Are printed on 10 point C1S cover stock. Other papers are available for an additional charge.
Is the standard sheet used for most books. We offer 60# white and cream colored "Natural White" as well as 70# White offset.
This is the standard for books that feature a lot of color pages. We offer 80# and 100# gloss text. We also can provide other coated stocks on special requests.
For Books that are subject to a lot of handling, we offer a fully laminated option. The Cover is laminated with thicker 30mil and inside pages are laminated at 16mil. The entire book is coil bound. This produces a extremely durable book suitable for harsh conditions like Menus or factory manuals.
While we can print on most papers, there are several that are commonly used for book printing. The vast majority of books are printed on uncoated or non glossy paper. Coffee Table books or art books are usually printed on Glossy or Coated paper which makes the pictures look photographic. Depending on the nature of your book, you may want to consider using a coated paper if you have lots of photographs. We also offer “Dull” or Matt coated stock which has less glare but looks and feels better than traditional uncoated stocks.
