Ingram is expanding the scope of the printing services it is offering to publishers through the launch of a program it is calling Life Print. Best known for its print-on-demand capabilities, Life Print will now allow publishers to use Ingram to manage the complete life cycle of a book, manufacturing books in any quantity. The program also gives publishers the flexibility to manage all frontlist, backlist and long tail titles from one source, using one file and one order process, Ingram said.

“We created the Life Print program to simplify the manufacturing and distribution process, offering a one-stop, cost-effective source for managing all titles in one place,” said Larry Brewster, senior v-p, strategy and development, for Ingram.
