How Lulu Works

Founded in 2002, Lulu.com revolutionized the publishing industry by introducing free online publishing to the world. For do-it-yourself authors, Lulu provides free tools for print and eBook creation, free ISBNs for identification, and free distribution to a global network of online bookstores. Other than a proof copy to approve, there are no minimum purchases for authors and no hidden fees.

Lulu’s cutting-edge print-on-demand technology reduces waste by printing books only after they have been purchased. This not only preserves our natural resources, but it also eliminates the need for authors to maintain costly inventories. As a result, books are shipped directly from the printer to the reader – saving trees, energy, and storage costs.
