Short-run printing

Printing of a limited number of copies of a book in a single printrun. Technological advances in lithographic presses mean that printruns as low as 300–400 copies are (just) economic. Totals lower than this make digital printing a better option in most cases, with single-copy printing now a realistic option with POD presses.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup. It was first referred to in the blog Getting Published in a post on the requirements and costs of self-publication.
