Can I print and send a copy of my book on request?
CREATE SPACE is your best choice; you are uploading a PDF of the book inside (front, back and spine) and a PDF of the album. They do not send it, they do not print it; Cratespace takes over the entire pressure and the fulfilment. Self-publication and free distributor for textbooks, CD, DVD To fix some misunderstandings:
Bookshops will keep Createspace products. I' m always getting a book at a bookstore. However, it is a wasted amount of floor area as more book purchases are made on-line than in conventional bookshops. As a rule, bookshops do not keep Createspace AND Ingram Spark products because of the returns policy of both of them.
It' has nothing to do with the fact that Createspace is in the possession of Amazon, or with some kind of imaginary rivalry between bookshops and Amazon. It is not a better choice, but just one that I would suggest because of the cost of it. One only drawback of Create Space is that most independant bookshops do not maintain or maintain your book (because Create Space is the property of its major rival Amazon).
Use IngramSpark (How to Publish a Book) is a better way. Amazons print version. You use CreateSpace to reformat your book, and when you are publishing it, you should choose an options that provides a print selling experience for your book. So you can simultaneously sale e-books and print.

The POD means that your book is made to order; there is no stock of your book. If someone buys your book through Amazon.com or BN.com, the order is sent to the POD printers, where your book is reprinted and sent to the mail. Bookshops and other merchants with an Ingram or Baker & Taylor account can order a copy of your book at retail prices and the order will be shipped and shipped in print.
Except your book is flagged as recyclable, but it is less likely that your bookshops will have them in storage. You don't have to pay to print your book in advance or keep it in a deposit. There is no need to concern yourself with the sale of your equipment. Disadvantages: Lower print qualitiy. Traditionally, print output from your printer varies from book to book or even from page to page.
Increased print costs per book. Not so suitable for children's literature due to the low colour and costly hardcover. Fewer likely your book will be in the shops (even if you flag your book as reusable). Advanced Deployment is similar to the conventional book deployment where your book is preprinted and stocked in a storehouse.

An advantage of extended redistribution is that a reseller can ship copy of your book and its promotional material to Barnes & Noble, Ingram and Baker & Taylor purchasers, increasing your chance of being placed in bookshops.
They can use off-set print, which enables better per book print cost for long runs and higher print work. Better suited for children's literature and other literature with special print option. The book will be presented to the book buyer, so that you have a better opportunity to be collected from brickworks and mortars.
To use a stock of ledgers for purchase orders, you must print it in advance. Extra charges once your book is on sale: warehousing, return and shipment. They may not resell the printed stock, so that they have "leftover" ledgers.
