BookBaby Adds Digital Presses, Bindery Equipment to Meet 2016 Holiday Demand
PENNSAUKEN, N.J. — December 9, 2016 — BookBaby has completed installation of new book printing and bindery equipment in its Philadelphia-area printing plant. The company added an HP Indigo 10000 press for color book work, alongside a new Xerox Nuvera single color press for black-only projects.
The major printing plant expansion also included upgrades in the bindery department with Horizon finishing equipment and a Kama diecutter. BookBaby also added Konstanza and Bordino machines for its hardcover case making lines.
“Self-published authors deserve to have their books printed on the best-of-the-best equipment,” says BookBaby President Steven Spatz. “The large (22x29”) HP Indigo paper sheet size allows us to print our growing demand for large-format color photography and art books.”
The new equipment arrived just in time to meet a surge in holiday orders. “With the new investment we expect to ship another 1,000,000+ books from our Pennsauken, N.J. plant,” notes Spatz.
