Print on demand

With our print on demand service, we hold your documents on file and print copies as and when you need them. Print on Demand allows you to order as little as 1 copy of your book through to thousands of copies.

Our print on demand solution offers a range of book printing services for authors and publishers. With our state of the art printing facilities, you are able to print your book how you want it. Whether you’re printing a hard-back novel or a full-colour booklet, our teams have developed a set of solutions to guide you through the process. Because of its flexibility, print-on-demand has become the preferred choice for many publishers and self publishers.

For many publishers looking to reduce large quantities of stock, Print on Demand has become their primary solution due to cost savings in stock storage and reduction but also POD minimises their environmental impact caused by paper wastage.

Do you need a partner expert in POD?

CPI was one of the first to develop print-on-demand in Europe at the beginning of this century, with the English printer Antony Rowe. Our research & development teams have worked for years to evolve and refine the model, offering you quality solutions that are increasingly cost effective. Today, we have two production sites (Firmin-Didot in France and Antony Rowe in England) that cover all your print-on-demand needs, no matter where you are.

Do you need help with the technical aspects?

Print-on-demand does not mean discount printing. Even for a single book, you have access to all that CPI offers: hard-bound, paperback, black-and-white or colour. The book in no way differs from the works we produce in long print runs. We use the same modern, high-performing equipment, and our teams apply the same inspection and quality criteria.

Do you need a simple way to manage your POD orders?

Our IT solutions are the essential corollary to the growth of Print On Demand. They process the workflow automatically, from order production to dispatch. We have a set of high-performing applications that significantly facilitate and accelerate production, and give you an overall view of your order at any moment. These IT solutions also allow us to interconnect our various POD printing houses and our partners abroad using the Global Print Solution, so we can offer you a service that is ever faster and more efficient.
