When I first started investigating the Print-On-Demand market about ten years ago, one of the stumbling blocks for me was that the quality of POD books just wasn't up to the standards of conventionally printed books. There were stories of blurred text, bindings that fell apart after a year or so, and so on. That was why I decided to have 1500 copies of the books printed by a company whose quality I trusted. I'm not hearing as many of these stories lately, but they still crop up from time to time. Is there any substance to them? How do you folks who have had POD books published feel about the quality of the print or binding job you received?
