Media Release — SLG Publishing is putting its nearly 25 years of experiencing up for hire as it opens the doors to SLG Works Consulting, a publishing services company. “Over the years I have had a number of people come to me for advice or ask me to help them with things as they started their comics publishing ventures” explained SLG owner and president Dan Vado. “We have always been pretty free with our time, and while I am still open to offering advice I feel that SLG as a company can be of more use to some people offering up some of our services for hire”.
While SLG Works will have a full-service option where the company will do everything but create the content, Vado feels that there might be more of a demand for the lists of a la carte services that SLG can offer. “Shipping, storage and fulfillment is probably the number one thing new publishers or self-publishers tend not to consider when they are making plans” Vado said “unless you are doing Print-On-Demand, you’re going to have to think about where your books are going to live and how they are going to get from point A to point B”.
Other services offered include promotional trailer production, producing music for existing trailers, print brokering and pre-press production and designing and producing merchandise from t-shirts to statues. “This is all stuff we have done for ourselves over the last 24 years” said Vado “Offering up what we have learned over the last two plus decades seemed like a natural progression for us.” said Vado while adding that this is not a move designed to put the SLG logo up for sale. “We’re not selling the brand, just the muscle behind it.”
