Short Run Book Printing Allows Printing on a Limited Budget

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Publishers and authors are still being affected by the economy. As a result, book printing estimates need to be better than ever. How many copies do you need? There is a solution to this constant question. Short Run Book Printing.

Short run book printing is a new, and basically risk free solution to printing the ‘right’ number of books.  Short run book printing allows authors and publishers to print a limited number of books; print only what is needed, from 11-5000.

You still need to consider multiple factors when deciding on the quantity of books to have printed, but with short run books you have much more flexibility. If you print too few, it is easy to print more.

One of the biggest advantages of short run printing, of course, is a smaller book printing cost when you are having fewer books printed. It also allows you the opportunity to gauge the response of the readers before ordering too many books. Therefore, less money is at stake.

Short run printing lets you control your budget and lets you edit the books after printing if you find any missed errors. Additionally, short run printing takes less time because you are printing fewer books. For more information on short run printing, contact The Country Press.

For fulfilling order obligations, for a smaller inventory or to meet budgetary demands, short run book printing is the best and right option.

Short run printing is a better choice than traditional, large scale book printing. Why? With short run book printing, you don’t need a deal with a publishing company. Short run book printing allows you to print only the books you need. If you have a smaller budget, smaller storage space, have a small order to fill, or unsure of how the book will sell, short run book printing can accommodate all of those concerns.

Commercial printers make money on the quantity of books they print. Therefore, they are not interested in printing smaller quantities of books in order to meet your needs.

More authors, publishing companies, universities, and trades people are interested in short run printing. For many authors, using a commercial publishing company means the difference between printing or not printing their book, but short run book printers give you another option.  When you have a smaller distribution channel short run book printers are perfect for you.
