minimum order of 1500 (paperback) or 750 (hardback) copies is typical for this model. As the lifecycle of the title progresses, Lightning Source can seamlessly switch from digital printing to offset printing – ensuring availability and low costs.
