IPS UK publisher clients only have until July 31st to take up our free recycling offer.
You can ask us to recycle as much of your excess stock as you like, completely free of charge, any time before then. Earlier in the year all publisher clients will have received an excess stock template, as well as a link to upload it. Even if you've already returned a request to have stock recycled you can use this same template and link to upload a new template containing additional stock. If you're pulping all stock of a title please remember to include "ALL" as the quantity, and if you haven't received a template please reach out and we'll point you in the right direction.
Our analysis shows that many publisher clients have almost a decade of excess units when adjusted for sales. With UK distribution space at a premium, and with the price of storage only likely to rise, we strongly recommend that you minimise your inventory wherever possible. Remember that as of August 1st 2023 our standard recycling rates will kick back in - now is the time to take advantage.
Remember that you can always use our industry leading Virtual Stock offering if removing all stock of a title is a prospect that fills you with dread. We'd love to work with you to be able to continue offering titles for sale through print-on-demand. If that sounds good to you contact your Publisher Coordinator at IPS UK in the first instance.
