The number one issue that Self-Published Authors have always had with publishing books through standard Print-On-Demand (POD) publishers, such as Amazon, Ingram and others, is the lack of choice for bindings and covers.
It is reminiscent of the quote from Henry Ford when he said, “You could buy (his) Model T in any color you want, so long as it was black.”
Since journals, diaries, planners, puzzle books, activity books and coloring books are books that people write inside of, the perfect-bound cover is less than an ideal binding choice.
Perfect-bound books are fine if you are publishing a novel or a textbook.
But if someone is going to be writing inside of a book, they will frequently push down hard on the binding to force the book to stay open to the page where they are writing…
Which breaks down the strength of the binding, and over time, it will weaken the binding to the point where the book may start falling apart and pages start falling out of the book.
The last thing a customer wants to have happen is for the pages to fall out of his or her diary or planner.
Is The Perfect Printing Solution
You don’t have to be a rocket-scientist to realize that Spiral-Bound or Coil-Bound books are the perfect solution for those who publish journals, diaries, planners, cookbooks, puzzle books, activity books, coloring books and even children’s books.
By switching to Spiral-Bound books, consumers will receive the awesome benefit of having a lay-flat book binding, which will never lose its strength or resilience.
The problem however is that neither Createspace or Amazon offer a Spiral-Bound book through their printing processes.
An additional problem is the “Google Effect“…
I don’t know if you have noticed, but there is this thing called “Search Engine Optimization (SEO)“, which is a process that websites use to make sure their websites rank well inside of Google’s search results.
SEO itself is not a bad thing, but the websites that have been really successful with it tend to charge a lot more for their services than the people who don’t rank well within the Google search results.
No matter what keywords you type into Google to find Print-On-Demand companies, the first 20-30 search results will be companies that tend to charge obscene prices and many of them have minimum purchase requirements.
To put this in perspective, I once found a company that did Leather Books, and they charged $30 per book if you purchased a minimum of 100 copies, but they charged $140 per book if you only purchased one book at a time!
As the old saying goes, “I might have been born at night, but it wasn’t last night.”
The “Google Effect,” as I call it, is that most companies who rank well in Google and offer Print-On-Demand services are the robber-barons of the modern age.
Without The Robber-Baron Prices
This information is not easy to come by, to be honest…
My first attempt at finding a reliable Print-On-Demand printer, who was capable of printing Spiral-Bound books at decent wholesale prices failed…
My second attempt also failed…
On my third attempt, I spent two whole days searching, then just as I was about to give up, I found GOLD…
Here are some Sample Wholesale Prices for Spiral-Bound Books using the POD Printer we recommend:
- 6.5 x 9 inches, has a soft cover in full color, and 120 black and white interior pages costs me $3.65 before shipping
- 8.5 x 11 inches, with 70 black and white interior pages and only costs me $4.04 before shipping
Given that we sell our journals for an average of $8 to $14, plus shipping costs, we are able to make some healthy profits with our Spiral-Bound Journals.
This Print-On-Demand Printer will be able to satisfy your printing needs for both Spiral-Bound and Perfect-Bound books, printing both versions at very attractive wholesale prices.
You only need to design your books, upload them to the Wholesale POD Printer we tell you about, then sell your books from any website that allows you to sell books or products.

A1: Yes, it will. The Print-On-Demand Printer is located within the United States.
Orders are always printed and shipped within three (3) business days or less.
They can ship your orders anywhere in the world, but you will want to double-check shipping costs if you plan on shipping books outside the United States.

A2: There are NO Set Up Fees involved with these printing companies.
Simply upload your book manuscript through their control panel, set up your cover, paper size and binding, then save your book.
They do recommend that you order one copy of the book for yourself, to make sure that your book is printing correctly, BEFORE you start selling to customers. (All Print-On-Demand Printers make this recommendation, as do we.)
