How Do PBC Fairs Work?


What is included with a PBC Book Fair?
  • Free Set-Up & Take-Down of PBC Book Fair Materials
    You provide clean configured tables; we provide the rest. Includes linens, category signage, displays for books and sidelines, table talkers, and most importantly all the labor. Most PBC Fairs are fully set-up in under 2 hours, and taken down in just 1 hour.
  • A Great Selection of Books
    All publishers are represented in our diverse selection of age-appropriate, trending themes, new books & more! Plus, most books are 20-60% off the retail price.
  • Marketing Materials
    Fill-In Distributable Flyers, posters for your halls, commercials for school announcements, book trailer playlists to generate interest and add excitement, and more!
  • Our Customer Service Promise
    We want you to have the best Book Fair possible and we strive to provide you with the tools and materials you need. We are excited to provide quality products at great prices for your students. We are always here to answer your questions. We know that you’ll be pleased with the price, service, selection, and ease of operations that a PBC Book Fair offers.
Why should I pick PBC for my next Book Fair?

If you are ready for a different kind of Book Fair, one that emphasizes service and selection, PBC might be a good fit for you.

Our Book Fairs feature a wide variety of books at discounted prices, your school earns 20% of your net sales, with NO MINUMUMS REQUIRED! Plus, we handle the Set-Up and Take-Down of all PBC Fair materials for you.

Do you have an online Book Fair Option?

We are not currently offering Virtual Book Fairs.

Are my dates available?

Ask Us! Popular weeks (such as parent-teacher conference week) go fast, and the only way to know if the week you want is available is to ask.
Email bookfairs@ristorantipordenone.net today!

Do you have cases?

We introduced rolling cases in the 2019-2020 season! While most PBC Fairs are Table-Top Only or Table-Top & Case Combo Fairs, we are very flexible and want to work with you to maximize your available space.

If you don't have enough tables available for us to use, ask us about borrowing some PBC tables for your Fair. (It's free!)

If space is an issue, ask us about our small Fair options!

How much does my school/PTO/library earn?

You will receive 20% of your net sales (Pre-Tax). A Book Fair Sales Summary and Credit Certificate will be issued 4-6 weeks after the close of your Fair.

Is the 20% back cash or credit?

You can choose how to receive and spend your earnings.

Warehouse Credit: This is the best way to get the most out of your earnings!
Stretch your earnings as far as possible by coming in to shop! Our Book Fair Warehouse is open year-round and has a wide variety of books in-stock for 20-60% off retail prices every day. We are located at the AZ 143 and University Drive in Phoenix.

3418 S. 48th St. #305 | Phoenix, AZ 85040 | M-F 10am-5pm or by appointment

Can’t visit the Warehouse, contact us at bookfairs@ristorantipordenone.net for other options.

Cash Back: We can issue your school/organization/institution a check for the amount of credit. If you are paying with a PO, we can apply your earnings as a credit toward your invoice for speedy access to your funds.

CombinationYou can also choose a combination of Cash Back and Warehouse Credit, if you would prefer.

Restrictions Apply:
All Credit expires 6 months from date of issue.
Warehouse Credit is good for in-stock PBC Warehouse items ONLY!! (No online or special orders)
Cash Back is available for 4 weeks from date of issue. For PO Fairs, Cash Back is applied as an invoice credit by default. For PO Fairs choosing Cash Back after an invoice is issued, credit checks will be sent after PBC receives payment from your district.

All Fairs are required to fill in Daily Sales Summary Sheets at the end of each day of sales. Failure to provide properly filled out hard copies of the required Book Fair paperwork may result in the forfeit of part or all of the earned Book Fair Credit.

If you see books at the Fair that you would like, write it on your How I Want to Spend My Credit Form and we will pack and send them to you. Please DO NOT remove books from the Fair.

Do you offer Spring BOGO Fairs or other incentives if we host 2 Book Fairs in one school year?

No, we do not. With a few exceptions, almost every title on a PBC Book Fair is discounted from the retail price. We want every child to come to the Book Fair and be able to walk away with a book, no matter what time of year it is.

I want a specific book or series. Will it be at the Fair?

We do not guarantee specific titles will be at our Fairs. What we do promise is to strive to bring you a great selection that will have something for everyone.
However, it can’t hurt to ask! If the item is available at the Book Fair Warehouse, we will be happy to include it.

I am having a PBC Book Fair soon, are there any online tools available to me?

Yes! Visit the Online Resource Center by clicking on "Current Fair Coordinators" in the left bar menu. If you need the password, email us at bookfairs@ristorantipordenone.net.
