Our October session on the options for printing limited quantities of a title or using print-on-demand technology will be led by Mike Johnson of Edwards Brothers Malloy. This book production company handles large runs of thousands of copies for publishers but also has expanded its short-run manufacturing and print-on-demand services in the last decade.
