We will handle this exactly the same way as the Magic Items 2 Kickstarter campaign. Print rewards for those in the U.S.; those outside of the U.S. who want print will find the book (later) in the GURPS On Demand program if the Kickstarter campaign is successful:

Well I hope, as some who is stuck using the POD, that you eventually find a better POD service for the EU/UK. It is definitely lacking in quality that I have come to associate with SJG over the last twenty years.

We are unlikely to change at this time. No service has offered the simplicity and convenience of Amazon's program.

If we see a significant spike in sales of the GURPS line, then we'll explore new options.

Phil, do you know whether SJG books offered on Amazon Japan are part of the same sort of PoD service?

I'm referring to GURPS/DFRPG books specifically. For example, the most recent DFRPG Kickstarter book, Magic Items 2, is offered on Amazon Japan, as are books like DFRPG Companion and GURPS paperbacks in general. But each has only the most rudimentary info: price, author, editor (SJG), format (paperback), the English marketing copy blurb, little more.

Since all (or most, anyway) are listed as available through Prime and mention no specific seller/shipper, I'm guessing that means PoD, not an imported copy. But I see no mention of any PoD service, either, and don't know what a purchase will bring in - for example, whether that Magic Items 2 is in color or not.

If you know, please tell! And if not, well, maybe I'll have to take a chance on Magic Items 2 and see what Amazon sends me.

Any of the books listed here -- http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/ondemand/ -- should be available from any Amazon site that offers print-on-demand services. We select the global option, meaning that Amazon makes the books available wherever they offer their KDP program.

Yep! And one week to go until the project closes. The BackerKit survey will offer different add-ons, so this is a good opportunity to grab some Dungeon Fantasy releases, dice, and other items.
