Print-on-Demand at Graphic Services

Graphic Services can produce high quality books. If you are looking for customized print materials for courses, conferences and events, an out-of-edition book, or you are a self-publishing author, our POD service provides low-run production of a variety of print materials, including teaser chapbooks, catalogues, custom conference journals, memoirs and cookbooks.


To submit a digital publication, convert your creative work into print-ready PDF files*, formatted the way you want them to look.

*Print-ready means that the files are already in proper format.

Copyright Permissions

Please note that if an item is NOT in the public domain, copyright permission needs to be secured from the author or publisher. Obtaining copyright permission requires additional labour and will include additional copyright fees to the overall cost of the book.ʉ۬

Our Custom Course Office employs a team of copyright specialists to assist you in obtaining the correct permissions for reprinted materials. Copyright permission must be secured from the copyright holder of any published work before we can reproduce that article or photograph.

Obtaining copyrights can be a complex process and the amount of time required can differ greatly depending on individual publishers and sources. For more information, contact Kim Derrah 519-850-2960.
