We are back to printing your chapbooks! After a brief hiatus, we are back with a vengeance, with the ultimate goal being to make Propaganda Press the number one place underground authors come to get noticed. I know we can do it, but it takes all of us.

We have reduced the price in our chapbook printing: reduced by $42 for small lots and $30 for larger lots, to bring you absolutely the lowest price we possibly could. In addition to this, we have added more royalties to our distribution. We now automatically distribute for all of our publications [save a $10 website maintenance fee per author per book published], and we pay each author of individual publications a 75¢ royalty per book sold [previously, we did not pay any royalties; in our goal of promoting artists, we have decided to eat the costs and to help support the authors, while still giving them low prices on publishing. It's the best of both worlds!]. You keep ALL of the books you buy from us and can sell them for ANY amount; we print ADDITIONAL books that we distribute on our website, and you get royalties off EACH one of those distributed books sold FOR LIFE!

Why print with us?

Our chapbooks are now 10 double-sided printed pages each, totaling 40 pages, and including a flashy colored-paper cover. You can easily fit 20-40 poems inside, still sell your books for $2.10 to break even [for larger lots], AND make a 75¢ royalty on all books we print and sell FOR LIFE! We distribute the book for free on our website, market it, make advertisements for it, give you an author profile on our website, and help promote your book in the underground scene. We also offer additional promotional products at super discount deals, such as vinyl stickers and glossy postcard advertisements.

Currently our chapbook printing prices [which covers the labor, shipping, printing, inks, CD-RWs, advertisements, copying, layout/typesetting, proofs/release forms, color covers, etc.] are:

50 chapbooks for $118
100 chapbooks for $210

Additional costs: $18 if you want us to design your cover using the help of local artists who read through your book and make a cover design to fit the material; $5 additional typesetting, if you send the material on paper and not on CD-R or CD-RW; $15 additional if we have to ship your package out of the U.S.

There is also an additional fee for the royalties, which is just a necessity due to the cost of checks, postage, transaction fees, and envelopes. This fee, however, comes out of your initial check, so you don't actually have to physically pay it, but we want to let you know about it. There is a $2.50 fee taken out of your first check of each year if we have to physically mail you a check, and there is a $1.50 fee taken out of your first transaction of each year if we pay you via your Paypal account. Royalties are cumulated and paid out quarterly, in March, June, September, and December of each year.


Since the website is currently down for construction, please email us at if you are interested in having a chapbook printed!
