As we already got the minimum goal for the project we started the paperwork to become officially a publishing house. It's just simple paperwork but it's really helpful for the goals of the project.
Being a publishing house we can get a ISBN prefix that makes book stores feel safer when they order the books. Book shops experience issues when ordering books from self-publishers due to the lack of a publishing house supporting them. Publishing houses act as a point of trust that book shops and libraries can contact.
For us, being a publishing house helps us access book shops and, with that, markets all around the globe, making our contents more accessible for everyone.
Being a publishing house also reduces the price of the ISBNs and that helps us continue our activity in the future.
Apart from all the advantages it gives us, being officially declared as a publishing house is a way to state that the goal of the project is to last longer than the crowdfunding campaign and keep sharing knowledge in the long term.
