Making a Case for Digital Hardcover Binding
by Richard Romano, Industry Analyst
Digital book printing has almost exclusively produced perfect-bound paperback books, but new markets are opening up for high-value, hardcover digital books, books that function as gifts, keepsakes, and mementos. Case binding has often been thought to be out of reach of most digital book printers, but today’s digital case binding systems can bring high-quality and high-value print books in-house, without breaking the bank or your staff.
