'CreateSpace is a DBA of On-Demand Publishing LLC, part of the Amazon group of companies
CreateSpace was originally founded as CustomFlix Labs, Inc. and BookSurge Inc. CustomFlix launched in 2002 when four colleagues decided to make widespread distribution easier for independent filmmakers—they started CustomFlix, a DVD on-Demand company. BookSurge was launched in 2000 by a small group of writers who wanted to create opportunities for authors to not only publish their work, but to also retain their content rights and sales profits. BookSurge grew to support leading publishers and independent authors, offering complete self-publishing, on-demand printing, and online distribution services.
In 2005, BookSurge and CustomFlix were both acquired by Amazon.com. CustomFlix's name was changed to CreateSpace in 2007. In October of 2009, due to the harmonies that would be created in the businesses, the CreateSpace and BookSurge brands merged under the CreateSpace name to become the publishing and manufacturing on-demand leader for independent content creators, publishers, film studios, and music labels.'
