associates who want to support charitable projects by purchasing cookbooks
from you instead of bookstores. Generate sales through your group’s
newsletter, website, by phone, special mailings or at group events.

Increase your Sales

of each book. The label can read something like this:

support the projects of (name of group). For additional copies, please contact:
123 Baker St.

Profits are excellent -
groups have sold from 12 to 1,000 books, raising as much as $12,000! The
more books you sell, the more money you raise. The average profit is $9-$10 per book!
Should you collect

If your customers prepay
for their order, it finalizes the sale, making it easy for your group to
order enough books and avoid disappointment or delay! For maximum profit, we
recommend that you charge the suggested retail price.

on destination and quantities ordered. Contact us
