Print on Demand

The Maple On Demand Program provides POD services for a number of book publishers. As the market for books has evolved, the needs of our clients have changed. Print runs have continued to decline and publishers increasingly have recognized the need to minimize stocking levels and eliminate the cost of obsolete inventory.

This program allows our publishing customers to better manage and control inventory levels while maintaining perfect service levels to their customers. Reorder points and reorder quantities are established for select book titles in the system. Our distribution centers continue to receive orders for the titles specified and have the ability to quickly replenish stock based on the guidelines established. These orders can then be combined with orders for other products shipping to the same location. This enables our customers to minimize cost and inventory while meeting ongoing demand levels. We have the ability to print and bind hardcover and papercover books in 1-4 colors in a wide range of trim sizes to print the perfect book you and your customers expect. Please find more about the capabilities we can offer on our Print On Demand and other resources here.

Creators can avoid the cost of printing and storing books by using Maple Logistics Solutions print-on-demand services. Print-on-demand services allow you to offer your book without printing a large number of books upfront and without having excess stock that you're stuck paying storage for. When a customer orders your book, the book is ready to be shipped to the customer. This system also allows you to reach your readers in the most efficient way possible, and you can trust that your printing is in good hands with Maple's experts. Print-on-demand services are also ideal for publishers who want to offer their backlist titles without the need to fulfill a large printing. Large publishers can use print-on-demand services to offer their entire catalog of titles with very minimal storage. Print On Demand is also a great tool to produce a bridge printing while a longer print run may still be in process. Books can be made quickly keeping inventory available for your sales team to sell while you await a full inventory replenishment from an offset reprint.

Connect your e-commerce website to our the MapleCommerceSM System and watch your books sell. Maple will print and ship your books to your customers. This takes care of the entire process from print to delivery to alleviate the frustration of going through a separate printing and logistics company. The print on demand system at Maple Logistics solution is your one stop shop to print the perfect book and subsequently delivering it to all your readers in the most efficient and precise way possible. We can also provide you with a wide range of value added services to help you manage your business.

Maple On Demand

The Maple On Demand has a convenient web interface system which expedites individual job titles through the production process. Specifications and job files can be easily uploaded to the system and their accuracy and completeness are verified. Samples can be provided for approval to confirm the appearance of the final product and the system allows for specifications to be adjusted or approved for final production. Once approved, customers have the ability to order an initial print run if desired and then manage future inventory levels through their reorder points and reorder quantities.
