Newsletter Archive: Book Printers and Publishers August 2014
We’re sure you’ve noticed many changes occurring in the book publishing market. Some say it’s in a state of digital disruption. Overall print volumes are declining, print runs are getting smaller, and there’s continual pressure to lower unit costs.
As publishers look to book manufacturers to help them better manage inventories, the challenge has been to find the right technology to achieve the quality, speed, flexibility, and affordability needed to thrive in this evolving market. Many independent and self-publishers are turning to on-demand technology to save money, save space and minimize the risk of returns. As a result, some experts expect digital book printing unit volume to grow 15% per year over the next five years.
To help evaluate the options available, We think you’ll find the webinar ON-DEMAND IS IN DEMAND FOR BOOKS quite insightful. It discusses emerging trends in book production, perspectives from both independent book publishers and book manufacturers, and the results from the most recent BISG publisher and e-book buyer surveys. We believe it will offer some valuable ideas on how to grow your revenue and profit as this market is transformed.
