Softcover Book Guide

Custom Softcover Books

Our softcover books are all Perfectback bound and available in sizes from A6 to A4. You can choose your inner pages to be printed in full colour or mono. In a  range of paper and cover types with a page count between 40 and 250.

 

Templates

To create the your books you will need to go to the softcover product page and calculate the spine width based on the papers you wish to use and the amount of pages in your book. Once you do this you'll be given links to download the correct templates.

Papers

Our full colour books have the option of 3 different inner papers in different weights. All of them display colours well. The Milk White paper darkens and desaturates colour but has a beautiful texture and warm cream tint.

Our mono books have colour covers but use Munken Book Wove paper which is a typical and beautiful paper for printing text and black line drawings.

 What is a bleed?

The bleed is an area around the margin of the page which will be cut off. All of the files you supply must have a 3mm bleed. So for e.g. if you have an image on the page which goes to the edge you will need it to go 3mm past each edge.

Saving your files

All of your files should be saved as PDF with the preset 'High Quality Print'. Please do not include printers marks in your document, we do this for you. 

Uploading your files

For your inners please make sure that the pages in your PDF are sequential e.g. page 1.....page 12
