1 How can you support IPG members?
We are a UK company supporting independent publishers with a system to manage and supply content in an easy and effective way. We provide a range of services including affordable HD colour printing, and work to publishers’ individual print and finishing specifications. Our dedicated account managers can hold your hand throughout the whole printing journey, ensuring you get exactly what you need.
Our motto is to think global and print local. Our global partners can enable your book to be printed local to the destination, whether through print on demand, auto stock replenishment (ASR) or first prints. We can also help publishers to promote their books via a wide range of sales channels, including Amazon and our own Great British Book Shop
. We partner with Baker & Taylor in the US to provide exposure to the huge global book buying market.
2 What is your favourite thing about being part of IPG Conferences?
The chance to meet and be part of a network of publishers. It allows us to keep up with the industry and meet new people.
3 Can you share one top tip for independent publishers to improve their business?
Become a lean publisher. Always look inwards, and understand the activities that limit your profitability and don’t add value.
