Printing Tips

Did you know?

You can save some printing costs by replacing a pantone colour with a closely matched 4c version selected from a 4c combination guide book. Certainly a 4c combination is not able to replicate 100% of a pantone color, but out of 12,500 combinations, most of the time you can find something close enough which can help bring the overall cost down. Using a 4c combination guide book to convert Pantone to 4c can be a great solution when under a tight budget.

To create something interesting and unique, you may consider creating frayed edges. To do so, your printer will need a notching machine. It is normally used to fray the spine of a book for a stronger gluing onto the cover. When it applies to the edges, it will rip the borders and create the frayed effect. This adds on a raw tone to your publication

Due to the thickness of the fold itself, in thicker saddle stitch books, the centre pages stick out further than the outer ones. The Thickness of a saddle stitch book depends on the number of pages and the type of paper you choose. When card is used for text, the difference is even more obvious.

Printing Tips
 

If all pages are created in the same size, words that are very close to the outside edge in the centre pages may be trimmed. In other words, the closer to the centre page, the smaller the "actual" size is. To maintain the position consistency on every page, you are suggested to measure the distance from the spine, not from the edge. For thin saddle stitch book however, you don't have to worry too much. To understand whether your saddle stitch project creates this concern, please check with your printer or work out a dummy to be exact.
