Digital Book Production Explained

With print methods changing fast, it can be hard to keep up with the latest and best production opportunities. This course looks at the different digital print technologies and their applications, giving you a thorough understanding of the pros and cons of each and helping you to select the right method for your projects in the future.

Our courses focus on the practical application of knowledge. During the course you will spend time in the press-room and bindery, seeing first-hand how books are produced on digital presses.

All of our courses are designed in conjunction with a group of Production Directors from leading houses so that they focus on what you need to know. Each course contains a formal assessment recognised by many of the UK’s publishing houses. 

As the factories can be very noisy we limit the group to six people to ensure that you get the most out of the day. So book in advance to avoid disappointment.

This course will provide you with an overview of the different technologies available and how to select the right one for your project.

 

You will learn:

  • What is meant by short run printing?
  • How the economics of digital print works and publishing models?
  • How orders are generated and processed (EDI, ASR, OLO)
  • What you need to consider when creating files for digital print production
  • The different print technologies that are used to put “ink” on paper
  • The pros and cons of each of the different methods
  • What paper stocks are available for digital printing and considerations
  • What finishing and binding options are available for short run title
  • What other opportunities the technology makes available e.g. personalisation, customisation, printing closer to market

This course in run at CPI in Chippenham. Please note: travel and accommodation costs are not included in the ticket price.

Organiser

Book Industry Communication

BIC is an independent organisation set up and sponsored by the Publishers Association, Booksellers Association, the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals and the British Library to promote supply chain efficiency in all sectors of the book world through e-commerce and the application of best practice, standard processes and procedures. We have excellent relationships with all major standards bodies and we work closely with the Book Industry Study Group in the US.

BIC unites all sectors of the publishing industry, so whether you're a publisher, on-line retailer, "bricks & mortar" retailer, distributor, library (academic or public), wholesaler, digital partner, literary agent, conversion house, or any combination of these, we're here for you. We offer a "one stop shop" experience, impartial advice and support on anything & everything related to the Supply Chain (digital and/or physical) and we always love to hear from our members...and anyone who might like to become a member. Your feedback is invaluable to us.

We want to hear your ideas, what you're working on, what's challenging you right now, and what changes/developments/projects etc you think the industry might benefit from - so that we can work on your behalf to deliver solutions.

Finally, as an FYI: without neglecting the printed book world, BIC will now be focussing an increasing amount of its energy on work in the Digital Supply Chain.
