CPG History

Cardinal Publishers Group (CPG) began offering independent publishers book distribution services in the spring of 2000. Today we represent a wide variety of independent publishers with programs ranging from just a few titles to hundreds of active titles. Whether a publisher is big or small, we strive to provide the best possible full-service book distribution to our client publishers throughout North America and beyond.

Our modern distribution facility is nearly 400,000 cubic feet and a good place to house your books. We have an experienced sales team with reps throughout the US and Canada, and an experienced staff at our headquarters. Our central location in Indianapolis places us close to your customers. Known as “The Crossroads of America,” Indianapolis is an ideal location for a national book distributor.

Back in 2000, the primary services we offered our client publishers included book sales, warehousing and fulfillment, customer service, billing and collection, metadata management, and trade marketing. Today we continue to offer all of those services, but in 2008 also added e-book conversion and distribution services to our repertoire.

It has always been our goal to make book distribution a collaborative process, so we consult with our client publishers on a wide range of publishing issues that go well beyond the scope of distribution.
