Complete the form on the right to receive your complimentary copy of the Publishers Weekly Special Report on Prepress Services for Publishers, which provides case studies, and research that comprehensively addresses these questions:
- As you grow your list, does it make sense to continue to grow an in-house staff of editors, copy editors, art directors, and production specialists?
- If so, will this in-house staff be able to keep up with all the books a publisher wishes to bring out in a cost-effective way?
- Should a publisher produce some books in-house and outsource some or all of the production tasks for other titles?
- In terms of speed, capacity, and cost, is it sensible to outsource much of your production work to third-party vendors, saving in-house resources for developing and maintaining author relationships, working with distributors and partners, and conducting promotion?
