Short Run Book Publishing Supports Amateur Authors and New Writers

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 18, 2018
Country Press Short Run Book Publishing in Boston, MA

Recently, there has been an increasing number of amateur authors who are interested in self-publishing their manuscripts in smaller quantities. Short run book publishing has made this possible. Now, self-publishers can release their literary work gradually and according to their budget and according to demand. This means they no longer need to invest a large amount of money to print a large number of copies without the assurance of selling out.

Short run book printers provide leeway for new writers to publish fewer books so they can test whether its going to sell. Amateur writers now have an opportunity to test the waters without overspending with larger publishing companies that only print large quantities. New writers can have their manuscripts turn printed with as few as eleven copies as a minimum run.

Short run printing motivates amateur writers to realize their dream of printing a book and encourage self-publishers to pursue their ambitions. Contact Country Press Printing for cost-effective book printing and publishing services.

Digital Book Printing is a Cost-Effective Mode of Meeting Demand and Deadlines - Boston, MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Digital printing in Boston, MA provides an effective means of producing large or small quantities of books quickly at a competitive price. Digital printing allows you to meet demands and deadlines. It gets the job done right, on time, with a faster turnaround.

Unlike older printing technologies, digital printing does not require the upfront expense of plate-making nor is time-consuming set-up necessary. This means that there is a lower unit cost per book printing run. Digital printing offers more convenience because it allows you to print books in smaller quantities in very high quality, for less. As a result, replenishing book inventories as needed based on demand will not be a problem.

Printed reading materials will always be around. The only thing that will change and evolve is how they will be prepared, and printed. Digital printing proves that this change is constant. By the inevitable convergence of multiple digital technologies, this digital printing will continue to give authors and publishers the edge to ensure a higher and faster return on investment.

Print the exact quantity of books you need when you need them. To determine the best book printing solution, contact the Country Press Inc.

Short Run Book Printing to Save Money and Space – Newton, Boston

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 14, 2014

There are many situations where a publisher or author only wants a limited number of books printed. When only a small amount of books are needed, to fulfill orders, for marketing, to handle back orders or for book signings or other marketing events, short run book printing is the avenue of choice.

Traditional publishing means thousands of copies of books will be printed. With traditional publishing, storage, initial cost and demand all come into play. For smaller budgets, smaller storage areas and for smaller demand, short run printing can meet your book printing needs.

New authors, smaller university courses, and often larger publishing houses cannot often afford to choose traditional publishing leading to thousands of copies of books. A short run book printer can help.

For a traditional publisher, the major cost is the setup cost when the printing plates are prepared. Generally, this is really the only cost associated with traditional printing, so if you have a large amount of books to be printed, the cost per book reduces with offset printing. However, if you need anywhere from 11-5000 books, the choice is short run book printing. While the cost per book is higher, the cost for the order is much less, because you can order fewer books.

Through short run book printing you can order a limited number of printed books. This is the better choice for many people and organizations, including churches, publishers, authors, universities and municipalities.

Short-Run Book Printing is Green Printing

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 12, 2013

One of the main strikes against traditional book printing is that books have traditionally been over-printed. In other words, more copies of a book are typically printed than will ever be purchased by consumers, meaning a lot of paper gets wasted. This model for manufacturing books is wasteful and inefficient.

Responsible book printing companies have started offering short-run book printing services. Rather than forcing publishers to purchase huge orders so they can keep their unit price as low as possible, some printers are offering the ability to print only what’s needed, when it’s needed. With short-run printing, authors and publishers print off books when they are needed, thereby reducing the waste of unused materials. This technique can lead to a huge reduction in the impact book printing has on the environment. Some short run book printers also help authors and the publishing community transfer files into eBook format, giving everyone a chance at publishing an eBook along with their printed work.

Short Run Book Printers for A Smaller Distribution Channel

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, July 18, 2013

If you are an author, self-published author, or a publishing house that needs a book with faster turn- around than traditional printing can offer, choose short run book printing. For advance copies, or for a smaller amount of books to fulfill order obligations, book signings, book fairs, or to use as giveaways, short run book printing is your best option.

Commercial printers or publishers make their money on printing large quantities of books. But rarely can a new author or self-published author afford such a commitment. Short run books gives you the option of printing a smaller number of books at one time. Printing smaller quantities may cause the books to be more expensive per book, but with short run printing, you can print anywhere from 11 to 5000 copies. This makes short run printing very economical.  

Today, there are more self-published authors than ever before. Therefore, more authors and trades people are interested in short run book printing for promoting their books.  In fact, for many, the option of short run book printing often means the difference between printing or not printing your book. Short run book printers are the solution for those with a smaller distribution channel.

Short Run Book Printers - When You Need Fewer Professionally Printed Books

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 07, 2012

When you order a small amount of printed books from a professional printing company, you are placing a short run book order. Short run book printing is essential to self publishers so they can promote their book and sell their book.

Publishing companies generally only print 5,000 copies or more at a time in order to make a profit. Therefore, it is important to find a publishing company that specializes in short run books.
For self publishers, or for advance copy books, short run book printing is relied upon to bring books to market. Short run book printing allows for more inventory over print on demand at a price that a self publisher can afford.

Short Run Book Printing Helps Authors Promote Their Books

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Short run book printing is the perfect way for authors and publishing companies to promote their books. Short run books are perfect for self promotion: print from 1-1000 of your newly published books and use them as giveaways, for book signings, and send them to reviewers.

Through the Taleist survey of self-published authors, those authors who want to succeed, however they are published, must be willing to do at least some of their own promotion.

Indeed, the Taleist survey of self-published authors showed that book promotion does work:

“The authors who did best, however, did everything except pay for reviews: They gave away review copies, submitted their books to book review bloggers and the mainstream press, sought popular reviewers on Amazon and asked their readers through email lists etc.”

The way to sell you book is to get reviews; you get reviews when people read your book. This means promoting your book. Short run book printing allows you get it in front of friends and family, book bloggers and reviewers, and even random strangers on the internet.

Whether you do that via social media, or emails, or giveaways, you have to promote your new book. There’s just no way round it.

Huge Demand for Short Run Book Printing

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 03, 2012

Short-run printing applications don’t just apply to books. Short run printing can be applied to other applications such as catalogs, posters and packages, children’s books, text books and municipalities.

Self publishing has meant that there is now a huge demand for short run printing. With the Country Press, self publishers and publishers now have access to the kind of print quality that only comes from the equipment of large scale commercial printers.

Short run printing is best for publishers who have a small distribution channel. Short run printing means that publishing houses can order just a dozen copies. If those books sell well, order more.  A short run book printer can make the world of difference to publishing companies, because being able to order a short run book can mean the difference between printing and not printing the book. When a publisher can order less than a thousand units, publishing companies save a huge amount of money.
