Textile Materials for Book Printing Jobs
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 2/21/2011  Keywords: Book Printing Jobs

China ancient book covers were usually textile materials. In modern book printing services, textile materials are also popular for hardcover books. There are three sorts of textile materials available for book cover, cotton fibers, silk fibers and hemp fibers.

Cotton fiber textiles are the earliest and most popular for book printing materials in China. Cotton fibers are poor acid resistant but flexible with alkali materials. Every kind of gluing material is available for cotton fiber textiles. But cotton fibers have the disadvantages of absorbing water easily, so it will deform after absorbing water. In order to prevent from deforming, the masters usually treat the materials before. We can make the fiber wet, and then mount over paper, so when two layers are dry, the cotton fiber will be flat without deformation. We also can put cotton fibers in resin liquids, and make sure it soaked by resin which will make the fiber much stronger.

Silk fiber textiles had been popular before more than one thousand years in ancient China. Silk fibers material cover will make the book elegant and expensive. It is also fantastic, easy to glue and foil stamp, and with China traditional characters. Similar with cotton fibers, silk fiber textiles have the disadvantage of poor anti-deformation, so it should be treated before using like cotton fibers. Silk fibers main ingredient is protein, so the material is poor acid and alkali resistance. Silk fiber textiles can be foil stamped with temperature up to 165 centigrade.

Hemp textiles are made from bast and linen fibers. Cream white color fibers with coarse or middle cross are popular for book cover materials. Hemp textiles feel simply, elegant and demure, most for high quality and big size book. The reforming and treating methods are similar with cotton or silk fiber textiles.

Cotton, silk and hemp textiles are all popular for modern book printing jobs. The designer and project manager could decide to use which one based on the budget, the intention and the target.

Surface decorative machenical such as foil stamping, blind stamping, debossing, flocking and others, are available for cloth materials. Cloth bookbinding materials are popular to encyclopaedia, novel and photography printing jobs, but normally there should be dust jacket printed and laminated wrapping over the case, especially for hardcover book printing jobs.
