For 4 years now I have been doing short-run book publishing for my 3 cartridge books, and I have a few others in the pipeline. Up until now I have been using Staples when decent coupons were available for their copy & print center, as those prices were the best option as compared to other local printers, and the online on-demand printers required too much quantity, or had too many format or quality requirements to make it easy.
I have however, just discovered what looks like a decent place online out of Rochester, NY called book1one ( http://www.book1one.com ) and they specialize in short-run printing with different basic options for book formats. The thing that caught my attention is their instant quote system, and that the prices were easily half of whatever Staples best prices had ever been. It also allows you to change quantity for different quantity discounts. This should allow me to do cartridge books at lower prices for buyers while making more money for myself. If anybody wants to do a short booklet in spiral-bind or whatever, this may be worth checking.
There was a report at this link reporting that this company is doing really well apparently:
What else does anybody use for publishing like this?
