Hardcover Book Printing Job Workflow:

(1) Pre-press
When we get the artworks from customer, we will produce low resolution proofs for checking imposition and content. Image Printing Packaging Limited makes the proofs using HP Designjet 5500 and HP Designjet T770. These proofs should be sent to client for approval regularly, but now in DTP (desktop publishing) working process, more and more customers just require low resolution PDF proofs for approval.
After all these proofs approved, we could arrange to create plates for printing. Image Printing Packaging Limited creates CTP plates using CTP workflow of Screen Plate Rite 8600S and Creo Trendsetter 800II Quantum.
In order to provide color matching scale, Image Printing Packaging Limited creates high resolution proofs for color contract matching on Epson Stylus Pro 9880c, Sometimes the customer requires to approve these proofs before releasing for printing, which is also workable for us.

(2) Printing
Normal printing machines can print the paper size from 420 x 280mm to 1020 x 720mm, and weight from 36gsm to 400gsm. Based on this qualification and China local paper normal size, we recommend economical size book from 6" x 9" to 8.5" x 11". Especially for small qty order, 6" x 9" book is the most economical size.

(3) Binding
F & G means folding and gathering when printed sheets come out from cylinders and dry in 24 hours normally. Meanwhile, the case could be made based on specific binding requirements. For smythe sewn binding, the endpaper should be adhesived to first and last signature before gathering, and then sew the F & G into untrimmed bookblock. During casing in process, H/T hands, backing liner and paper etc will be involved before final book finished, which is obviously different from
softcover book printing job. The case normally consists of grey board and PLC, sometimes PLC can be replaced with cloth or leather materials as customer's requirement. Hardcover smythe sewn binding book differs from wire-o book printing job, spiral book printing job, comb book printing job and ring book printing job. These coil books normally only have 4pp endleaves adhesived to the case firstly but not  the first & last signature. What is more, the case and book block are jointed together through various coils after being punched diversely, but not connected together by endpaper.

Hardcovers generally consist of pages, two boards and a cloth covering them. The pages are glued into a flexible piece between the boards, and it is also covered by the cloth. A paper covering, usually artistic in nature, is put over the cloth, folding over each horizonal end of the boards. On the folded part over the front cover is generally a blurb, or a summary of the book. On the back folded part is where the biography of the author and/or illustrator can be found. Reviews are often placed on the back of the jacket.

Many people are complaining that they can not find good book printers to help their out. In fact you can try to find book printing company in China. First the printing cost should be much lower because of cheap labors, secondly we gurantee the printing quality, which you can get informed of many people who do business printing with China.
