Digital printing sessions consist of three sequential phases: pre-print, actual printing, and post-print. When the postprint

ends, printing presses go to a lower machine state. It is common for most print-end-to-print-start intents in

digital printing short runs to be shorter than the overhead of the combined post-print and pre-print duration. In other

words, the combined post-print, short break and pre-print durations are on the critical path for maximizing productivity

and throughput. Here, a method is described for keeping digital printing presses in a state that allows significantly

faster return to print. Basically, it is achieved by reducing the print-end-to-print-start duration. Not only does this

significantly improve productivity and throughput, it also dramatically reduces consumable failures.
