Penguin’s Backlist Will Soon be Going POD

Penguin announced that they’ve picked a POD service for their backlist. Quad/Graphics, a Wisconsin based printer, will be using their print-on-demand and short production run experience to provide a minimal inventory for Penguin. The deal covers all Penguin  imprints in trade, paperback, and hardcover print runs.

Doug Whiteman, Penguin Group (USA)’s EVP of Business Operations, said: “In recent years, we have taken steps to address the area of excess inventory and its resulting impact on the value chain. This new agreement with Quad allows us to take another significant step in that process while also providing our customers greater access to more titles.” According Joel Quadracci, Quad/Graphics chairman, president and CEO, Quad/Graphics’ “ability to work together with Penguin makes us partners in innovation that redefines how many books will be ordered, produced and distributed in the future.”
