Digital book production provides a cost-effective way for publishers to get short runs
of books printed. Wasteful over-printing is avoided. Bookstore returns of unsold books
are reduced. The environmental costs of over-production and the energy costs of unnecessary
transport are lessened. Beyond these quantitative benefits, digital production provides a
positive service to society by making it economical for publishers to keep their entire
catalog of titles in print forever.
IBT’s quality is unmatched among digital book manufacturers but it is not achieved at the
expense of customization. The unique combination of quality and customization, made possible
by the most experienced workforce in the business making use of the latest technology, sets
us apart as the unquestioned gold standard in the field.
"Keeping Books in Print" was our motto twenty years ago and it remains at the heart
of our corporate mission today. Print on demand production – production of as few as a single
copy at a time, driven by end user demand and requiring immediate turnaround – was a natural
extension of that philosophy. We have been producing print on demand books for more than a decade.
Our growing distribute and print network, including IBT satellite installations on-site at major
publishers and book distributors around the world, is the realization of a shared vision for the
ultimate in inventory management. Sending electronic files to a manufacturing site as close to
the end user as possible further reduces transportation costs and sidesteps the international
shipping delays that are becoming a way of life in today’s international political climate.
A single file, sent to multiple locations simultaneously, results in identically produced books
adhering to the same quality standards as developed at our flagship location in Troy, New York.
If you are looking for a simple, efficient system to manage the print life of your title - from
initial print runs of up to 2,000 copies, down to single unit print on demand production at
end-user locations around the world – IBT is your answer.
