FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

  1. Do you offer copyright services?

    • We do not offer copyright services. We suggest you run an Internet search on "how to copyright a book" to see if copyrighting is right for your book.

  2. What is an ISBN?

    • If you are planning to distribute your book through booksellers, you will need an ISBN or International Standard Book Number. The ISBN is a unique numeric commercial for book identification. In the United States, ISBNs are issued by a company called Bowker at this website: ISBN.org. Other organizations offer ISBNs for sale, but purchasing your ISBN from Bowker is the only way to ensure that you are the owner of that ISBN.

  3. Can I buy an ISBN from Qualimage Printing?

    • No. We do not sell ISBNs, and we recommend that you purchase your ISBN directly from Bowker at ISBN.org.

  4. Do I need a barcode for my book, and, if so, how can I get one?

    • If you are planning to distribute your book through booksellers, you will need a barcode that encodes the ISBN and contains pricing information. We recommend you order the barcode from Bowker at ISBN.org at the same time you order your ISBN.

  5. How soon will I get my printed book?

    • The clock starts from the time you approve the proof—either a soft - or a hard-copy proof. Once we receive your confirmation, along with your payment, it takes us 3-5 business days to complete and ship the order. Unless otherwise requested, we ship all orders via UPS Ground service, which takes 3-5 days to most parts of the US. (See Shipping [hyperlink to Shipping paragraph on Services page]) If you require rush shipment or prefer a different method of delivery, such as FedEx or US Post Office, or would like to pick up your books in person at our Englewood, Colorado, office, you will have an opportunity to request that on the Upload Files page.

  6. When do I get charged for the order?

    • After our team has analyzed your files, they will prepare an invoice for you based on your final book count, services ordered (such as design services, hard-copy proof, etc.), and shipping. At this point, you can enter your credit card details. When we receive your payment, the clock starts ticking on our 3-5 business days processing of your order. (Remember, shipping time is in addition to our production time.)
