Ingram POD Print Price Change 2021

Published: 20 Sep 2021  - updated: 9 Dec 2021

Ingram Books have scheduled a change to their Print On Demand (POD) book printing prices. New prices will come into effect during October. The increase is approximately 3% for the UK and AU markets, and 6% for US markets. They have explained that is the direct result of an increase in paper and manufacturing costs within the print industry as a whole. We hope SilverWood authors will recognise that this situation is not of our making, and that we are not able to control third party pricing decisions.

Books are priced by the amount of paper they use - therefore, the changes affect POD books on an individual basis according to page count, the size of the book, the paper type, and whether the interior is black & white, standard colour, or premium colour. The increase is more significant for premium colour books and hardbacks compared to other types.

How will this affect you?
When you place book orders for delivery, you will see that your book printing price has changed. Your royalties will also change slightly depending on your print price and the trade discount being offered to wholesalers and retailers. SilverWood may make small changes to the trade discounts on offer, and possibly to the RRP, to help ensure the royalty you receive remains similar to that which you have been used to.

Do you need to do anything?
No, there is nothing you need to do. SilverWood will manage any changes. You will continue to receive the same type of royalty paperwork.
