Short Run Book Printing Advantages

Short run printing is one of the most sought after printing services today. It does not replace offset printing, but short run printing is a very valuable option.

Here are some of the advantages of short run printing:

Save on printing cost
With short run book printing you do not need to go through the tedious process of creating plates, color separation, film stripping and the like. This allows you to print your materials without paying for the materials mentioned above.

Print only what you need
Short run printing allows you to place orders for small quantities of books at an affordable price. Also, when printing short run, you can specify the number of prints you want. This means that you will never print anything excess again.

Faster turnaround
Short run book printing allows you to save time and allows your books to be printed with fast turnaround. When printing in short run, colors are sprayed directly on top of the paper and then coated with an aqueous finish. This makes the ink dry almost instantly without smudging.

It gives you options when publishing your books
Book publishers and authors are the ones who benefits most from having short run prints. Authors can now publish their books even with a limited budget since you can specify the number of prints that you want. Also publishers can now have books printed whenever an order comes in. All they have to do is store a digital copy of that book in their database.
