On-demand service revolutionises the way books are published

Lantia has ripped up the publishing rulebook with a visionary approach that reduces the time to market for authors and publishers.

Lantia, an innovative publisher in Seville, has taken its visionary print on demand book publishing concept a step further, offering immediate on the spot fulfilment of orders. The solution eliminates distribution costs by moving book production from its centralised facility to the very heart of its bookstore. A Ricoh Pro C7200x sheetfed production printer equipped with a fifth colour station automates every step of the production process. 

Vibrant colour covers, complete with a protective laminate finish, are printed on heavyweight media. Customers can select from a library of over 35,000 titles.

Furthermore, books are printed on demand in Lantia’s production centre in Seville, and shipped directly to bookstores, retailers and end customers. Equipped with Ricoh sheetfed presses, it takes the production centre just minutes to produce each immaculately finished book.

"This is a game changer for the publishing industry. It allows any bookstore to have an unlimited supply of books on demand.
