Print demand is today a major trend in the book market. Practical and cheap, it has found its niche, profiting from the rise in self-publishing, the move by some publishing houses to revive their back catalogue, and in particular from the need to reduce stock.
Apart from just manufacture, our teams have developed a set of solutions so that you can print a single book simply and cheaply, in black and white or colour.

Print demand suppliers, like Lightning Source, maintain databases of books on behalf of their publisher clients. Publishers submit books to the print on demand supplier (PODS) in the form of two files for each book: one digital file for the book interior and one digital file for the cover.
When the files first arrive they are logged into the PODS’s system, examined for technical errors, and a proof copy of the book is created for the publisher to review. Once the publisher signs off on the proof, the book is listed by the PODS throughout its distribution channels including booksellers, other offline and online retailers, chain stores, library suppliers, and in some cases exporters.
Advantages for the publishers include:
eliminates the need to keep books in inventory;
allows books without substantial sales to stay in print;
vastly reduces the investment needed to maintain a large backlist;
eliminates the waste and expense of pulping thousands of unsold books.
Disadvantages for the publishers are:
digitially printed books cost more per unit than books printed offset;
digital printing is not efficient for books that will sell in volume;
digitial printing’s quality and flexibility of formats is not as good as offset printing.
