Order print on demand books online
Online book printing is now an established – and respected – publishing practice, used by independent and traditional publishers alike. Print on demand books offer the solution to a number of publishing challenges – here are a few aspects and advantages as to why you should choose this option for your online book printing requirements:
The perfect solution for short print runs
Print on demand books are the perfect solution for any books where there is a relatively low demand at any one time, but are required over a longer period of time. Educational reference books are a good example of titles that are periodically in demand, perhaps driven by syllabuses, but only in low numbers.
Flexible book printing to meet demand
If certain titles experience ‘spikes’ in demand on an irregular timeframe, then print on demand books offer a flexible solution for providing the relevant availability as and when required. There may sometimes be a big ‘spike’ when big numbers of copies of a specific book are needed in a short space of time, followed by periods of when the book is not requested and availability drops.
Print on demand online book printing caters any demand ‘curve’. This allows for readers to always receive a new, freshly-printed copy rather than one that has been gathering dust in a warehouse over a period of time, and at the same time enables publishers to record sales with a fast turnaround time.
Storing physical copies can become costly
Print on demand online book printing has significant advantages where storage is concerned. Storing physical copies of books that are not currently in demand becomes costly – and occupies space that can could be eminently more valuable than the books it currently contains!
What often happens with unsold volumes of books is that they end up being pulped – in itself a waste of the original materials and production, and a potentially expensive overhead both financially and, increasingly important, environmentally.
With print on demand books there is no need for storage – and therefore no need for the wasteful book pulping to occur.
Digital printing techniques means there’s no compromise on quality
In earlier times, people may have regarded print on demand book productions to be of an inferior quality to traditional print runs, but advances and improvements in digital printing techniques and materials have bridged that gap.
Online book printing can now be used to produce books in black and white or colour, with soft or hard covers and in any quantities, with a high-end quality finish.
