Ways to self-publish octavo-sized music
Date: April 18, 2012
I've done most of my "self-publishing" work by delivering you-print-it PDFs. However, successful and convenient as that has been, time after time... there shortly may (if all goes well) be a need for me to actually PUBLISH music, at or close-to-at octavo (or "mistaken for octavo at arm's length") size.
I can find plenty of "print on demand" houses for BOOKS, but Googling "music print on demand" gets me publisher's site after publisher's site, at which you can buy THEIR music, printed on demand. I have yet to find a "print YOUR music on demand" service. Doesn't mean it's not out there... but I haven't found it.
I suppose I could go to Kinko's and have them fold and cut things, but that seems like a good way to get things done not particularly correctly, time after time, and in bulk. No complaints about Kinko's! But the charm of done-by-hand is that each creation is unique, which is exactly what I don't need in this circumstance.
Any suggestions, or people whom I should contact who might have said suggestions?
Thanks so much for the help!
