"On-Demand" Printing Has Changed Reprint Decisions

In the past, after a book's initial print run was sold, publishers faced an often difficult decision to either print 1,000 or more new copies or allow the book to go out-of-print. As a result, many important books became difficult to find because demand did not justify a reprint. Now, print-on-demand technology allows the Press to make these books available once again by creating an electronic file of the book and contracting with a vendor to print individual copies as they are ordered.

Recently, the Press has funded the reprint of ten to fifteen books each year and, as a result, more than 300 previously out-of-print books are available to the public. While few books have sold enough copies to justify a traditional reprint of 1,000 copies, in total the Press has sold a significant number of reprinted books.

Become a Reprint Sponsor

While print-on-demand is considerably more cost-effective than traditional reprinting and warehousing, the cost of preparing the digital files, activating the titles in the sales system, and marketing newly available titles is still considerable. To help us expand our print-on-demand effort, the Press invites donors to make a gift of $3,000 to become a Reprint Sponsor and underwrite the costs of making an out-of-print available again.

To become a Reprint Sponsor, please choose a book available for reprint from the list below, complete the form, and return it to the Press with your gift. Press director Kathleen Keane and the editorial and marketing staff have selected titles from the Johns Hopkins backlist which represent a broad range of intellectual interests and publishing achievements. We encourage you to choose a book of particular interest to you or someone you wish to honor.

As a Reprint Sponsor, not only will you make an important and interesting book available to scholars, students, and readers around the world, you will be also be recognized by name on an acknowledgement page in the front of the book, receive up to five free copies of the sponsored book, and enjoy all of the benefits of Director's Circle membership during the year in which the gift is made.

For more information, please contact Jack Holmes at 410-516-6928.
