Print PlusTM

If you are interested in self-marketing your book, this option will provide you with the tools.

Following is a list of our “a la carte” services:

ISBN (International Standard Business Number) $ 55.00

The ISBN is a inventory control, stocking, and ordering number used by book publishers, printers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers, and libraries — essentially everyone in the supply chain of the book. A unique ISBN ensures that the end user (your reader) gets exactly what they intended to buy — including the edition, revision, format, and binding. NOTE: No Waste Publishing will be listed as the publisher, however, we do not own any rights to your book.  For more information about ISBN numbers, see our FAQ page.

Library of Congress Catalog Control Number $ 25.00

A Library of Congress catalog control number is a unique identification number that the Library of Congress assigns to the catalog record created for each book in its cataloged collections. Librarians use it to locate a specific Library of Congress catalog record in the national databases and to order catalog cards from the Library of Congress or from commercial suppliers. The Library of Congress assigns this number while the book is being cataloged. The above pricing includes an extra book being created and sent to the Library of Congress.  For more information about Library of Congress numbers, see our FAQ page.

Bar Code $ 20.00

A bar code is a graphical representation of your book’s ISBN and retail price. It is placed on the back cover of your book to allow automated scanning and point-of-sale transactions Most of the largest book retailers and wholesalers require books to display the Bookland EAN bar code, which is the only barcode that encodes the ISBN as well as the book's retail price.

Cover design Starts at $ 50.00

No Waste Publishing can help design the cover for your book. Most projects end up in the $ 150.00 range.  Our design services are unique to every book; we never use templates.

Copyright Information

In general, only the creator of an original work (or someone who has been lawfully transferred the copyright) can register a copyright.

The securing of copyright protection is frequently misunderstood. Copyright is secured automatically when a work is created. A work is “created” when it is fixed into a book, tape or electronic medium for the first time.

No publication, registration or other action in the U.S. Copyright Office is required to secure copyright. However, to enforce the copyright and for other practical reasons, you may want to register the copyright with the U.S. Copyright Office

Since 1989, a copyright symbol © has not been required in order to protect a copyright. However, it does put people on notice that your work is copyrighted and weakens any "innocent infringements." A person may use the © symbol even without registering the work with the U.S. Copyright Office.  For more information about Copyright, see our FAQ page.
