Color music book printing tips:
Firstly, for a spiral bound or a wire-O-bound book, please keep extra 8mm margins on the binding’s edge. For example, if the book’s margin is 12mm, the margin on the binding edge should be 20mm.
Secondly, music books include primarily musical notes. These types of printed books are a little different from printed photo books. In order to print quality music book, please design the music scores or music notes with the help of a vector file. This means the black music scores and music notes should be in 100% black.
Thirdly, the copyright page is inside either the front cover, or the second interior page, or the last interior page.
Finally, we do not provide an ISBN. Therefore, you need to apply for the ISBN by yourself. We have book-printing license in China, and therefore, we can guarantee that we will protect your book’s copyright.
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 does not 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. However, 120gsm offset paper is even better. Natural color paper and white color paper are also available options.
Next point, most music books are placed on music stands. Therefore, the books need to be laid flat. For this very reason, we complete most of our music books with the help of spiral binding or perfect binding.
Finally, we recommend the cover be done using gloss or matte lamination. These forms of lamination are waterproof and therefore, it protects the book very well. Spot UV, foil stamping, embossing are also available options that you can choose from for the covers.
