Now, however, the more successful indie publishers don't have to limit themselves to POD. Nowadays it is possible to order up small print runs of books from chinese print operations at sub-POD prices and get books indistinguishable from tradpub hardcovers. Works for the folks who have been around and won.t sweat a few thousand dollars' investment.
Once you're able to spend a few thousand dollars on a print run, you've moved out of the standard self-pub wheelhouse and are effectively running an independent publisher, and of course the books are indistinguishable from commercial publishers' output, they're the same thing.
