This list is not an endorsement of any of these companies. I am investigating how I can offer a print-ready PDF for customers where shipping costs are too high to buy a book online.
too expensive for me
File conversion was poor.
Still trying to figure out how to use service remotely. Need to check, may need to buy my own ISBNs.
Probably don't sell ISBNs
Site does not offer enough information without creating an account to make an informed decision.
