PRINTING BOOKS WITH MORE THAN 1200 PAGES

An on-demand book printing company called Snowfall Press offers the option of thin ("light weight") paper and can therewith print books with up to 1278 pages.

 

Lulu should acquire the same printing equipment Snowfall Press uses so they can offer the same option. It would give them a huge advantage over their competition (CreateSpace).

Hello Calciumboy

Thank you for your comment. The type of paper you refer to is commonly used in text books to reduce the weight and thickness of books.

 

At this time, only one of our printers has the capability of printing on this type of paper. Since this would be considered a specialty paper, it would also not qualify for retail distribution.
