Using offset printing allows us to print your beautiful photo and children’s books on high-quality paper. We specialize in books meant to be handled and admired time and again. Children’s books have been one of our specialties with many award winning books. We use only the highest-quality color printing for the children’s books we print; printing with incredible color depth. We always recommend using a heavier paper stock of 80-pound (80#) or 100-pound (100#) paper stock for proper ink saturation and to create a sturdy log lasting book for children. (If you have children, then you can guess why.)
The trim sizes for children’s books tend to vary more than most books, so we custom quote your book, every trim sizes is available to cater specifically to your needs. We also put smythe-sewn bindings on all our books to create sturdier, longer-lasting books. And, of course, a gloss finish is always recommended for the cover, which will give the books a longer life! CMYK colors work especially well to create vibrant colorful images for the children and provide a truly superior children’s book. We can also apply a number of finishes to make your book even more extraordinary, including spot finishes, foils, embossing, ribbon markers, and special colored endsheets. Children’s books are often judged by their cover; a printing company is judged by their printing quality, which we pride ourselves on.
From unusual sizes and non-standard binding, to add details like ribbon markers, CD and DVD replication with insertion pockets and foil stamping, we are the printer who can make value added feature a reality with cost savings. Some books just need that little something extra, a value added item to make it stand out from the rest. From opulent cover finishes to those unique touches on colored end sheets, we can make sure your book stands out from the crowd.
Embossing is the creation of an impression of some kind of design, decoration, lettering or pattern on another surface like paper, cloth, where engraving, plates are pressed against the surface to leave an imprint.
Headbands/Footbands, these are narrow strips of cloth either sewn or glued to the top (headband) or the bottom (footband) of the book’s spine to add a distinctive finishing touches. Foil Stamping is the application of metallic or pigmented foil on to a solid surface by application of a heated die onto foil, making it permanently adhere to the surface below leaving the design of the dye.Colored End Sheets, add a pop of color with end sheets (the first and last pages of the book) in a vibrant hue, using a heavier paper stock adds strength to your book. French Flaps, similar to a dust jacket, but for softcover books, French flaps are a great place to include praise for your work and add value to the finish product.
