After I Order A Book, When Can I Expect To Receive It?

Whether you order 1 or 1,000 copies, FastPencil sells POD (print on demand) books and eBooks. When a physical book is purchased, it is printed and shipped to the buyer. When an eBook is purchased, the buyer receives email instructions and can download the book directly from the logged-in user-view of the FastPencil Dashboard. Using the POD method, the author/publisher does not have to front the high cost to print or store a large inventory of books. 


  • Paperback books are typically printed and bound within 7-10 business days.
  • Hardcover books usually take 10-15 business days to print and bind.
  • Typical shipping methods, Ground (2-7 business day delivery) depending on location and Express (2-3 business day delivery).

Once the order ships, the buyer will receive an e-mail with the shipment details.
