Question I have compiled a family history book to be distributed only to family members. Does anyone know a way to get only a few copies printed? It's about 80 pages long.
Thanks,
Mary Pate

Check out Blurb.com. It worked for me and I was very satisfied with the results

Thanks, Adam. Additional questions. How many pages and how many copies did you have printed? Then, there's how bound? Appreciate your help.

I had one copy made to "check" it out. My book was 92 pages, but I believe the minimum to be 20. Rather than retype it all into their format, I scanned the pages into a jpeg file and then pasted them in. I just recently ordered 3 additional copies for family. Glad I could help

Additional info; I had it hard bound with cover and printed on deluxe? paper. There are many options available.

Thanks once again. My book is about 85 pages. So, close to yours. I was wondering about just having one copy printed, too. Sounds like a good idea. I'm hung up right now with Microsoft Word on changing page format. It'll be nice to see it in book form.

I used createspace on Amazon to do two family books. Look on amazon and search my name donna Gawell and you will see the covers.

This cost me NOTHING to do and I was able to buy 5 proof copies for about $5.00 Relatives who want the story need to buy it on Amazon.

It is relatively easy to do. I think this is a great idea because the books will hopefully be on amazon as long as they are in business. I charged minimum because they are for the family to purchase. Full color!
