IngramSpark Price Increase

I am just spreading the word. If you use IngramSpark to print books, they are raising their prices again. This time by 6%. Are we not surprised?

They released the following statement: “Amidst significant uncertainty in the global supply chain, IngramSpark is committed to supporting the book industry with the best possible service through the busy holiday season and into 2022. Over the past several months, the publishing industry has seen several cost increases for consumables, such as paper and packaging materials, as well as an increase in the cost of labor. Operating safely during the pandemic also has required additional resources and investments in manufacturing and distribution centers.”
