Inkjet Printing Makes Personalized Books Possible

It’s no secret that inkjet makes customized printing projects possible and cost-effective. The growth in inkjet technology has allowed companies to creatively customize everything from product packaging to direct mail campaigns. Today, many publishers are using inkjet to create entire personalized books.

Historically, personalized books were still mass produced using traditional analog printing techniques. Larger runs were required for the process to be cost effective. That’s why most “personalized” printed books were just a selection of the most popular names at the time.

With the growing adoption of inkjet, personalized books can be made for any name. Today, far more than a name can be personalized!

These books show how the evolution in inkjet technology continues to find its way into new industries and areas.
