Amazon Acquires Print-on-Demand Company

Amazon.com has bought privately held BookSurge LLC (http://www.booksurge.com), which maintains a catalog of books that can be printed on demand. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. BookSurge maintains a catalog of thousands of titles that can be printed on-demand and are available for sale on Amazon.com. Amazon's new relationship with BookSurge will provide Amazon customers an ever-expanding selection of titles that are not available through other channels. An Amazon representative said: "Print-on-demand has changed the economics of small-quantity printing, making it possible for books with low and uncertain demand to be profitably produced."

BookSurge offers its inventory-free book fulfillment network to publishers through BookSurge Publisher Services and to authors through BookSurge Publishing. In addition, retailers, wholesalers, and distributors can leverage the BookSurge Direct wholesale platform. BookSurge, based in Charleston, S.C., was founded in 2000.
