Short run digital printing is a more cost-effective alternative for printing books with the quality of offset printing without the offset price. Short run printing is faster than traditional offset printing because it uses state-of-the-art technology and publishing software that doesn’t require the intricacy of setting up custom plates. This makes short run digital printing a great option for those with a tight schedule, because the job will usually take as little as 24 hours. Therefore, book copies can all be printed and delivered the next day.

Short run printing in Boston, MA offers superior quality that is typically as good as traditional offset printing. Each short run book can be completely customized. The unit costs of books decreases with every copy printed. With digital printing, remarkably detailed and colorful printed copies can be produced conveniently and affordably.

Short Run Digital Printing Lets You Produce Books Even with a Tight Budget and Schedule - Boston, MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 06, 2015

Short run printing in Boston, MA is generally done in digital formats. This means that printing cylinder plates do not need to be custom-made like they do for traditional offset printing. This reduces both the time and cost of printing.

Short Run Book Printing is Park of Every Books' Lifecycle

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 05, 2013

There have been great advances in short-run digital printing and print-on-demand  technologies over the last decade. The manufacturers of high-volume digital presses have made huge improvements in print quality, formats, speed, and workflow. Short run printing solutions have can support both monochrome and color book printing and have the ability to customize and personalize—all with the speed and quality required by publishers and customers. These developments have changed how publishers assess the life cycle of a book, and they come at a good time. Gone are the days when one large offset print run can cover demand for a book over its entire life.

In the past, digital printing was only used “for extending the life of a title in the long tail, now titles are candidates for digital print at almost every stage. Titles are often set up for digital at the same time as the initial print run, so if a bookstore’s initial stocking order is short, additional copies can be produced quickly to meet demand. Because the content setup and transaction costs for digital book printing are very low, print costs at every stage of a book’s life cycle are economical. And keeping books in print longer is an extra benefit in the digital age: E-book sales are actually driving sales for printed books in the midlist, especially in the nonfiction categories.

Digital printing has matured to become a regular part of the production mix.

In the case of short run printing individual orders might be for 20 or more copies and are typically for inventory replenishment. When a customer orders several titles from a publisher or distributor, but sales forecasts for some of the titles are unavailable, short run book printing can reduce the risks of overstocking. Turnaround times on these orders are typically five to 10 days.

In the final stages of a book’s life cycle, when sales are infrequent and most orders are for single copies, a publisher can place the title on a print-to-order platform. Large libraries of out-of-print and otherwise hard-to-find titles have been aggregated and made available for sale online, creating new opportunities from older titles as well. And the inventories for these titles are entirely virtual, using print-to-order technologies. With the advances in both color toner and ink-jet printing, titles can be produced whose quality is comparable to that of the original editions, which were made using offset printing. In this case, the new printing systems provide a new lifecycle, when before there wasn’t one at all.

A key reason digital printing is now in the manufacturing mix is that current digital printing platforms have greatly flattened the cost curve across order quantities, and publishers that consider the total cost of ownership are rapidly taking advantage of these technologies. A new paradigm is emerging in which, rather than relying on large print runs, publishers order fewer copies of each title and then replenish their inventory more frequently, without increasing their expenses, thereby reducing inventory risks and conserving cash. And because of automated workflows, smaller publishers and distributors can take full advantage of digital printing. With the ability to economically produce very small book runs to address niche markets, customize content, and meet demand at all stages of a title’s lifecycle, publishers have more tools than ever before to address the needs of their customers in the new book-buying paradigms.
