NASHVILLE, TN Ingram Content Group Inc., today announced the launch of its Life Print program, a comprehensive solution for publishers to manage the complete life cycle of print books.

"At Ingram, we are committed to offering publishers innovative solutions for manufacturing and distributing content," said Larry Brewster, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Development, Ingram Content Group.
