For inside pages: The above three paper stock types are widely used material for inside pages of a book. Woodfree paper are light milk white color, it looks natural, it helps protect eyes from strains after long time reading. Woodfree paper is a kind of top grade paper, it’s water resistance and suitable for both single color and colorful printings. Offset paper is a very common stock for books, it’s easy to write on and with lightly rugged surface.

Dust jack, also called dust wrapper or dust cover, act as extra protection on cover of the book.

—-all paper stocks we use are FSC certified.

Book Size:
Normally clients decide their own size for their books, and if you need help or advice from us, please contact us.

We suggest a gloss or matt lamination should be applied on outside cover. It helps to protect the cover from scratches, color off issues, and be more durable. Attractive cover helps books look more professional and worthy to read.

❁ saddle stitching
❁ perfect binding (perfect bound)
❁ thread sewn (sewed paperback)
❁ wire-o ring binding

Perfect bound is the common use binding for books.

If clients require that the catalogs to be more durable for their audience and want the pages to be stick on books firmly and not separates due to many times reading by readers, then sewed paperback should be recommended.  Sewed paperback also be applied if the catalog is very thick with more 200+ pages.

If you are looking to produce a higher end book, then case bound (hard cover) is the best choice. Art paper with matt lamination is commonly a top layer for a hard cover, while some clients look for higher quality look on cover and willing to pay for cost, cloth or leather material can be applied.

IM color offers a special kind of cover material, we call it imitation leather, it looks like leather, but it’s also paper stock. This kind of material cost much lower than cloth or leather, but it looks expensive, which should be an ideal selection for those who is looking for high end books, but would like keep lower cost.

Please contact us directly for instructions and suggestions if required.

Special Processing:
To achieve special effect, some books will be go through some special treatment such as spot UV, embossing, golden or silver hot stamping. These normally applied on outside cover pages, which make your books more attractive.

Clients may have a very tight time schedule and require quick shipment; courier shipment is a good choice.  Besides, for some smaller orders, that with smaller volume and lower weights, it should be more worthy to ship via air instead of ocean.  We will advice our clients for this after we calculate the weight and volume for their order.
