Top reasons to publish electronically by disk:

  1. Accessible without internet connection.

  2. More easily definable and traceable sold “copy” then pure electronic file.

E-Magazine Volume 12 Issue 3: Define A-Z Tuesday, Mar 5 2013 

Advanced Reading Copy (ARC): A sample publication produced with author/customer submitted material.  Many times this is in an alternate binding (or unbound with small publications) than the main publishing.  The reproduction process is usually not the same as the main printing (100+) and therefore differences in quality, text block placement, etc. may occur between the ARC and the published book.  For POD, however, this gives the customer the chance to see the quality of photograph the supplied material will produce.  Since Gregath works mainly from submitted camera ready copy, an ARC is generally not necessary.  Our quality guarantee  covers any printer error (such as upside down photos) that may occasionally occur.

Adhesive binding: Soft or hard type binding – most associated with perfect soft  binding. Pages held together by adhesive/glue, rather than any form or sewing or mechanical attachment (stapled). Block then attached to paper (soft) or hard cover case.
