On a recent round of member visits by ECPA’s President Mark Kuyper, a common refrain was noticed: "We need ECPA’s help in identifying solutions and trusted vendors” for a number of publishing-related activities.

Over the years, hundreds of companies have approached us with service and product offerings, as well as ideas of how ECPA might help them to succeed in serving the Christian publishing community. In response, ECPA has learned to judge each suitor by asking three simple questions.

How can they...

  1. Increase publisher revenue?
  2. Increase publisher efficiency?
  3. Decrease publisher costs?

Companies that can answer one or more of these questions with sufficient merit and a proven track record are encouraged to become Affiliate Members of ECPA (check out the list of current Affiliates here).

There is a smaller subset of Affiliate members that are qualified as ECPA | solution providers and carry our highest recommendation. The types of services these
companies offer are:

Automated Stock Availability Services Freight Services
Bibliographic Information Management Media Liability Insurance
Business Intelligence Project Management
Copywriting/Editing Proofreading
Digital Asset Management/Distribution Publishing-related Legal Advice
Digital Galley/Online Review Services Rights/Royalty Management
Electronic Document Exchange (EDI) Telephone/Email Customer Service


In each of these areas, ECPA has selected providers who can deliver your company the best value and quality along with a strong commitment to hold these vendors accountable to the level of service we expect from our solution providers.

If you would like more information about any of these services and the companies behind them, please contact Michael Covington.
