What is Print on Demand (POD)?

edited November 2017 in Lulu Basics

Print on demand (POD) is a method of producing books or other media using a digital file. The books or other media are produced only at the time of purchase.

Traditional publishers print thousands of copies at once. Although large print runs costs less per copy, the initial cost is much higher. Printing thousands of books requires the facilities to store them and negatively impacts the environment through waste, storage, and transportation.
