This blog will, first of all, not deal with methods to reach out to traditional publishers for one simple reason: to do so would be paramount to attempting to write a blog post about how to win the lottery. The odds are against you, your time is better spent doing something else than sending in countless manuscripts which aren’t going to be read, sorry to say. Generally speaking you need an agent to have a shot at getting published, and to get an agent you need to be published.
Now, more feasible options.
You want to avoid going and grabbing your home inkjet or laserjet printer and trying to actually make your own book. There is exciting technology in the works to allow home or office printers to print efficient paperback books. But that is still a long way off and using your printers that way will simply burn through ink and toner without giving you a good product. By all means feel free to turn you settings down and print out a copy for editing, but not for the finished project.
Next you could consider a print on demand service. Digital printing has come a very long way and some of the applications are great. These companies, which you can find online, take your data files and literally just print out a book for you. Most are paperback and the quality is decent. But be careful. Some of these companies, the ones who act like they have some sort of selection process or who make you buy bulk books which they will sell for you, these are scam sites.
