On-Demand Publishing, LLC, doing business as CreateSpace, is a self-publishing service owned by Amazon.[3][4] The company was founded in 2000 in South Carolina as BookSurge and was acquired by Amazon in 2005.[5]


CreateSpace publishes books containing any content at all other than just placeholder text.[6] It neither edits nor verifies. Books are printed on demand, meaning each volume is produced in response to an actual purchase on Amazon.[7]

CreateSpace continued its publishing services for 8 years until its transfer to Amazon's Media on Demand. By 2018 it has published 1,416,384 books for over 15,000 authors.[8]

In July 2018, CreateSpace announced it would be transferring media to Amazon's Media on Demand services in the following months.[9] CreateSpace merged with Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) service later that year.[10][11]
