Digital Book Manufacturing Helps Solve Costly Inventory Builds
With the advent of digital manufacturing facilities in the book and manual production industry, inventories can be managed. No longer do publishers/authors need to warehouse large quantities of books with the hope that they will sell. Every day that a book sits on a warehouse shelf, it is costing the current owner money, storage costs, and the cost on the money that you have paid for the manufacturing of this unsold unit. When looking at manufacturing order quantities, look at how fast a title is going to be sold. Even if it were to sell over a specific time frame, such as a year, digital manufacturing is the most cost-effective way to manage your inventory costs.
