Lightning Source is a subsidiary of Ingram Industries Inc., and a sister company to leading U.S. book wholesaler Ingram Book Group. The company is the leading printer and distributor of print-on-demand books. Originally incorporated in 1997 as Lightning Print Inc., the company is headquartered in La Vergne, Tennessee. Its UK operations are based in Milton Keynes.

Lightning Source has printed over 60,000,000 books for over 6,500 publishers around the world. The Lightning Source digital library holds over 600,000 books.

Lightning Source works with publishers, unlike print-on-demand service providers such as Lulu that also work directly with authors. The company prints books in any quantity, from as little as a single copy. It gives its customers access to the most comprehensive bookselling channel in the industry in both the United States and the United Kingdom, including distribution partners Ingram, Baker & Taylor,, Barnes & Noble, Gardners and Bertrams.
