We’re excited to introduce print-on-demand newspapers at Infusionmedia. You can print as few as one copy to 10,000 copies. This is the first time we’ve been able to offer print-on-demand newspapers, just like we do with print-on-demand books.
The papers are in three formats—mini, tabloid, and broadsheet. But these aren’t your ordinary newspaper sizes. They’re based on the metric system with unique sheet sizes that makes them stand out:
Mini — 180 mm × 260 mm (7.087 in × 10.24 in)
Tabloid — 289 mm × 380 mm (11.38 in × 14.96 in)
Broadsheet — 350 mm × 500 mm (13.78 in × 19.69 in)
Delivery is fast, usually within seven business days.
The mini size is stapled and trimmed for a professional look. The tabloid size is just different enough from the normal tabloid to attract attention. The broadsheet has big pages for authority and impact.
All three sizes are available in digital or traditional offset printing, depending on the print run. The print quality is high, the colors are rich, and there are several paper options to choose from for your project.
Newspapers are effective for small and indie publishing, and they make it easier to read long-form articles in print.
One of the popular uses of print-on-demand newspapers is for personalized newspapers—such as printing a collection of blog posts or online journal articles. Despite the onslaught of web publishing and social media, readers still enjoy the tactile nature of reading in print, and there is an enduring affection for newspapers and newsprint. As we move into a digital world, there seems to be a focus on creating high-quality printed products that last—and a POD newspaper fits into that nicely.
But you can go well beyond the concept of a newspaper with POD printing.
The mini and tabloid are great for zines, catalogs, comics, and newsletters, even programs and posters. Another unique use? Sharing wedding photos with guests. Schools can use short runs to publish student work in newspapers they can then share with prospective parents. Or you can explore uses for promotional pieces like portfolios, case studies, workbooks, sales pamphlets, and marketing brochures.
