Commissioning in a Book Printing Project
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/4/2011  Keywords: Book Printing Commissioning

Commissioning happens usually for book printing jobs. It nearly approaches the ROI target set at 30 per cent, sufficient to cover all the overheads of the publisher and to provide a reasonable profit. The break-even point is the number of copies the publisher would need to sell to surpass the total costs (the direct variable costs and direct overheads). For this book, on the first printing, the publisher would need to sell 83 hardback copies (of the 90 to sell) and 1,000 paperback copies (of the 1,100 to sell) to break even. Taken together, the break-even point is reached at 83 per cent.

The net profit from the first printing is below the amount paid out in royalties to the authors. If sales of the book struggle to get through the first printing, the publisher would incur a potential loss or at best record a very low level of profitability. But on the second printing, the contribution rises dramatically to 3,671 and leaps to 56 per cent. On the three-year view, it is estimated that the contribution would be 5.17. If the sales forecast is cautious, not least to avoid tying up too much cash in stock and storage, and sales exceed expectations, the net profit would nudge up further and be attained earlier.
