Assistance through the process
Most publishing houses, both large and small, face similar risks and problems in their activities. These are usually problems connected to printing a small number of books, high costs of storage and distribution, returns, delayed inflow of receivables from the market.
Every printing house is glad to print medium and large editions.
The problem begins when you would like to print an edition of under 1000 books. Of course, there are plenty of good digital printers that’ll print even one paper book on demand. There are also self-publishing platforms helping to publish and sell books in paperback or hardcover, such as Amazon KDP.
However, when you need to produce a few hundred board books, then the problems start. The Chinese won’t come to your assistance. Besides, the transport costs would be very high.
European board book printers have a machine park aimed towards the production of larger editions. Small editions complicate the production process, more raw materials are needed to reset the production line, and the final product is expensive and often of low quality. On top of that, you have to wait for a gap in production.
And here we come to your assistance.
Don’t print to hold in stock!
Don’t create costly reserves, don’t allow books to deteriorate in the warehouse. Thanks to the use of digital printing, you can order exactly as many board books as you need to satisfy market demand. You maintain full cash flow and have as many board books as you need at a particular moment. And in case of need – we’ll quickly print more.

Each book has the chance to become a best-seller and achieve market success. However, it's worth trying first small edition as trial e.g. for salespeople, for sales networks. This will allow you to evaluate readers' reactions and you will be able to make the right decision on the target edition.
