How a Book Printing Job Carry on
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 2/26/2011  Keywords: book printing workflow,book printing job

Hundreds of aspiring job seekers believe that becoming a commissioning editor is the ultimate dream job in book printing workflow. Does it mean reading and editing an endless supply of manuscripts, and spending hours in fashionable restaurants with famous authors and their agents? Sometimes, Commissioning dispels a few myths. You will research out that editors are responsible for coming up with marketable ideas and matching them to saleable authors. Successful book printing job is founded on contracting good books that sell, and each new book is a business in its own right contributing to the business as a whole. The commissioning editor, holding an exposed and high-risk position, presents new book proposals to the senior management for approval. The editor has to make the business case for the investment.

When a new book proposal has been given the green light, the publisher's editor (the buyer) issues the contract to the author (the seller). In most other kinds of business the seller writes the contract. The signature of the contract is a critical milestone for the author at which point their work acquires value: the publisher endorses their work. Furthermore, in trade book printing especially, the publisher pays the author (who may not yet have written the book) an advance sum of money which is set against their future royalty earnings, based on the publisher's prediction of sales. The big trade publishers complete to secure established bestselling authors, celebrities and new talent through the payment of large advances. Sometimes the sales of the book fall far short of expectations but the author keeps the money, which is written off by the publisher.

The author contract and product development covers the main elements of the contract and the impact authors' agents have on contractual relationships. Agents and worldwide publishers spend a lot of time arguing about in which countries each publisher is to hold exclusive rights when
printing a book, even though books can be bought on the internet avoiding such territorial arrangements. Some publishers do not seem to recognize the implications of the other being part of the European Union and its single market. The contracts between authors (sometimes represented by agents) and publishers, and between publishers themselves, are the legal expression of the deals made. However, they include clauses that derive from practices of past eras which are increasingly challenged by market development from contract through to publication. Books and their authors need different levels of care and attention during their development. Editors help authors to achieve their best work for the intended readership. The timing of publication can be critically important in maximizing sales. The publication of a book is a complex activity demanding and great attention to detail at every stage, and close liaison with many specialist staff in other departments.

When the writer or author finishs the manuscript, he will negotiate with the publishing house to publish them. The editors will review the manuscripts, arrange to illustrate, design the cover, create ISBN number, layout the artworks. Sometimes the editor still need to ask for the prices, manage the production, or be involved in quality controlling possiblly. Any way, this is a whole project if there is a project manager.

The situation might be different with self-publishing. The author need to ask for design company to create final artworks, apply ISBN number in personal, choose the printer, manage the production and shipping. Of course, he can turn to special book printing distributor for selling the books or not.
