Need Clarity on Not-for -Distribution Print Books

Hi, all: Totally new to Lulu, and I can't seem to nail this down. My first project will not be for general distribution. That said, I can't seem lo locate guidance on such things as what to put on the barcode section on the rear cover, and the copyright page (publisher and ISBN). Would I just eliminate those items?

Thanks in advance


  • If you make your own cover, you can choose to add a barcode, but you don't need to. If you use our cover creator, a barcode will be added automatically, but the number present will just be an internal reference id for the printer.

    As for a copyright page, I would encourage adding one regardless. The only scenario I would imagine not adding one is if the book were a gift and the interior design/format was important to the overall aesthetic of the book.
