Edwards Brothers Opens New Digital Print Center In California

Friday, September 16, 2011

Press release from the issuing company

Printed Books Can Now Reach 92% of U.S. Population in 1–2 Days
Ann Arbor, MI - Edwards Brothers announced the opening of a new digital print center in Oxnard, California, making it the tenth digital print center owned or operated by Edwards Brothers.  The center will print primarily soft cover books and journals.
The move is part of Edwards Brothers' EB Print LocalSM program that allows publishers to print closest to each book's final destination, whether that is a warehouse, a retail outlet, or the end user.  Printing locally saves both time and money on shipping and reduces the carbon footprint of each book shipped.
"Publishers want to get books where they need to go as quickly and cheaply as possible, so offering them more local market options has been and continues to be our ongoing goal," said John Edwards, President and CEO of Edwards Brothers.  "With this new center, we'll now be able to get a book into the hands of 92% of the U.S. population within 1–2 days after manufacturing, usually without paying more than ground rates.  That's a pretty powerful draw for a lot of publishers."
Edwards Brothers opened its first digital print center in 1997 and now has digital centers located in Michigan, North Carolina, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, New Jersey, California, Canada, and the United Kingdom.  Edwards Brothers is also part of the gps Global Print SolutionsSM worldwide distributed print alliance.  Between its domestic print facilities and the gps alliance, Edwards Brothers can offer publishers a one-stop solution for printing around the world, with one order, one file, and one invoice.
