Periodicals are bound to customer specifications regarding collating, trimming, rounding, F grade buckram cover color, lettering color, lettering alignment, leaf attachment, and turn-around time. Custom collation is becoming increasingly expensive due to the amount of labor this work requires. Most price schedules for periodicals include 7 lines of lettering, volumes up to 7½ 8776 thick, and a 85-day turnaround.
Badness! So if you 8767 re using Word, use the left justified option (straight along the left side and 8775 ragged right 8776 ). I believe that TextMaker handles this much better.
Picturing it, I suppose I do end up folding with the grain, but I 8767 ve also made smaller books where I 8767 ve folded against it, and it didn 8767 t make a difference.
In document reproduction , any copy made on a scale larger than the original. In the book trade , a greatly enlarged image of a dust jacket , illustration , or specimen page , used in marketing. Also spelled blow up. Compare with blowback.
I 8767 m on a Mac and using Illustrator 65. I have a 75 page book planned. What kind of production is involved and what would I need to give a publisher? Are Inkjet pages
proper to make and give physically or electronically? May electrtonically be hard to transmit due to resolution transmission?
AcmeBinding produces premium-quality softcover and hardcover bindings for commercial printers, publishers, book designers, museums, and galleries throughout the country.
Which is best? I don 8767 t know. I 8767 ve never owned a Phaser, but I 8767 d assume they 8767 re expensive to run. I did own a second-hand colour laser printer at one point, and found it consumed a lot of pricey toner cartridges, and the images it printed had a shiny finish to them I didn 8767 t like.
re Michelle 8767 s post about what to put on her covers don 8767 t want to sound too commercial (since I sell the stuff) but self-adhesive laminating film is an easy way to do this. Library folks claim it will increase the lifespan of a circulated paperback 9-5 times.
For the covers, I 8767 ve ordered a standard inkjet printer, and will be testing out various papers to find one that will withstand being touched, getting damp, etc. (I 8767 ve found a waterproof paper, so we 8767 ll see how that works as an overleaf.)
So perhaps I 8767 ve got an original mix of stuff there. You know what tires me out most in thinking about such a project? Taking pictures and doing the page layout.
Good Lord, if you can afford QuarkXPress or InDesign, don 8767 t bother looking at anything else these are likely the same apps used by most commercial book designers. But you can find lots of lower-priced or free alternatives if you don 8767 t want to spend thousands on one program. Anything that will allow you to freely compose a document on a blank page can do it.
The same is true with book-binding: I have no doubt there are superior bookbinding methods, but if the result is the same to the end-user, I 8767 m not interested in invisible details. For some people, though, the finessing, the craft itself, is the big reward. So I suppose one 8767 s motivations will ultimately shape their process.
Whilst on the subject of hardcovers I have discovered inkjet printable canvas. I can now produce full colour covers to my books with a fabric hardcover. (On my A8 canon printer). To protect the ink from smudging and water damage I use an inkjet fixative spray (Ghiant make one in matt, satin or glossy) which also helps protect from finger marking! I also make dust-covers using self adhesive laminate to make the seperate pieces of paper used appear like one! I really must get out more!! hehehehe
That binding tape looks awfully heavy. I don 8767 t use anything across the pages like that. The instructional book I picked up at xMas has instructions for sewing across tape like that, but theirs is like gauze, not heavy material like that. Sure, if you were sewing up some giant Gutenberg Bible or skin-clad Necronomicon you might need that, but for a small book I 8767 d think it would just get in the way.
