Digital printing is the modern way of printing books that enable writers to make copies at large quantities in a short span of time. Authors will order copies of their books for pre-sales or book tours or an event in which the actual demand for the product will depend on the printing company who will be realistic to print the book ordered and pass on to a third party service provider for delivery and distribution. With digital printing, it gives support right upfront to self-publishing of new books.
Many newbie authors are using digital printing methods through the print on demand process because of the moderate page count, black and white text, regular paper size etc. With digital printing, the quality of an average black-and-white book printed on demand is indistinguishable from an offset print. Doing this process, the printer stores normally separate digital files for the book’s cover and interior test which these files are then imaged using toner, rather than ink. In addition there is digital printing equipment that is being used to produce an entire book color cover and all in just a span of minutes. The newbie writers in self-publishing their books use print on demand as a convenient distribution strategy that will allow them to make their work available in markets making an upfront investment or dealing with the logistics of shipping, distribution and storage.
Ultimately, the print orders are fulfilled only after a sale is made using digital printing technology. Digital printing is basically more favorable on the small quantity of books to print. It is where the print runs are very short or where there is no need for an inventory of books, saving on warehousing and shipping. This creates a self-publishing phenomenon that depends entirely on digital printing through print on demand distribution.
