Are you wondering why the cost to produce your books has increased dramatically or why it’s taken longer to complete them over the past two years? Have you thought about how best to store your books and fulfill orders most effectively and what you could be doing differently? Do you know what options exist for small publishers to produce shorter print runs via high quality digital production with quick turnarounds that rival the quality of offset production? If you’re a Colorado based publisher and would like faster turn times via digital or offset production with reduced shipping costs, do you know you have an excellent option in your own backyard? How do you ensure enough margin on your book sales so you can give distributors and bookstores the discounts they require and still be profitable? Register now for the March 18th CIPA meeting to learn the answers to these questions and more when CIPA welcomes Tracy Groholski and Tina Campbell, the top leadership of Colorado’s Frederic Printing, a division of RR Donnelley, North America’s largest printer, will be our meeting’s guest presenters.
