DIGITAL PUBLISHING

Our specialization has always been the technological innovation. In fact, Prinp was born as an internet platform for shared experimental publishing, at the end of the 2000s, in a context of great excitement, with the explosion of ebooks and digital reading devices.
Over the years we have developed numerous cross-media publishing projects, redefining publishing production models, using the tools provided by the world wide web and new technologies to publish, print, sell, share and distribute books in both paper and digital format.
Prinp has always been a laboratory, a place for editorial experimentation, and is today more than ever. From print-on-demand to the web to epub, mobi and kindle formats, our publishing house invests in digital publishing research.

ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

The Prinp publishing house, since its foundation, has always had a particular attention to the climate emergency and the protection of the planet.
Our contribution to the environmental protection takes place through a precise environmental policy: we have chosen the “on demand” printing technology, which allows you to print only and exclusively the copies of the books you actually need, sometimes in micro runs, avoiding waste from the high runs of traditional press. Until a few years ago it was inevitable to pack thousands of copies to amortize costs and optimize the production process. Today, thanks to high quality digital printing, print runs are drastically reduced, rather than by carrying out more frequent and less expensive reprints.
Printing “on demand” cancels warehouse stocks, avoids returns to the publisher and the consequent pulping of unsold copies.
Prinp’s distribution process is also optimized: books are ordered and shipped only on-demand, consequently the pollution due to transport is reduced to a minimum.
We also try to encourage the production and trade of ebooks, works in digital format and electronic editions as much as possible, to completely avoid the use of paper and printing, thus implementing the integration of digital content distribution platforms.
The books are thus published in the necessary format and quantity, when, where and how they are needed. Prinp’s printing technology does not emit CO2 into the atmosphere, it does not produce polluting waste (inks, chemicals, solvents and derivatives used in traditional publishing) or toxic waste of any kind, takes place on production lines that are entirely of a low environmental impact and it uses certified, recyclable and recycled papers.
