Ka-Blam: Print On Demand

Do you have a completed graphic novel and want to see one printed copy, with covers and all?

Was just surfing and found Ka-Blam, a print-on-demand service specific to comics creators. Their size options cover standard and digest sized formats, AND they print in color. Their standard sized comics have a limit of 52 pages tops, but their digest size requires at least 64 interior pages.

What I like about the site is that you can ask for a quick price estimate by clicking on the Pricing/Ordering link on the top of the page. You can order as low as one copy, and you can lower your per unit cost if you permit them to include their ad. You get the biggest discount if you choose to have their ad on the back cover. (You'll have to pay an initial fee, however, apart from the shipping and handling charges, so the more copies you order, the better for you.)

I've tried to search for reviews about the Ka-Blam service but haven't found any, but the service is being run by digital comic book publisher 01comics, so it should be promising. They launched the service early last year.

Go check out Ka-Blam and see if they can be part of your arsenal.

Ka-Blam is a great on-line publishing company. I have read up on them while looking into publishing. There is an extensive interview with the team that the Comic Geek Speak podcast held. It was very informative and fun.
