Education Book

Streamline your supply chain and boost business
opportunities with HP digital printing.

As education book sales decline, publishers are increasingly turning to digital printing to gain efficiencies and safeguard profits. Digital enables any quantity, from one to thousands, to be produced efficiently and cost effectively. By allowing economical low-volume titles, test marketing, teachers’ editions, end-of-life reprints, custom textbooks, and district-level versioning, digital printing offers compelling opportunities to boost profitability.

Decentralize production, for a shorter, more efficient supply chain
  • Reduce warehousing, transportation and delivery costs by printing shorter runs, in locations closer to you and your customers.
Reduce turnaround time and meet tough academic schedules
  • With no make-ready processes, you can go from order to finished books faster.
  • Extend the selling season of customized books without needing to “rip and rebind”.
Optimize production volumes relative to sell-through rates throughout a title’s lifecycle
  • Match production to short-term sales forecasts, for reduced overstocks and under-stocks.
  • Print new titles in low quantities to evaluate likely demand.
  • Produce end-of-life reprints in small numbers to cost-effectively meet dwindling demand and keep books in print indefinitely.

HP delivers the digital printing solutions you need for more efficient, competitive and successful educational book printing. With HP Indigo Digital Presses and HP High-speed PageWide Web Presses, you get outstanding high quality with exceptionally accurate colors, wide choices of papers and formats, and versatile finishing options.
