Hello, My Name is Jen. I'd like to be your service rep. Click here.
We've just received the new edition of "Zinn & the Art of Mountain Bike Maintenance"
and it is another stunning example of why we trust Edwards Brothers Malloy as our printing partner. Each new Zinn edition is its own adventure; this one ran to 464 pages with a two-color interior and a metallic fifth color on the cover. Eight thousand copies later, the result is stunning: Excellent registration, perfect crossovers, crisp binding, and a handsome addition to the long line of Zinn manuals.Malloy as our printing partner

CASE STUDY

a study of offset printing vs digital printing

Offset Printing vs Digital Printing Case Study


If you only look at unit cost when considering offset printing vs digital printing, you may be spending too much. A better way to look at it is to consider the total cost of acquiring, shipping, and storing that inventory over the life of the title. Considering the cost of unsold inventory and the impact it has on cash flow, any change in efficiency in managing inventory can help you improve your bottom line on every title you publish.

Assumptions for our Offset vs Digital Printing Case Study


  • 6x9, 264-page book, soft bound, 4-color cover
  • Print quantities: 750 offset vs. 400 digital (two print runs of 200 each)
  • Quantity sold after 20 months: 400

Analyze the Difference


  • Printing offset will cost $2.31 per unit vs. $3.60 per unit for digital, but when you factor in the unsold offset units, the offset per unit sold cost is actually $4.33, 20% higher than the digital sold cost per unit.
  • You also save $292 by printing two runs of 200 copies digitally vs. printing 750 offset units and scrapping 350 unsold units.
After 20 Months
Units Sold Units Unsold Total Cost Price Per Unit - Bought Price per Unit- Sold
Offset 400 350 $1,732 2.31 4.33
Digital 400 0 $1,440 3.60 3.60
Savings with Digital : $292
