We’re sure you have noticed that book production is changing with shorter run lengths and on-demand publishing becoming more the norm than the niche. Recent advancements in digital color production inkjet technology, workflow software, and integrated finishing options enable book printers to offer a smarter, cost saving approach to book production. This approach helps to decrease the number of unsold books while cutting back on storage expenses and makes it profitable to print books on-demand with run lengths as small as 1–500.
Interested to know how other companies made the decision to move to inkjet technology for on-demand book printing? What were the transition steps and what did they learn along the way? What advice would they give to other companies when considering inkjet technology?
Answers to these questions were discussed during the recent Inkjet Summit held April 27–29, 2015 in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. As a keynote sponsor for this event, Canon Solutions America presented a series of case studies covering various market segments. The presentation we thought you would be interested in viewing is INKJET SUMMIT 2015 BOOK AUTOMATION. It summarizes why a number of companies made the decision to move to production inkjet technology for on-demand book printing. Their investigations led them to completely automate the production process all the way to the binder with less paper waste, lower running costs compared to toner-based systems, great color consistency, flexible integrated finishing options for enhanced productivity, and a hands-free workflow.
Discover the new possibilities an automated inkjet workflow could bring to your business. After reviewing the presentation, we’d be happy to discuss any questions you may have.
