On-Demand Printing and Short Run Printing for Authors - Newton, MA

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 10, 2013

On-demand printing is taking over in publishing. New book copies can be printed with print-on-demand once an order for books is received.  This is also called digital printing. The price per unit is generally higher, but there are many advantages to using on-demand book printing.
The biggest advantage of on-demand or digital book printing is that the setup is faster and the costs are lower than offset printing.
With digital printing you no longer have to print and store large inventories of books which also keeps your costs down. Not having to keep large inventories cuts down on costs because you no longer have to deal with warehousing, handling, and shipping costs.  You also will cut down on waste due to unsold books.

Digital book printing is often used by subsidy printers, self-publishers, and by publishers who want to manage costs and for test marketing.

With a commercial offset book printer short run book printing is another option. Typical short runs are 1,000 books, but short run printing are quantities of anywhere from 11-5000. Short run printing is also relatively inexpensive per book and the price falls with larger size orders.

Self-publishers can use both types of printing. Print on demand allows you to keep books on hand in small quantities. Short run book orders in quantities of 1000 or more are perfect for single orders.

Short Run Book Printing – What is it for?

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Short-run book printing is the printing of fewer books, anywhere from 11 to 5000 copies, for less money. Short run books are the perfect option for authors and publishers who need fewer books fast, for those with smaller budgets, or for authors with smaller storage spaces.

Publishing companies who have books or authors in limited distribution, have orders to fulfill, or who want advanced copies of books will use short run book printing. Self-publishers will also often choose  short run printing for book signings and fairs, to re-stock inventory,  to have advance copies, or to have books available for marketing and promotions.

With the onset of digital book printing, where there is more flexibility in printing and editing, a huge demand has developed for short run books. With short run printing, self-published authors, traditional authors, and publishing companies now can get books printed with the  kind of print quality that used to only come from expensive, large scale commercial printers.

Whether you are a large scale publishing companies or an individual author, if you think short run books can fill your need, contact The Country Press.
