As you may have heard, changes in print-on-demand services over at DriveThruRPG will mean an increase in the cost of the “premium color” option for printed books, starting in July, roughly a 30–40% increase in cost. This is due to the arrangement between DriveThru and their printer, and not something publishers can control, apart from lowering already tight profit margins on print-on-demand titles.
I’ll be looking into some additional print-on-demand options for Icons titles, including the “standard color” option and possibly even lower-cost black-and-white versions for some titles. However, implementing these options may require a significant investment of time, and my priority is on providing monthly content for the Icons Patreon, along with updating some of the classic adventures and Dan’s Hero Pack products, so new POD options may be slow in coming. I appreciate the patience of all current and prospective Icons fans, since Ad Infinitum Adventures is pretty much a one-person production shop (me) with Dan providing artwork and some writing as well.
So, if you have been holding-off on picking up that printed Icons title, now is the time, before prices go up!
