We are able manage the registration of your ISBN number and/or help generate a barcode for your book.

For ISBN number registration we need the following information:
  1. The full name of the title.
  2. Name and address of author or publisher – we wouldn’t recommend the use of a pseudonym for the registration name.
  3. Contact details: physical and/or postal address, telephone number, cell phone number, fax number, email address
  4. Is the publication available in one or more formats i.e. print only or print and eBook, etc.?

Commercial Printing
Commercial printing
The marketing and sales collateral that we print for businesses is known as commercial printing.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur that is just starting out, a small business owner or a director at a large corporation, odds are you will need to have printed collateral to leave behind with customers, stakeholders and shareholders.

Your business card may be small, but don’t underestimate its value – even in today’s digital world.

Poorly produced business cards don’t just end up at the backs of drawers; they affect your credibility with potential customers! Why not impress them instead?

At Print on Demand, we have invested in technology that automates the process of printing marketing and sales collateral. We call this our web–to–print solution. What this means for you as a company is that we work hand in hand with your team to upload all of your branding, logos and sales/marketing collateral to a secure website that is password-protected. We brand this secure portal with your company look and feel, and whenever a brochure or business card printing need comes up, your employees simply log in, select the item, request cost approval and print.

We receive the order, print and deliver it in time for the meeting. No fuss, no waiting, and no costly storage. It’s that simple.

Book Binding Options

PUR Bound: This is the preferred binding method of most mainstream publishers. It is stronger and more durable although slightly more expensive than Perfect binding, in addition a PUR bound book will typically require 24 hours for the book to set and is therefore not suitable for urgent deliveries.

Perfect Bound: Your standard square back softcover book binding method, the book needs to be 64 pages or more for this method to ensure a strong bind. To have text printed on the spine the book would need to be around 80 pages otherwise it’s too thin for text.

Saddle stitch: Also referred to as “two wire” stitching, this is a stapled book and us used for books below 64 pages. Your page count must be divisible by 4, if not, blank pages are added to the back of your book to make up for the shortfall.

Coil bound: Also referred to as plasticoil or spiral bound (like our old roadmap books). Recommended for books less than 25mm thick, between 48 and 470 pages.

Dust Jacket Hardcover: The case (technical term for the cover) can be bound with a printed lining or a material lining like book cloth, vinyl etc but would need to be foiled or blind embossed as we cannot print on these materials, a dustjacket is printed creased and wrapped around the case.

Casewrap Hardcover: The case (technical term for the cover) can be bound with a printed lining or a material lining like book cloth, vinyl etc but would need to be foiled or blind embossed as we cannot print on these materials.

Thesis Binding: Most theses binding is case wrapped i.e. a hard cover with gold lettering, the case or cover material can be in red black or green.

Signage & Vehicle Branding
Vehicle branding
Whether you’re looking to put up a bold new sign at the top of your building, redo your storefront for the next season or simply want to add some privacy to that glass boardroom, we can print it all. A plain simple design, something with a pattern or help designing your own signage, branding and interiors, Print on Demand is your go to.

Vehicle branding, decals and wrapping provide a high exposure, low-cost means of getting your business out there into the world. The business value of having your company name or website on your vehicles is immense – think how many more visits your site will get and how many new quotes that can generate?

No sign is a sign of no business. In the industry branding and signage is known as large format printing because it is these items which bear the mark of your business, that create brand awareness, tell people what products and services you offer and bring customers in off the street.

Most branding elements are commonly put up at your office factory and other business premises. These take the form of signage that includes your logo, business name, images, services you offer, trading hours and contact details. These can be put up as light boxes, created out of flexi face PVC or pasted down as sticker decals or vinyl on the windows and doors.

Does your company often host events? Training seminars, sales workshops and customer networking events all need signage and branding. Here vinyl, wallpapers, sticker decals, hanging and pull up banners are all important ways to make your mark both on the event space and in the minds of your attendees.

The most effective signage and branding solution available is vehicle branding. Whether it’s just placing your company details on the side of your delivery van or doing full vehicle wrapping on an entire logistics fleet, do not underestimate the new business and sales power of owning a mobile billboard in the form of your vehicles carrying your company’s services across the city.

A Variety of Printing Services Under One Roof

Print On Demand is a term used in the printing industry to describe the process of instantly producing — same day printing — only what you need, when you need it.
For instance, in the past if you were having a seminar or a conference with 50 delegates attending a forum on the state of printing companies in Cape Town, South Africa, one would normally have to print a few hundred or thousand brochures to reduce the printing cost price per unit. That has all changed with Print On Demand!
Today, it's possible to print exactly the right amount of product required for your conference and the attending delegates only a day before the conference takes place, expediting delivery and wasting absolutely nothing in the process.
