Working the Document LifeCycle – When to Move a Job From Offset to Digital


Sponsored by Océ North America

Digital printing processes allow the document lifecycle to mirror the product lifecycle bell curve. For example, smaller volumes of marketing collateral may be required during product introduction, higher volumes during the growth and maturity stages, and smaller volumes again as product sales moderate. Book publishers can choose a short run for a promotional tour, higher volumes for the book release, and “books on demand” to avoid back order and out of stock situations.
