Bookstore and Library Information

We love readers, and we love the people who help connect readers to books they’ll adore. To that end, we’ve made ordering Bull City Press titles about as easy as it gets with a small press.  But if you’ve still got questions, you can always contact our team at sales <<at>> bullcitypress [dot] com or call (919) 883-5585 for more information.

Bookstores

Our newer titles (everything published after 2015) are distributed by Small Press Distribution.  Please check their stock for titles before you head below for additional information.

Quantity discounts for returnable trade paperbacks

Assorted 6 or more copies: 55%
2-5 copies: 45%
1 copy: 30%

Inch

Though issues do not have an ISBN or barcode number, bookstores routinely carry Inch.  We offer a 45% discount on the list price for orders of four copies or more.

Terms

We accept purchase orders by postal mail or by e-mail, and we’re happy to take orders by phone if you have a PO number handy.  We follow any special instructions that are listed on purchase orders regarding shipping and billing addresses, number of copies of the invoice, and delivery date requirements.  While every bookseller loves to be paid within 30 days, we generally require payment within 180 days, which is, coincidentally, how long you have to return titles.  Shipping costs are included in the customer invoice, which is issued when the last item on your order has been shipped.

Desk copies of trade paperbacks

If your bookstore has already placed an order, one free desk copy is available for each class in which the book is taught. Desk copy requests should be made from a .edu e-mail account or on institutional letterhead.  Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery.

Returns

Unless otherwise noted on your invoice, overstock books may be returned from 90 days until 180 days after the date of invoice. Credit will not be issued for books returned beyond 180 days. All postage and shipping charges on returns must be paid by the customer. Please be sure to pack your returns properly, as we will not be able to accept items damaged in transit due to poor packaging. Returned books must be clean, unmarked, unlabeled, salable copies of editions currently in print; credit will not be issued for damaged copies.  

Libraries

Hello, librarian, we’re delighted to help you add Bull City Press titles to your collection.  Please check Small Press Distribution for current (2015-present) titles.  We offer a 15% discount for libraries adding three or more titles to the collection in a single order.   Libraries ordering three or more copies of Inch on standing order also receive a 25% discount on the list price.  Contact us at sales <<at>> bullcitypress [dot] com to set up your standing order.
