Imposition and Plate-making for Book Printing Jobs
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/9/2011  Keywords: Book Printing Jobs

For book printing jobs the printing plates on a press do not print one page at a time. Rather each sheet of paper, printed both sides, carries 8, 16 or 32 pages (or multiples of these), and is subsequently folded several times and cut to make a section (or signature) of the bound book.

Since printers have different sized presses and different binding machinery, each printer is responsible for its own imposition: the arrangement of the pages that will be printed on each side of the sheet so that once the sheet is printed and folded the pages will be in the right sequence and position. The publisher will supply the printer with PS or PDF files that have been prepared by the designer or typesetter. The printer then imposes the pages on to each plate, this is called computer to plate (CTP).

BOOK COMPONENT PRINTING. You may save money by using a different printer to print your covers of hardcover book printing jobs, especially if you want extra such as foil-stamping, embossing and spot UV. The trick is to ask your printer to bid separately on the text and cover printing.

A comparison bid on printing the cover from a good book component printer will insure the quoted price on cover printing is a good value. These markups can be as high as 35%. Since book component printers specialize in this type of work, they offer all the extra at the lowest prices. Email for a free sample packet and more information about book component printing. Detailed information on book writing, production, promotion and distribution. NEED A BOOK MODIFIED? Want to remove a page and insert another without disturbing the binding? Check websites for printing and other services.
