Lulu publishing, or “Lulu Press” as the company is now called, offers both print-on-demand and distribution services for books.
Which is better Lulu or IngramSpark?
IngramSpark is a low-cost self-publishing service designed exclusively to get your book into Ingrams Catalog. Lulu offers free upload and publishing, something IngramSpark charges a fee for. If you simply need to print books without Ingrams distribution, Lulu is more affordable and easier to use.

Who does Lulu distribute to?
Lulu distributes print books to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, the Ingram network, and more, including its own Lulu Bookstore. All in all, this global distribution service reaches over 40,000 retailers around the world. But Lulus extensive distribution network comes at a (literal) price: lower royalties.
Does it cost to publish on Lulu?
