How can self-publishing help me attract the attention of mainstream publishers?2023-05-06T06:11:01+10:00


Self-publishing is a great way to get noticed by mainstream publishers. By self-publishing, you can create an impressive portfolio of your work and demonstrate that there is an audience for your writing. This will provide evidence to potential publishers that there is a market for the book you are pitching which makes it easier for them to make a decision about working with you. Additionally, self-publishing allows you to gain valuable experience in marketing and distribution which can give you an advantage when negotiating with larger publishing houses. Furthermore, if your self-published book does well then this may be enough to attract the attention of major publishers who want authors who have already proven their ability to reach readers.

What are the benefits of self-publishing?2023-05-06T06:06:23+10:00

Self-publishing your book can provide a variety of benefits to authors, including increased control over the publication process, higher royalties, direct access to readers, and more. With Intertype’s support services and Books Online Australia bookstore, you will have the resources needed to take advantage of these benefits.

Intertype believes in giving authors complete control over the publishing process. Self-publishing enables you to make all creative decisions regarding how your book looks and reads without having to compromise with an outside publisher. Additionally, when self-publishing through Intertype and Books Online Australia bookstore, you can enjoy higher royalty rates than traditional publishers offer — often up to 70% for paperback books or 40% for ebooks sold. You’ll also

What file formats do you accept for printing?2023-02-04T15:27:06+11:00

The file format of your design is a critical aspect that can impact the final print quality. Different printing companies may have different preferences and requirements for file formats, but there are a few common formats that are widely accepted in the industry.

The most commonly used file format for commercial printing is Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). PDFs are versatile and can be opened on any device with a PDF reader. They also preserve the integrity of your design and ensure that your colours and fonts are accurate.

It’s important to note that file formats such as Microsoft Word (.doc) or Powerpoint (.ppt) are not recommended for commercial printing as they are not designed for high-quality printing and can result in low-resolution images and poor colour accuracy.

It’s always best to check with Intertype Publishing and Printing for specific file format requirements before submitting your commencing to create your artwork. By using the right file format, you can ensure that your final printed product meets your expectations and looks professional.

Traditional Vs Self-Publishing2023-02-04T15:27:31+11:00

Traditional publishing and self-publishing are two distinct methods of getting your book into the hands of readers. While both options have their advantages and disadvantages, understanding the key differences can help you determine the best path for your publishing journey.

  1. Control: In traditional publishing, authors surrender a significant amount of control over the editorial, design, and marketing aspects of their book to the publishing house. On the other hand, self-publishing offers authors complete control over every aspect of their book, from the content to the cover design.
  2. Time to publication: Traditional publishing can be a slow process, with months or even years between the time an author submits their work and the book is finally published. Self-publishing, on the other hand, allows authors to move quickly from writing to publication, often in a matter of weeks.
  3. Royalties and profits: Traditional publishing houses usually offer authors a smaller percentage of the profits from their book sales in exchange for their support in editing, design, and marketing. Self-publishing authors, on the other hand, typically earn a higher percentage of the profits, but they also bear the costs of editing, design, and marketing.

Ultimately, the choice between traditional publishing and self-publishing will depend on the individual author’s goals, resources, and preferences. Some authors may find the support and exposure offered by traditional publishers to be invaluable, while others may prefer the control and higher profits of self-publishing. By considering the key differences, authors can make an informed decision that is right for them.

Intertype Publishing and Printing isn’t a traditional publisher. We provide services to authors so that then can professionally self-publish their books, with global reach and without costing the Earth.

Benefits of Print On Demand2023-02-04T15:27:06+11:00

Print on demand (POD) is a printing technology that allows for the printing of individual copies of a book or product as they are ordered. This has several benefits for both the customer and the printing company. Firstly, POD reduces the risk of over-printing and unsold inventory, saving time, money, and storage space. Secondly, it allows for quick and efficient production and delivery of products, meeting the demands of customers in real time. Thirdly, POD also provides greater flexibility in terms of customization and product offerings, enabling printing companies to offer a wider range of products. Lastly, POD also reduces the environmental impact of printing by reducing waste and overproduction. Overall, POD offers a cost-effective and eco-friendly solution for printing that meets the needs of customers in a timely and efficient manner.

Intertype Publishing and Printing are Print On Demand specialists with over 18 years of experience.

Why Do I Need and ISBN?2023-02-04T15:27:31+11:00

An ISBN (International Standard Book Number) is a unique identifier assigned to books and other print publications. The ISBN is a 10- or 13-digit number that serves as a unique identifier for each title and edition, allowing it to be easily tracked and managed within the book industry. It is used by booksellers, libraries, publishers, and other organizations to accurately identify and track books and manage their inventory. An ISBN is essential for any book that is intended for distribution and sale and is required by many traditional publishers as well as online bookstores. Obtaining an ISBN ensures that your book is easily searchable and distinguishable from other books, and helps increase its visibility and discoverability to potential readers.

At Intertype Publishing and Printing, we take great care in registering an ISBN for our authors as it needs to be done in the correct sequence and with appropriate keywords. Get this wrong and Google search will have trouble finding and displaying your book.

Is CMYK important?2023-02-04T15:27:06+11:00

Artwork files for commercial printing should be set up using the CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Key/Black) colour mode for several reasons. Firstly, CMYK is the industry standard for printing and is supported by most printers. Secondly, CMYK allows for accurate colour representation on printed materials, ensuring that the colours in your design match what you see on your screen. Thirdly, CMYK is a subtractive colour model, meaning it absorbs and subtracts light to produce colour, making it more suitable for printing as it allows for more control over the final printed colours. In contrast, the RGB (Red, Green, Blue) colour mode is an additive colour model that produces colour by adding light and is better suited for electronic displays such as computer monitors and televisions. Using CMYK ensures that your artwork files are optimized for printing and that the final printed product meets your expectations.

Intertype Publishing and Printing uses state-of-the-art digital printing technology. The platforms are all capable of printing RGB colour values however colour accuracy and repeatability will be seriously compromised. Stick with CMYK for the best results.

Why Is Print Quantity Important?2023-02-04T15:27:06+11:00

The quantity of prints ordered directly affects the per-unit price of printing. This is because printing companies often offer bulk discounts to incentivize larger print runs. The larger the print run, the lower the per unit price because the fixed costs of preparing the press, setting up the job, and materials are spread out over a larger number of units. This results in a lower cost per unit, making it more economical for the customer to order larger quantities. Additionally, printing companies can produce a larger quantity of prints more efficiently, reducing the overall production time and costs. So, if you are looking for a more cost-effective solution for your printing needs, consider ordering in bulk.

Intertype Publishing and Printing’s digital print platform makes small quantities more affordable than traditional offset printing platforms. This lends itself to utilising Print On DEmand (POD)

What Is Pre-Flight Checking?2023-02-04T15:27:06+11:00

At Intertype Publishing and Printing we believe that pre-flight checking of printing artwork files is a crucial step in the printing process that helps ensure that the final printed product meets the desired quality and specifications. Pre-flight checking verifies that the artwork files meet the technical requirements of the printing press and are ready for production. It checks for issues such as resolution, colour mode, font and image embedding, bleed, and file format compatibility. By catching these issues before printing, pre-flight checking reduces the risk of costly mistakes and reprints, saves time and resources, and ensures a high-quality final product. Therefore, pre-flight checking is an essential part of the printing process that should never be skipped or overlooked to ensure the best possible outcome for your printing project.
