Nook Press launches printing service

Barnes & Noble’s self-publishing arm Nook Press has launched a printing service.

Authors and aspiring writers can now print their own customized books which the retailer says are “affordable” and “high quality” in black and white or colour, hardback or paperback, with choices in varying paper quality, trim sizes and cover treatments.   

Doug Carlson, executive vice president of digital content and chief marketing officer at NOOK Media, said:  “Nook Press is proud to add print books to its portfolio of services. As the world of self-publishing grows, Nook Press will continue to expand its easy-to-use content creation services in support of all authors, writers and creators.”

The service delivers the finished book in “about a week”, the company said, and offers authors “templates, tips, and other resources to guide users at every step of their printing project.”

Nook Press launched in the UK in March this year. The Bookseller revealed in September that it would start previewing self-published titles and has partnered with US bookseller Barnes & Noble to exclusively include Nook Press titles in the section through to April 2015.
