Reprints Desk and Pools Press Now Affiliated: Will Offer Innovative Reprint and Printing Solutions
Derycz Scientific, Inc. announced today that it has acquired a majority interest in Pools Press, Inc. and will integrate the print house with Reprints Desk.

Los Angeles, California (PRWeb) March 7, 2007 -- Pools Press specializes in reprints from medical and technical journals, as well as commercial printing including newsletters, catalogs and booklets with a worldwide distribution network. Northbrook, Illinois-based Pools Press has been in the printing business for over 50 years. Matthew Sampson, whose family has run Pools for three generations, will continue to manage the business while working closely with the Reprints Desk staff to expand the reprints business. With the integration of Reprints Desk and Pools, the turn-around on professional reprints will be measured in days instead of weeks while maintaining the quality of commercial reprints expected by the scientific reprint market. Reprints Desk will also be able to fulfill all reprint orders without any minimum quantity, from one copy to thousands.

Pools Press currently administers the reprint programs for CHEST, the official publication of the American College of Chest Physicians, and provides print services for the University of Chicago Press reprints program. Reprints Desk currently provides reprint service bureaus for the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians and the nursing journals owned and published by Anthony J. Jannetti, Inc., providing an outsourcing solution from quotes to orders to printing and fulfillment. Reprints Desk's corporate customers are leaders in the healthcare industry.

"The integration of the two companies will allow us to expand our reprints business. We want to provide our customers in the healthcare sector with premium quality reprints in a timeframe that is faster than the four to six weeks that is the current industry standard. We also want to expand the reprint services we provide to publishers," said Jan Peterson, Head of Publisher Relations for Reprints Desk, "by offering print services, administrative support and proactive sales efforts."

"Our affiliation with Reprints Desk will allow us to move in innovative new directions," said Matthew Sampson. "We are looking forward to defining the next generation of reprint services."
