Lightning Source was founded in 1997 and is the largest printer of books in the world, having printed over 100 million books for nearly 25,000 publishers (including many on this website). They have printing facilities in various parts of the world, but are headquartered in Tennessee (USA). The company has printing capabilities for most standard sizes in paperback and hardcover formats; however, they do not handle special trim sizes, inks, inserts, or other options. Quantities start at a single copy via print-on-demand and 750 (hardcover) and 2,000 (paperback) via offset press. Although Lightning Source is first and foremost a book printer, they do offer some publishing services. Authors must form a publishing identity, however, to be a client.
