British independent comics distributor Smallzone – also the team behind Scar Comics – has just announced a UK-based Print on Demand service for all UK comic publishers.
“Now – finally – there is a true POD option for UK publishers,” enthuses Smallzone’s Shane Chebsey, “which means no more expensive shipping from the US and no more having to spend a fortune in big runs of comics just to get a reasonable price per copy… It also means that small publishers will no long be restricted to black and white interior art. Colour printing is now affordable on lower runs.”
Smallzone can also intergrate the retail service with the printing service so publishers don’t have to worry about finding storage space for their print run.
