So what I'm getting from watching multiple Kickstarters involving printing books... you should budget to scrap you entire first print run. You're going to make a mistake, or your printer is going to make a mistake they won't consider worthy of a reprinting, and you're going to have a load of books you aren't willing to ship to backers. I've seen this sink a project, or end with the creator losing money.

@CarlCravens HA!

Try "the first five prints".

...okay some of that was my fault, but it's still the case that 90% of printers are demonically posessed.

@CarlCravens And it's not the money that's the worst thing. You can save money by ordering one at a time. It's the waiting. Compiling a pdf takes ~3 seconds, then suddenly you're waiting a fortnight for the product.
