It’s a new year and we’ve got some good news and a little bad news.
First some good news … we recently redesigned our Fedhealth.net site and have a new shopping cart and affiliate program provider for our PDF ebook with some cool new features.
The bad news is due to increased paper and freight costs, our 266-pageIT’S A DISASTER!paperback cost for standard red books (by the case) and custom book orders (1k & up) bundled into large bulk prints is now $6.00 U.S. each (60% off list) plus freight.
We will continue to provide free customization, and the freight cost will be whatever our printer and warehouse charges us so we’ll provide estimates before any bulk orders ship.
Some more good news is … a NEW option for anyone wanting custom printed books in small quantities and on rush orders is short-run pricing that will totally depend on the quantity needed. The per book price will be less than our $14.99 list, but more than $6 each price mentioned above due to the smaller print.
Our 282-page PDF ebook is still only $5 each and you can now “gift” ebook purchases to your family and friends. And custom ebooks in bulk are still discounted as low as $2 each.
Fedhealth’s Affiliate Program associated with our preparedness and first aid ebook is now through a provider with more features so consider joining for free to earn 30% (or $1.50) on each $5 ebook ordered using a special link on your site, blog or social media.
Also, if you have a large fan, member or customer base, we can design a custom ebook for free so you can raise funds with it for yourself and/or a charity – learn more.

Unfortunately with the price of everything going up it is impacting book publishers with increased paper and freight costs, meaning it is going to affect our clients, as well.
For many years our $5 bulk book price (70% off list) included freight in the U.S., but shipping costs have been brutal on us the past 2 years, so we had to make a tough decision that hopefully we can reverse someday if the economy turns around.
As of January 2022, our 266-pageIT’S A DISASTER!paperback (both standard red books [by the case] and custom book orders [1k & up] bundled into large bulk prints) will be $6.00 U.S. each (60% off list) plus freight.
We will continue to provide FREE customization and we always pass through whatever freight discounts are given to us (i.e. we charge whatever our printer charges us.)
Also a NEW option for anyone wanting custom printed books in small quantities and on rush orders is short-run pricing that will totally depend on the quantity needed. It will be less than our $14.99 list price, but again, depends on how many custom books you want. We will have some stepped pricing online soon, and we can always provide estimates in the meantime.
Prices will remain the same on our 284-page interactive PDF ebook that starts at only $5 each (~70% off list) and goes as low as $2 each (or less) in large bulk with unlimited customization.
Please call 520.907.2153 or email firstname.lastname@example.org anytime for quotes esp. if you want to lock in the 2021 $5 / book bulk price with free freight for now, and learn more at fedhealth.net

No matter where you live there is a chance some type of disaster or emergency can (or at some time will) occur.
Whether it’s a flood, fire, hurricane, a chemical spill forcing an evacuation, active shooter scenario, civil unrest or your child getting a bloody nose … stuff happens.
The question is … what are YOU gonna do about it?
U.S. First Responders Association’s custom 284-page PDF version of our IT’S A DISASTER! preparedness and first aid manual provides families with instructional tips in 2-color format about what to think about and do before, during and after many types of emergencies and disasters, as well as how to administer basic first aid.
If more people would learn how to prepare themselves and their loved ones, it could alleviate some problems, fear and stress in the U.S. and Canada, plus lessen the burden on first responders.
Download a free 65-page portion of USFRA’s Family Preparedness guide and order the full interactive 284-page PDF for only $5 U.S. (~70% off) at USFRA.org and support our nation’s first responders, K9s and veterans.
For over 2 decades Fedhealth has discounted our disaster preparedness and first aid manual over 70% off the $14.99 list in bulk to agencies, businesses, nonprofits, volunteers, schools and others, but unfortunately freight costs are causing us to adjust price a bit to help offset the losses.
As of December 1, 2020 our 266-pageIT’S A DISASTER! paperback (either standard red books or custom printed ones in bulk) are $5 U.S. each.
We still provide FREE customization — either with peel & stick labels on our standard red books … or … you can personalize book covers and first 12 full color glossy pages in the print process on 1,000 or more copies.
And, if you need extra pages in front or back of custom printed books, we can add extra glossy pages, and per book price depends on quantity of extra pages and total custom books you’re doing. (But we’ll help all we can – just ask!)
And keep in mind our 284-page PDF ebook is only $5 each and comes with unlimited customization in bulk as low as $2 each.
Books and ebooks can be given away to employees, volunteers, members, students, customers and communities, and the customizable sole source products qualify for most every grant available and provide tons of match.

One thing this year’s coronavirus outbreak demonstrated was the use of digital products and services can help keep people connected and it’s an easy way to share educational information.
Of course during a grid down post-disaster scenario, digital data may be difficult to access through the cloud, web or cellular services, but technology is being used by all age groups more than ever before.
For over 2 decades we have been customizing our 266-page preparedness and first aid book and ebook in bulk to include local information and plans, preparedness or response messaging, or any other data that agencies, businesses, schools and organizations want included for their staff, volunteers and local communities.
Bulk paperbacks ($4.50 delivered each) and interactive PDF ebooks (as low as $2 each) also provide match for agencies and nonprofits, and proceeds benefit the U.S. First Responders Association.
Fedhealth and FSC are also developing custom USFRA book and ebook projects for communities around the country in case your agency, business or group would like to collaborate with us using grant funds and/or sponsorships.
Orders of 1,000 copies or more can change the entire book cover including the title, and the first 12 pages can be personalized with local data, maps, photos and more in full color on glossy paper. And if more custom pages are needed — just ask!
Smaller orders can get our standard red books and customize them with 1 to 4 labels per book. Red books can be shipped within 24 hours anytime from our Oregon warehouse and labels will ship from Texas.
Learn how to order paperbacks (or our ebook in PDF) or call Fedhealth at 520-907-2153 especially if you’d like to jump in on this print and get custom books for your staff, customers and local communities.

We have been in the process of updating our customizable preparedness and first aid manual and plan to include Augmented Reality on some topics (e.g. CPR, Stop The Bleed, etc.) so readers can view videos and data about procedures using their smartphone or tablet.
And since our printer does AR, it would be a great complement to our custom book projects filled with ads that pay for books (and help fund our nation’s first responders.)
Augmented Reality can be used on print ads to increase engagement by…
Bringing a picture to life or adding video to the printed page;
Making content jump off the page with 3D objects and data;
Allowing people to interact directly with data, photos, games, shopping carts and websites;
Updating content, special promos, discounts and customer experiences without changing a printed trigger / ad.
Check out this short video demonstrating some AR ads:
We are exploring to determine if several topics in our book and ads would be best viewed using free apps such as Blippar, Layar, Zappar or others on smartphones or tablets … or maybe through a common AR viewer or platform that everyone could use with or without an app.
But our goal is to bridge the gap between traditional print and digital experiences to generate excitement and engagement between our readers, advertisers and whole communities.
We are soooo looking forward to stepping into tomorrow today so stay tuned and stay safe, j & B
