xEmerald book printing (b/w interior, color cover)


The Emerald printing package was the no-frills method of turning a manuscript into a perfect bound paperback for your personal use only. It didn't include an ISBN nor distribution of any kind. The Emerald was discontinued as an option with the August 1, 2016 service upgrades.
