Print on Demand - Fees

Utilizing our Espresso Book Machine (EBM), the Library's Print on Demand service can print and bind a variety of materials such as:

  • student thesis/dissertations
  • faculty and UPEI publications
  • journals
  • course packs
  • reproductions of public domain works
  • reprints from our digitized collections (where we have obtained permission or where the material is in the public domain)

To request a quote for the production of a book, please fill in the Print on Demand Request Form.

A one time processing/conversion fee of $75 will be applied to prepare the digital file for the EBM and the fee includes the printing of a sample copy for the client.
