Specifications Sample for A Softcover Book Printing Job
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 2/22/2011  Keywords: Softcover Book Printing Specifications

Compared with hardcover book printing job, the specifications are slightly simple for softcover book printing job. But anyway, different specifications of softcover books are derived from different bookbinding.           

Size: 210 x 285mm portrait            

*** It is very important to indicate the format, because for same size portrait and landscape will cause different costs definitely.      

Quantity: 1000cps            

*** We advise minimum ordering quantity 1000cps, it is the least for an economical softcover book printing job.                    

Text body: 208pp, 105gsm C2S with 4c/4c printing      

*** Total page amounts, paper weight and printing information should be clear.        

Cover: 4pp with 2pp flap, 230gsm C1S with 4c/1c printing plus glossy lamination           

*** If there are flap pages for cover, the page amounts should be indicated, and the surface finishing method like lamination as well.          

Binding: smythe sewn, softcover            

*** There are several different bookbinding methods for softcover based on the thickness of book block. Normally if the thickness is less than 3mm, the saddle stitching should be applied to replace smythe sewn and perfect binding. Otherwise, smythe sewn, perfect binding, wire-o, spiral and comb binding are workable.             

What is more, another point is to clarify the foredge treating, it is ecomonical and easy to flush with book block or shorter than text body. But if the foredge of cover is extended out of body, one more trimming must be added in whole workflow, first trimming applied to the foredge of book block and second trimming for head and tail after binding.          

Pack: double wall corrugated export carton and pallets 42" x 48".          

It should be pointed out that the cover materials could be same as the text, called self-cover. But the self-cover is popular with saddle stitching softcover book printing services, because thin cover materials are not available for thick softbooks.
