    So Geoff... Seeing how that postage cost doesn't add value to anyone but the postal service... Have you considered going through a self publisher and just selling through their web store? That would lower the total cost to the buyer, but not impact you. Just a thought.

    No, have not considered that option.   I would need details of how to go about that.  I realise postage costs are a deterrent, but  this is a low volume enterprise, mainly responding to requests over the years to put in book form.

    I recommend you check out this company: https://www.blurb.com/sell-and-distribute 
    I've used this company for years to make photo books of the kids each year for the grandparents. The rest of the family has begun doing the same because they're so easy to make and come out looking like a commercially printed hardback book. Their quality is fantastic and they have no issue printing one-off books.
    I haven't published or sold books through them, but I've researched it for work related purposes. You can choose to publish your material in the Blurb bookstore as softcover, PDF, or hardcover and make it available on the Blurb bookstore. Simply steer your customers to the store, they choose their preferred format, and pay with a credit card. The book is shipped direct to the customer. Blurb sends you a check or deposit regularly. You also set the price, so you set your profit margin. Cost of printing or distribution is baked into what the customer pays. It really is that brutally simple. POD, or print on demand, has revolutionized publishing and streamlined it like never before.

    Thanks, I'll investigate.   As I said, this is not a big deal, certainly not entered in to as  as a money-making scheme, but as a service to club members.
