About Us


We believe that you don't have to sacrifice quality to make an affordable textbook.


Premium Source Publishing was established in 1999 to serve the custom publishing and intellectual property management needs of colleges and college bookstores. We are a small business, and we pride ourselves on the outstanding personal service only a small business can provide. Don't let our size fool you. We offer all the services larger publishers provide—at a fraction of the price.


Our Values


MISSION: To provide academic institutions and their faculty a legal and economical way to offer students the most current and relevant information available.


COMMITMENT: Providing our customers with the highest level of customer service is our number one priority. We pride ourselves on our ability to not just answer your questions, but to anticipate your every need. We walk you through the ordering process, keeping you informed every step along the way.

EXCELLENCE: We strive for perfection in everything we do. Our dedication to continuous training makes our staff the best of the best. So, whether we are navigating copyright law, designing a cover that will get your book noticed, or printing your book on our newest digital press, you know you are getting the first-class service you deserve.

QUALITY: We are dedicated to providing educational materials of the highest quality. On top of offering only the finest quality materials, we have a full-service production facility that utilizes the most current digital reprographic equipment available. We replace our production equipment yearly to keep up with the latest technological advances.

PRESERVATION: We are proud to be doing our part for the environment. As an FSC certified printer, all of our paper stocks come from FSC certified responsibly managed forests. So, take a deep breath; our forests will be here for years to come.

VALUE: We believe in making educational materials affordable for all students. In fact, 90% of our books retail for less than $40.00. 56% of our books retail for less than $20.00. Now that's savings your students can take to the bank!

INTEGRITY: We take pride in establishing and nurturing relationships with our customers. We never keep you out of the loop, blow smoke, or overpromise. We are always firmly in your corner.

SERVICES

What we offer


PRINT

Custom textbooks, course packs, course readers...a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Our dedicated staff is here to help make your book shine—inside and out. Whether you need help selecting the right content, have questions about copyright law, need help with formatting, or just have questions about which production options will help your book stand out—we're here to help.

DIGITAL

Digital textbooks (ePacks) are the newest edition to our product lineup. Our cloud platform provides a convenient solution for students on the go, and includes built-in tools to help your students succeed. Students can access their materials at any time, from anywhere they have an internet connection. We use adaptive HTML5 for a consistent design across all platforms and devices.

DESIGN

We don’t just stop at cover design. We offer a full range of design services that will help your book stand out in the crowd. Whether you have an existing layout that just needs some adjustments or you need your book built from the ground up, our designers are up to the challenge. We’ll give your book a polished, professional look that will help your content shine.



OER

Open educational resources (OER) can be accessed by you and your students freely. We know what you are thinking…If OER is free, why would my students pay for a printed copy? Simply put, it’s what they want. In a recent survey led by Naomi Baron of American University, nearly 92% of students age 18-26 said they concentrate best when reading from a hard copy.1 Plus, in most cases it is cheaper to buy one of our OER packs than to print it at home.

OUT-OF-PRINT BOOKS

You've already found the perfect book for your class, but the publisher just stopped making it. No need to start frantically looking for a new option, or leave your students struggling to find used copies on the web. We can get the rights to reprint it. Our dedicated permissions specialists will negotiate with the rights holder on your behalf, to get the lowest price possible. Most often, our reprint costs less that the original book.

PERMISSIONS

Let's face it, navigating copyright law can be a real headache. Our permissions specialists are committed to making this process as painless as possible, managing the rights clearance process from start to finish. We track down the rights holders and negotiate agreements on your behalf. We pay the royalties and maintain the documentation. You can breathe easy knowing your book or project is 100% copyright compliant.
