Papers

Like all our press printed cards and products, press printed books are printed with the same HP Indigo printing technology with liquid inks. Book pages are printed on 100# text weight Standard Semi-Gloss paper, 110# cover weight Standard Semi-Gloss hinged paper, 100# cover weight Satin hinged paper with Lustre Coating or 110# cover weight Pearl hinged with UV coating. The hinged paper allows open pages to lay flat a as well as provides a thicker, more upscale paper option. Hinged paper can also be UV coated for added protection and a glossy look and feel. Book pages are stitched together to create the book block that is adhered to the cover using black cardstock end sheets. Books are priced as a base book with a cover and 20 printed sides. Additional sides are available for up to a maximum of 90 sides on 100# standard text paper, 60 sides for Satin hinged paper, 50 sides on the standard semi-gloss lay-flat hinged paper and 40 sides on hinged Pearl paper.

Covers

All press book covers are made with masonite to give the books a smooth, substantial feel. Choose from 34 cover material options including a variety of fabrics, leathers and suedes, or a custom photo cover in lustre or metallic. Photo covers are made with a photographic print that is laminated and adhered to the masonite cover. The photo cover allows for complete customization on the front, spine, and back of the book using your own images and designs.

Create a Combo Cover by mixing and matching a fabric or leather option with a Custom Photo Cover. Choose to have a custom photo on the front right and back left of the cover with the spine wrapped in a fabric or leather or choose to have the custom photo on just the front right of the cover and the fabric or leather wrapped around the spine and entire back of the Album cover. The fabric and leather on Combo Covers is finished with your choice of white or black stitching.

Additionally, enhance the cover of your book with cover foil stamping. Cover foil stamping allows you to place three lines of text on the front cover in one of three places: the center of the book, the lower right corner, or the bottom center. Foil stamping is only available on leather covers.
