Learning About Print-on-Demand
There are a lot of options available today for printing my own personal or family history book, so I decided to conduct my own research study. The print-on-demand subject and industry is growing rapidly these days, especially on the Internet. I ran across some articles and websites that were helpful one way or another. One thing I learned was that there is a difference between print-on-demand, publish-on-demand, and vanity press.
