Questions on distribution and marketing

Is distribution just for books? 

PageMaster offers visual artists and photographers distribution through our on-line store so they can reach a wider audience with their prints and cards

Can you tell me what your fees are regarding publishing agreement and other distribution/promotion costs?  

All our distribution options are non-exclusive and you retain full rights to sell your work. Books or prints you purchase are at wholesale pricing. so you are not paying any royalties. Creative services are competitive and billed according to the complexity of the project.  

Basic distribution is available with all books printed by PageMaster. Books are listed on our online store and available through during office hours in Edmonton. A 27% commission rate applies (you get 73%) and there is no other fee for this service. 

Premium distribution is available for $108 and includes listings in Bowker books in print, PubStock (independent bookstores), and sales on our Amazon and iBooks stores. Distribution through Lighting Source POD can also be opted in. Currently a net commission of 18% applies (for $1000 worth of sales after third party fees, you get $820).
