Presentation description:Much has been written about the benefits of print on demand and ultra short run printing for companies large and small, including reduced inventory investment, increased speed to market and the end of out-of-print titles. Although certainly valuable for these reasons, taking advantage of print on demand technology is a significant business decision that must be made on a title-by-title basis. So how do you decide if the move to digital printing is right for you and your company?
To help answer this question, BISG offered this 60-minute Webcast designed to introduce you to the possibilities and potential pitfalls of digital book printing, including print on demand and ultra short run. Our expert speakers uncovered:
- What do digital printing, print on demand and ultra short run printing mean?
- What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of digital printing?
- Which products work best with digital print technology?
- How are specific publishers using the technology today?
