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.
As a result of these industry-wide challenges, effective November 6th, 2021, IngramSpark is increasing print pricing as follows:
- US (United States) market: 6% increase
- UK (United Kingdom) & AU (Australia) markets: 3% increase
These changes do not apply to freight, handling, or title setup related fees.

To help you assess any increases you may need to make to your retail pricing, we will be adding the future pricing view to our online pricing calculators. You should expect to see that view appear within the next two weeks. As a reminder, you can update your retail pricing through the IngramSpark website, with changes going into effect every Friday at 12:01 AM US Central Time.
We will also be identifying titles that will move into negative publisher compensation because of these price changes and will communicate that title information to you within the next two weeks.
We will continue to monitor and report on changes to the supply chain to ensure we provide the service you count on us to deliver.
Thank you for your continued business as we help your titles reach readers worldwide.
