How much it costs to print and ship a book depends on a number of factors, including where the book is being printed and where it is being shipped to. We recommend using our Print & Shipping Calculator to determine the print and shipping cost for orders you place through your IngramSpark account, also known as "Publisher Direct Orders". However, the print & shipping calculator does not include all the fees you are charged for the order you place. (You are not charged these fees for orders we receive from our Global Distribution Network of retailers.)
Print cost is calculated by the number of pages in a book and the type of cover. You can view our Pricing & Services Guide (rate sheet) HERE.
Page count is the total number of pages in the book, including blank pages. Page count does not include the cover, inside cover, or end sheets.
Using the US as an example:
ORDER HANDLING FEES charged for Publisher direct orders printed in the US
1-50 Units $1.99 per order
51+ Units $4.99 per order
If the order is shipping to another country, there may be (GST) goods and service tax or (VAT) value-added tax fees incurred.
Placing an order for your book through your IngramSpark account is the best way to determine exactly what it will cost to print and ship books to an address.
Your book must be fully set up with the eproof approved by you before you can place an order.
