There are a wide variety of online stores that will easily allow you to market and sell your physical book to tens of millions of people. 

There’s just one catch: you need to have books printed prior to being able to sell them. 

Let AlphaGraphics help you print multiple copies of your book. We can even have them shipped to various online retailers so you won’t have to deal with the boxing and shipping aspect of it. 

Need only 1 or 2 copies of your first book?  We can do that too.  We recommend printing one copy of your first book so that you can verify the look and feel of the book.  Then we will make the necessary changes and print the remaining quantities of your awesome book.

Self-publishing is not only for the aspiring author, many community and state college professors are cashing in on the self-publishing craze.  If you’re the professor of your course, you generally get to choose the required educational materials. Why not author your own book, then have the book store sell it? You can increase your monthly income this way. 

One of the more popular binding options for books written by college professors is spiral/coil. In this binding process, a coil is bound through one side of the book. It is very economical and rugged and will last for many years if properly taken care of.
