The BookStore is proud to introduce print-on-demand services on the newest Espresso Book Machine located in the store. The EBM is a full integrated patented book making machine that will automatically print, bind and trim a high-quality paperback book in mere minutes. From printing the full colour cover and the black on white pages, to gluing and binding them into a perfectly bound paperback book, the EBM can produce a book that is virtually indistinguishable from one printed by a traditional publisher.

Print-on-demand is an efficient, cost effective technology that saves time, money, space and reduces our carbon footprint by altering the traditional book supply chain process. Books with copyright are printed at the BookStore with copyright permission ensuring that the creators and publishers of written works are properly compensated.

The BookStore will be able to increase our offering of books by printing on demand titles available through Google Books, Gutenberg Project, and other public domain book sources.
