[QUOTE from Tony Harris: What about using digital photocopiers rather than printing?] That is exactly what digital printing is.

It is toner based, just the same as photocopiers. Most copiers are digital now.

All FSpace books have been done that way to date. They are unlikely to last long.

Offset printing using inks that soak into paper is what is required for long term durability and life. And there are plenty of sealer mechanisms for such work. The only problem is the costs involved, and the only way to make it economic is print at least 3000 books at a time. Even this is tight given the markups that occur before it hits either US or UK retail.

Tony, you haven’t been made party to all our pricing models and the costings the core development team has been privy to for many years.
