Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 22, 2014

With the development of digital printing, short run printing is now an easy possibility.

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.

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, January 31, 2012

A “self-publisher” is an individual who is engaged in the publishing of their own printed material. Recently there has been an increase in authors who want to self publish. This increase in self publishing has meant that there is now a huge demand for short run printing.

Commercial printers who do short runs allow the self publisher to save a huge amount of money.

Contact Country Press, Inc., we can support the self publisher through the printing and the proofing of their book.
