Country Press bound galleys in Newton, MA

Bound galleys function as the closest thing to the authors’ final draft. They are printed for review from prominent editors and proofreaders before being officially published as books. Copies of the book at this stage serve as both evaluation copies and as initial promotional copies.

As evaluation copies, all the writing requirements that make up a successful book are usually met. Before reaching this level, it is normal practice for a book project to pass through numerous checks and consultations in the form of initial drafts and manuscripts. Content at this point may be complete, but bound galleys as advance promotional copies must now emphasize appearance and digital book printing aspects.

Marketing your book involves producing quality bound galleys in Newton, MA. It is at this level where copies of book are bound and presented to simulate as finished products minus the final book cover. High-end digital book printing is the only way to achieve this.

Which is Better, Offset Printing or Digital Printing

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Decisions you make now can influence decisions down the road. As an author, you must start making the right choices and decisions early on in the printing and book conception process. After creation, one of the next decisions you have to make is regarding the printing and reprinting in Boston, MA of your book. The most common choices for printing in the publishing industry either falls on offset printing or on digital printing.

The breakthrough in paper, plate-making materials, and photo-lithography opened doors for offset printing at the advent of the twentieth century. There are cases in which print on demand (POD) are not the best choice, such as when reproducing a high definition copy of an art photography or painting, or any visual arts. Nor can automated equipment handle books with inserts in which cloth bookmarks are sewn to the binding or when a section of photos is inserted into the books during production. Also, offset printing is best to print any size or shape of book on various types of paper.

Digital printing in Boston, MA has become a favorite method of book printing as it has been the catalyst for the birth and growth of self-publishing. It is most often seen as the future of the publishing industry considering that it enables books to continue to be printed indefinitely based on demand. The joint force of computer-operated copying machine and bindery equipment make printing production more efficient. Through a simple request or command, the files are printed faster than off-set printing.

Off-set vs. Digital

The major difference of off-set printing and digital printing is that the latter is designed to create a copy of a book one at a time while the former produces books in stages. Off-set printing only work effectively when producing many copies of the book at once. This is one reason that digital printing comes into play when printing on demand is required.

Off-set printing is still used for the majority of books today, particularly for a very high volume of books to produce and reproduce for the mass market. However, larger publishers now are gradually switching to digital printing to save money, especially when there is no need to keep an inventory of books or when print runs are short.

How to Decide which is the Perfect Option for a Printing Project – Lakeville, MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 21, 2014

The advent of digital printing has brought technical advancements, providing more options and modifications in conventional commercial printing. But it has also brought a dilemma to people who are in the printing and publishing industry. Understanding the pro's and con's of modern and traditional printing processes helps in deciding what to choose given specific conditions and anticipated results.

Offset printing is known for its high volume commercial printing capacity, where the content to be printed gets ink from ink rollers while the non-printing area remains ink-free. But because of digital printing, all mechanical procedures of conventional printing is eliminated for a faster output, particularly in short run printing. So, which is better?

Knowing what the advantages of these two alternatives for commercial printing can help in judging which is better.

When it comes to faster turnaround, accurate proofing, and customization, there is no doubt that digital printing beats offset printing. It offers more accurate counts with less mistakes and fewer variations. Digital printing also provides variable data printing features where changes can be made even on each piece while the printing process is on-going.

Cost-effectiveness of both options depends on the quantity that needs to be printed. Since unit cost is indirectly proportional to quantity, then short run printing can be more cost-effective with digital printing while larger loads are likely to cost less with offset printing. Many modern offset presses now use computer-to-plate systems so to not be outdated compared to digital printing. Thus, offset printing could still be a better bet for quality and cost-effectiveness for large volume printing jobs.

So before you choose digital printing or offset printing, consider factors such as colors, customization, features, printing media, proofing, and turnaround. For more information on printing and publishing, check out the Country Press.
