Publish to industry standards.
Below you will find the IBPA wording regarding “best practices” in black, while comments about Prairieland Press’s specific practices are in green.
A hybrid publisher accepts full responsibility for the quality of the titles it publishes. Books released by a hybrid publisher should be on par with traditionally published books in terms of adherence to industry standards, which are detailed in IBPA’s “Industry Standards Checklist for a Professionally Published Book.”
Prairieland Press is proud of the quality of the books it produces and adheres as closely to the standards as possible. Unfortunately, text on the spine of a 32-page paperback children’s book is still not possible with print-on-demand technology. We recognize that and live with it, because, at this time, we have no other choice.
