Described as “the ATM of books,” the EBM Version 2.0 is a fully integrated patented book-making machine that can automatically print, bind, and trim on demand at point of sale perfect-bound library-quality paperback books with 4-color covers (indistinguishable from a book on a bookstore shelf) in minutes for a production cost of a penny a page.

As an international book publishing services provider, Schiel & Denver is focused on enhancing book sales for authors with innovative, low cost and minimum risk print-on-demand solutions. The Espresso Book Machine is the latest pioneering distribution channel to join the Schiel & Denver specialist ISBN book distribution and author-to-market pathways.

The Espresso Book Machine® Channel will give authors the option to make available the books they have stored in the Schiel & Denver digital library, and have those titles printed, bound, and delivered at thousands of point of sale locations across the world including libraries, airports, ski resorts, university and retail bookstores, on demand, and in minutes.
