Benefits of Print on Demand and Short Run Printing – Boston, MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 22, 2014

With the development of digital printing, short run printing is now an easy possibility. If you want to react to a market condition, you no longer have to rely on off-set printing for your printed book. On-demand printing can run 1 book at a time for you. Print shops are adding on-demand component to their operations to address the shorter run requirements of their customers and authors. Even large institutions like university presses and other academic publishers have also adopted this new digital printing technology.

In terms of cost, it has been found to be quite cheaper compared to the traditional offset printing for the short run. Since you are doing small run, adjusting the content is pretty easy to do through digital printing by simply changing the file and reprinting.

To further promote POD, waste is minimized. If there is a mistake on an off-set run, running new plates can be expensive. By printing only what you require, you are also saving the environment. You will not be throwing a large amount of printed materials in the dumpster when the original is changed or updated. It reduces to cost of waste and preserves the environment.

New opportunities abound with digital technology. For instance, individual authors who want to publish their own work can now have the ability to do it themselves. Short run book publishing is easy for any author that would like to produce a book or a business that wants to publish a book for their prospects and customers. In addition, the small print runs can always be published when needed.

The most important thing today is the on-demand book printing needs to be good. Digital brings with it the ability to do many creative things.

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.
