Bulk Book Services
Porchlight is dedicated to providing high-touch, human support to authors, organizations looking for books in bulk, and the publishing industry. The services we’ve tailored to meet them are not governed by an algorithm, but by the collective experience and wisdom attained over our nearly 40 years as a bulk book logistics company.
I can’t say enough about the great work Porchlight does for authors! Need a landing page for a bulk purchaser who wants people to be able to sign up to get the book and wants the page live within 24 hours? Porchlight did it in less than two hours from inquiry to live. Need a place to sign books you’re sending out to purchasers? Porchlight made me right at home. Every step of the way, Porchlight has done a great job!
I have long admired who you are, what you do, the passion you have for your work, the love of great ideas that is so evident in all of your ventures. From the books you magically find and ship to authors at the moment they need them most, to the amazing party you throw to bring the business book community physically together, to the breakthrough ideas you spotlight on ChangeThis, it all carries a stamp of excellence.
The Porchlight team don't just believe in books—they are passionate about bringing the ideas in them to the readers that authors want to impact. Their dedication and years of experience supporting authors to spread their ideas manifest in the form of stellar editorials, targeted promotion and sales logistics. If you're looking for support to launch or share your book with the world, Porchlight will help you navigate that journey.
In a world where people make a lot of promises and don’t follow through, I can always count on them to get the books where I need them, on time. Porchlight is one of the very few services that truly works.
Advertising & Giveaways
We offer easy and effective advertising options for publishers and authors to get their books in front of, and literally in the hands of, avid readers.
We report all book sales run through Porchlight Book Company to The New York Times and NPD BookScan.
Whether it’s part of training someone for a job, an add-on at a conference, or a holiday gift, we can customize books to make a lasting impression.
Bulk Book Pricing
We offer competitive discounts on bulk book orders, and an array of options for how to process them.
Our one-page order platform provides a quick and easy way to execute your pre-order campaign, book promotion, book club, or corporate gifting program.
We excel at managing high-touch, large quantity orders on tight, specific timelines—including international shipments.
We not only move books, we immerse ourselves in them, attempting to understand the ideas and intent of the authors, and help spread those we believe in.
Mass Book Mailing
We excel at moving a lot of books at once, even if that means sending them individually to many hundreds or even thousands of different addresses.
Personalized Customer Service
We understand that every order is unique, and often needs the flexibility that only a dedicated personal representative can provide.
Wildflower Book Bundle
We recently assembled and shipped out a custom book bundle for Wildflower: A Memoir by Aurora James! For this project, we assembled each individually-addressed box with a hardcover copy of the book, a gift note, and a small burlap bag of wildflower seeds.
We love moving a lot of books at once, even if that means sending them individually to many hundreds or even thousands of different addresses. We excel at those kinds of all-hands-on-deck, high-touch, customized orders and mass book mailings!
