The benefits of printing on-demand with BookVAULT

Whether you are a mainstream or independent publisher, BookVAULT helps you to achieve true print-on-demand.

Say ‘no’ to stock

Holding stock is a risk – and it costs money. With BookVAULT you print copies only when you need them – it truly is ‘print-on-demand’.

Save on warehousing

Without stock to hold you can save significant money through reduced or even eliminated warehousing.

Easily manage your catalogue

Once you upload a title to BookVAULT it stays in the portal – meaning you can go back and re-order with ease.

Track your order in real-time

Transparency is critical for us. With BookVAULT you can track your order from upload to delivery.

Rapid turnaround on orders

If your order is for less than 25 copies and a standard finish, it can be completed within 48 hours of receipt. Larger orders are typically 2 to 4 working days.
