Self Publishing VS Publishing House: Which is better?

We have all asked ourselves that at least once. Much more than once, in fact.

There are many things to consider when it comes to publishing your book. Should you go the traditional route and work with a publishing house? Or, should you self-publish? Both have their pros and cons, and it’s important to weigh all your options before making a decision. In this blog post, we’ll explore the pros and cons of both self-publishing and publishing with a publishing house, to help you make the best decision for your book.

There are several ways to self-publish your artistic project, but before deciding which is best for you, make sure your comic book is well planned and ready to be presented.
It may seem like an obvious point, but it is important to make sure your book is as polished as possible before you put it out into the world.
Once you’re confident that your book is ready for publication, the next step is to decide how you’re going to self-publish it.

The choice of self-publishing or relying on a publisher can radically change the way you should present the project. Here’s a look at the differences between the two options, and how they might affect your project!

Self Publishing VS Publishing House: How to present the same project in two different ways

If you’re looking to self-publish, you’ll need to be prepared to do more work upfront, because you’ll need to have the entire project finished before you can send it to print.
However, this also means you have complete control over the final product.

If you’re looking to submit your project to a publishing house, you’ll need to be prepared to do a bit less work upfront.
This is because you’ll only need to submit a few drawn and painted pages, character designs, setting studies, and a synopsis. This way, the publisher can decide if they’re interested in the project without you having to do all the work.
A useful, convenient way to handle any changes as the work progresses. Quite a recurring problem while designing a book with a publisher.
