      CPI delivered a 25,000 copy reprint of Eimear McBride’s A Girl is a Half-formed Thing, less than 48 hours after the title won the prestigious Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction.
      The reprint of the B format paperback began within minutes of the prize announcement, which took place at London’s South Bank Centre on Wednesday 4th June. Printing plates for the newly revised cover design, featuring the winner flash, were output immediately at CPI White Quill. Cover printing, matt laminating, spot UV varnishing and a newly introduced embossing continued through the night into Thursday.

    CPI UK Head of Digital addresses Interquest Forum



    Martin Collyer, CPI UK Head of Digital (pictured above, left, at the conference with HP EMEA Market Development Manager Paul Randall), told today’s Interquest Forum that CPI Quantum ‘opens up a number of exciting opportunities’ and that the technology was ‘tearing up the rule book’ for short run digital print.


    He was addressing over 100 delegates at the 2012 Interquest Digital Book Printing Forum, held at the Royal Society in central London. The annual seminar brings together vendors, printers and publishers to share experiences and present latest developments in digital book printing, as well as examining Interquest market research.



    Collyer used his speech to outline the benefits to publishers of the recently launched CPI Quantum colour digital inkjet press. “We now have the flexibility to produce from 50 to 4,000 copies, cost effectively, at the quality publishers demand, whenever they are needed – right here in the UK”, he told delegates. “In mono, in 2 colour and in full colour. In paperback and in hardback.”


    He illustrated his presentation with a video showing the Quantum press in action, including interviews with CPI UK CEO Francois Golicheff and UK Sales Director Alison Kaye.


    The Interquest Forum draws an international participation; US print group Edwards Brothers, CPI’s US partner in its GPS Global Print Solutions distributive print offer, was represented on the panel by Andrew Pate.
