Music book printing and binding tips:
If your music book includes a music score, you need to select a thicker paper for the interior. Since thicker paper doesn’t have bleed-through. It makes both sides readable without interference from the other side of the page. The interior papers should be least 100gsm offset paper. But 120gsm offset paper is even better. Natural color paper and white color paper are available.
Next point, most music books are placed on music stands. So the books should be lay flat. For this reason, most of our music books are with spiral binding or lay flat perfect binding.
The last, we recommend the cover is with gloss or matte lamination. The lamination is waterproof and it protects the book very well. Spot UV, foil stamping, embossing are also available for covers.
