Survey: How Will Digital Book Printing Evolve?
There’s no denying that digital book printing has left its mark on the book publishing industry. The inexpensive, short-run printing process has allowed publishers to revive backlist and out-of-print book sales. It’s created a viable way for small and independent publishers to publish print books. And it’s made a huge impact on warehousing costs, reducing the need for publishers to carry massive inventory. But will these trends continue to gain momentum in the future? Could digital printing and on-demand technology eventually replace other printing methods like offset?
Tell us what you think in the “State of The Digital Book Printing Survey.” The goal of the 8-question survey is to capture concrete data about the industry’s outlook on digital book printing and how it will expand in the future. The questions are aimed at book publishers, manufacturers, and other industry suppliers.
Book Business and Printing Impressions will dive into the results of the survey at the upcoming Digital Book Printing Conference in New York Cityon October 27th. Industry experts including IT Strategies’ Marco Boer, who is chairing the event, will examine the survey’s results, offer their own insights and commentary, and invite attendees to share their perspectives on the future of digital book printing and its impact on the publishing industry.
