As average print runs of books continue their steady decline, the number of titles keeps growing, and the publishing business is attracting an increasing number of small publishers. Printing industry representatives from all three Baltic countries discuss recent developments in the sector and the mechanisms of coping under new circumstances and new pressures. What measures have been taken to reach and maintain high standards? What have been the greatest challenges faced by the industry, and what are the advantages presented by new technologies? To what extent can printing houses offer flexibility to their customers? We’ll answer these questions and discuss why printing in the Baltics offers distinct advantages – affordability, proximity, expertise – and why you should consider it as an option for your future print needs.
