Switch to Paperless! Learn More About Digital Downloads

Published on April 6, 2022 Law Practice Management


First it was toilet paper, now it’s the printed word. Fortunately, Texas Bar Books is prepared! 

The worldwide paper shortage is affecting Texas Bar Books and publishers around the globe. This article on the WhatTheyThink blog reports that “members of the World Print & Communication Forum (WPCF) warn that the current paper shortages will have severe repercussions in the supply of print products for all economic markets.”  

With new editions of the Texas Probate System, the Texas Family Law Practice Manual, the Texas Real Estate Forms Manual, and the Texas Guardianship Manual ready to go to the printer, the global paper shortage has been a real challenge. We take great pride in the quality of our print publications, and we’re very selective about paper! To continue to provide quality books to Texas attorneys, we’ve looked at some unusual solutions, like using heavier-weight stock and adjusting the size of our books to take advantage of the paper that has been available to purchase.  While new print editions of our manuals will be printed with as little delay as possible, we do want you to know that another option is available. All our manuals are available as digital downloads or as online subscriptions, so you can skip the printed copy entirely and go paperless.  By doing this, you will save money. And rest assured: the download contains every single word of the book, plus downloadable forms for editing and the ability to search the text quickly to find what you need. Have the flexibility to work wherever you want and keep your shelves clear of bulky volumes. Concerned about the technical side? Our digital downloads are incredibly easy to use, plus we have Knowledge Base articles and an amazing team devoted to getting you set up! 

Our mission is to help Texas lawyers practice well, and we will continue to do so, despite the paper shortage!  

Here Are 10 Reasons Why You Should Go Paperless:
