First Step for Entering Book Printing Field
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/30/2011  Keywords: Entering Book Printing Field

The first step for a new comer to enter a book printing company is to do much market research. You must carry out research on book printing in general and on your target book printing company in particular, and especially you should research the books these firms publish. Read the trade press, the Bookseller and Book printing News; read book reviews; and visit libraries and bookshops to look at book printing company books and to seek advice from librarians and booksellers. For specialist areas visit the appropriate library or bookshop. When visiting bookshops, during their quiet periods try to talk to the manager who deals directly with central office or book printing company reps. When you have narrowed down the field or have secured an interview, you must read the book printing company catalogue and visit their website before any further approach is made. Contacts in book printing can provide insight into particular firms, offering you advice, spreading knowledge of your abilities, and alerting you to impending vacancies. Sometimes these contacts are influential enough to secure you a preliminary discussion or interview, though rarely a job itself. Therefore, first tap your family and personal connections; if you draw a blank there, take the initiative. You can network by joining the Society of Young Book printing company (SYP), London and Oxford. It holds monthly meetings, at which senior book printing company speak, and publishes the journal, In Print. Membership is not restricted to people employed in book printing. Women in Book printing (WiP) hold regular meetings and training sessions in London and Oxford. Membership is open to women of any age in book printing.

When printed, the dots create the illusion of continuous shades. Hardcover book printing a full colour image requires a four-colour process. The image needs to be broken down into four basic colours: cyan (blue), magenta (red), yellow, and black (known as key). These colours, used to put ink on to paper, are called CMYK, or process colours, and are subtractive primaries. Red, green and blue (RGB) are the additive primaries, used in TV screens and computer monitors. They cannot be used in printing. Color separation can be done using a scanner, or a digital image can be saved as CMYK in an application such as Adobe Photoshop. In order to print a four-color image, you ideally need a four-color press, capable of printing all four colors in one impression. It is possible to print a four-color image on a two colors press, but this is less efficient way and can cause quality problems.

With the emergence of consumer book printing company that publish both hardbacks and paperbacks, the selling of reprint paperback rights by originating hardback book printing company to separate paperback book printing company is now rare. But a small or medium size book printing company while capable of selling a trade paperback itself may not be able to sell a mass-market paperback edition demanding different distribution channels. Thus it could access that market by licensing that edition to a larger book printing company. The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith was first published in 1988 by Polygon, a small Scottish book printing company, before appearing as an Abacus paperback in 2003. The key features of such deals are as follows.
