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 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 sales staff at our headquarters. Known as “The Crossroads of America,” Indianapolis is an ideal location for a national book distributor.

Primary distribution services we offer our client publishers included book sales, warehousing and fulfillment, customer service, billing and collection, metadata management, and trade marketing. In addition we were one of the first national book distributors to offer e-book conversion and distribution services. If a publisher needs help with editing, production, and consumer marketing we can assist you in those areas as well. Today CPG is truly a full service national book distributor.

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 standard book distribution.
