Information for Publishers

Book sales:

  • The PBS / Inpress will man one central till at the fair to encourage visitors to browse all the tables and make the process of purchasing books as straightforward as possible.
  • We will need a full list of titles a week before the event (grid to follow)
  • All sales will be reported to publishers within 2 weeks and sales money transferred by BACs.
  • Inpress will send publishers an invoice for the cost of their table, to be settled (by BACs or cheque) before the 28th September.

 Book deliveries/POS:

  • All publishers are responsible for arranging a book delivery and collection at the end of the festival.
  • We are happy to package up your books but you must supply a box and return delivery address labels.
  • Banners and POS are welcome, publishers are encouraged to attend the festival and man their tables, however we understand this is a busy time of year, so if you are unable to be there for the full four days, the PBS/Inpress can manage the set-up, sales and breakdown and take note of any customer queries.
