Casebound or Hardback Books FAQs

What size Casebound books do you produce?

We can produce almost any custom-sized Casebound book. We do suggest Hardback books need to be a minimum of 40 to a maximum of 600 pages long. If you need some guidance from our creative team please feel free to contact us.

How do I make my Case Bound Book ready to print?

Print ready case-bound book files should be submitted in PDF format, 300dpi with crop marks and a 3mm bleed. We recommend all text and layout to be at least 5mm from the edge of the artwork, but at least 10mm on the edge the binding will be inserted. The pages should be supplied as a single page PDF document.

How can I set up my file for speciality ink finishes?

Layers of your artwork that require speciality inks should be vectorised and changed to magenta. Here’s a full guide for more creative metallic ink finishes.

How can I choose the best paper for my Casebound Book?

Since Casebound books are usually fully customisable, the range of papers that are suitable can be vast. Typically for text pages, we suggest an uncoated white to off white natural or recycled paper stock. 

If you are after some more customisation and fancy finishes, here are our general paper guidelines.

White/ Lightly Coloured Smooth Papers: Best for designs with a solid colour or image background. Works best with additional matt or gloss lamination finishes or white, clear or speciality inks such as white, clear or metallic inks.

Deep Coloured Smooth Papers: Works well for designs with plain backgrounds and speciality inks such as white, clear or metallic inks.

All Textured Papers: Works well for designs with plain backgrounds and speciality inks such as white, clear or metallic inks.
