Custom Art Book Printing Services

As a professional book printer, we help our customers choose the most suitable printing materials. According to our client’s printing requests, we can choose better cover materials, interior paper, dust jackets materials, etc. Moreover, we will guide you through the entire process, starting from prepress, to printing and finally binding, in a systematic manner.

Many artworks are scanned or photos were taken from art galleries. To produce top-notch products, we ask you to please provide us with CMYK format artwork. Creating artwork with CMYK format is better than RGB format. Owing to the fact that the color will be changed after converting from RGB to CMYK format, we suggest that you create the artwork in the CMYK format to begin with.

If you request us to, we are also able to print hard proof of your book and a dummy before mass printing starts. The hard proof is done with the help of digital printing. The colors on the hard proof and the final product color are similar to as much as 95% because we use a GMG color proof system to ensure color control.

Contact us and we can start our collaboration now! Our professional staff is always on standby to help you out, regarding any and all needs, which you might have. Besides printing art books, we can print many other types of books. These include graphic novels, comic books, yearbooks, coffee table books, hardcover books to name a few. In addition, we can print full color catalogs, calendars, brochures, etc. to meet your specific printing needs.


Custom Art Book Printing Tips

icon 1

The first thing to keep in mind is that an art book focuses primarily on your artwork. Therefore, print quality is very important. Since the color of the art, which you include in your artwork needs to be as close to the original color of the actual artwork, using high-resolution pictures and correct color for printing your art books is of great importance. Since we are an offset printer, all files you provide to us should be in the CMYK color mode. If the colors are in RGB colors mode, it will turn out to be a little different after conversion. Therefore, provide artworks in CMYK color modes to begin with, in order to avoid such color alteration.

Secondly, each art book has its own specifications and we will be there every step of the way to guide you. For paintings, the color needs to be strong enough to be visible when printed on paper. 157gsm gloss art or matte art paper for interior pages is the perfect choice for such needs. The photos that are printed on coated paper will have more details and richer colors; hence, they too would make a good choice. The colors printed on coated paper allows for vivid prints, which is perfect for paintings.

Finally, size is another important decision, which you would need to make concerning your art book. We provide a free cover design template once you tell us the size and inner page amount for your book. With the help of your specifications, we can calculate the cover’s thickness as well. Some art books need a cover with a flap. Our regular flap width ranges are from 90mm to 200mm. If you prefer an art book with a flap, please tell us the size and we will create a cover template for you to verify.

How to Print Large Size Art Book?

Paper Suggestions

We have worked with many clients who tasked us to create a large-sized art book. For a large-size book, thicker paper for the cover and the interior are the best choices. A 300gsm or 350gsm gloss art paper would be perfect for the cover. A 157gsm or 200gsm gloss art or matte art paper would prove to be brilliant for the interior pages. Thicker material will also prevent bleeding through the graphics from one side to the other side of the paper.

Binding Suggestions

For larger books, we recommend sewn and perfect binding or sewn and hardcover binding. Sewing and perfect binding consists of sewing all the inner pages first and then gluing the binding with the cover. We also use glue binding after sewing, which makes the book perfect bound. This finish will also allow the book to be perfect for being able to open flat and therefore, provide the best full-page visibility for users. Hardcover art books are also a very popular choice. However, hardcover costs are higher than perfect binding, which is a thing that you should keep in mind.

If your budget allows, we recommend going for hardcover art books, as they are sturdier and look a lot more classy than the other variants. If your budget is low, a perfect bound art book is the best choice.

Therefore, let us start on our collaboration, and allow us to print the perfect art books for you in China. We guarantee brilliant quality and 100% satisfaction from the printing services we will provide.
