ABC's Betty the Book Machine is not just for books that already exist: we can turn your digitally formatted text into a book. Submit your manuscript to a publisher in book form, or have your dissertation, family cookbook, memoirs, blog or poems printed and bound - now also in color!
View our ABC EBM Books list to see a selection of what has been self published via Betty.
In order for us to print and make your book, you have to sign the following affidavit stating that you 'own the rights to' or 'have permission to use' the information in your book.
Please bring this form with you, or post / fax / email it to us.
The EBM only accepts Portable Document Files (.pdf) - this is in order to maintain the fonts, margins and internal formatting of your document.
The PDF is a stable file format that ensures your book will look exactly as it does when you format it on your home computer.
If the files are formatted correctly, the turnaround time from file submission to the finished product can be very fast.
You will have to provide us with 2 PDF files that are finalized and ready to be uploaded and printed - "print ready".
Note: We cannot work with "Password Protected" files.
We prefer submissions via email as there are often problems with files submitted via usb stick. It is possible to have your "self published" books printed from Sunday to Friday until 15h00, depending on our specialized operators being available and the files being correct.
We recommend that you send it via email ahead of time so that you aren't disappointed if the files need changing or there isn't anyone available to help you when you arrive.
A quick "upload and print" depends on the files being as described in the guidelines above.
This depends on the quality of the submitted files. Even if the guidelines are followed to the letter, there could be some changes necessary. The specialized operators will check your files, making sure that book block size and cover size are correct. Then they will upload your file to check it on the EBM's interface. If it is able to be uploaded looks correct and looks correct, they will print a first copy.
If everything is perfect, this process could take about half an hour. The actual printing and binding of the book takes an average of 7 minutes - depending on how many pages it has.
You don't need an ISBN if you're not planning to sell it to the public, and you can always add an ISBN later if you change your mind.
If you would like your book to be added to our website it must have an ISBN.
It is possible to get your own ISBN via Bureau ISBN or we can register it for you for € 25.
If your book was created using Betty (EBM) and has an ISBN, we can add it to our database. It is then a "print on demand" book and can be purchased via this website.
It might also be possible to organize a book launch in the store or our external event venues.
The ABC 10% Off Cards and Large Quantity Discount** of up to 25% apply to Self Published and Print On Demand books printed on Betty the Book Machine.
** 10% ABC discount isn't added to Large Quantity Discount.
The regular ABC and special EBM (Self Publishing) Gift Certificates are valid for printed books.
