Frequently Asked Questions

What formats are accepted for files?

High-resolution PDF files are the only type of files we accept for printing orders,
since PDFs will embed all fonts and graphics. This ensures that there are fewer
printing issues and less possibility of shifting text and graphics. Please ensure that
your PDF files have been set to include bleeds. Please refer to our print specification guideline before submitting your files

Should I submit the PDF file as reader spreads or printer spreads?
Your file should be submitted as single pages in reader order. Our software will
then format it for printing.

What kind of books do we make?/p>

We have several binding options to choose from. Perfect Bound and Saddle Stitched are the most common options. Plastic spiral is an option for books that should lie flat when open, such as manuals or cookbooks. We also offer case bind books with dustjackets with gloss or matte finish or printed cover wrap option.

You have the option to get gloss UV on book cover. While the coating on a paper is applied at the paper mill, a laminate is something we apply to the cover after printing. Available in matte or gloss finishes, laminate adds a different look and feel to your book, as well as strength and durability.

How do I calculate spine thickness for perfect bound book? The spine width of your book is important to know because it allows you to accurately lay out the cover file for printing. The spine width of a paperback book is dependent on three things:

  • The number of pages
  • The thickness of the paper, expressed in pages per inch (PPI). Use 500 for 50# text stock
  • An allowance for the thickness of the cover. Use .0156 for 10 pt. C1S or 100 lb. cover

The formula for calculating spine width is: Spine width = (Pagecount / PPI) + Cover thickness allowance. Alternatively, use our spine width calculator.
