Custom cookbook printing design tips:
The first, the photos quality is very important for printing cookbook. All photos should be high resolution. They should be at least 300dpi. Using high quality food photos in your book will result in great printing and selling cookbook.
The second, we are an offset printer and we only print in CMYK color mode. If the photos are RGB, we will convert RGB format photos to CMYK for printing. RGB colors do differ from CMYK colors. Be sure to look at your proofs. If the cookbook is black and white printing, please make sure all texts are 100% black printing.
The last, some publishers print cookbook with a dust jacket. A regular dust jacket flap is around 90mm. You can design it with wide or short flap. Flap style will depend on your design. For hardcover binding, the dust jacket size should be wider (around 10mm than interior page width). Before you design the artwork, please contact our printing specialist to get free dust jacket template.
Custom cookbook printing and binding tips:
The first, a cookbook should be opened flat. So, sewn hardcover binding, sewn perfect binding, coil bound or wire-O binding is better. We don’t recommend glue perfect binding because the book can’t be opened flat. We also don’t suggest saddle stitch binding because it looks too plain.
The second, for hardcover cookbooks, the board size is larger than interior pages. Thus, there is groove between the spine and the cover. We also need extra bleed for wrapping around the board. Because of this, the hardcover size is different with a perfect binding cookbook cover. If you don’t have experience with hardcover cookbooks, please contact our printing specialist for help. Tell us your book size, page count, paper etc. Our designer will do a cover design template for you. This service is provided for free.
The third, printing cookbook’s interior paper is with 128gsm or 157gsm gloss or matte art paper. Because thinner paper has a bleed-through and thicker paper is not easy to open flat. 128gsm or 157gsm art paper can balance well. If you need, we provide free paper samples for checking.
Finally, printing a cookbook with vinyl material cover is also a good choice. Vinyl is waterproof and it also allows for more color choices. Embossing or foil stamping on vinyl cover is also available. Vinyl hardcover in combination with a dust jacket can make your cookbook look extra luxurious.
