Electronic Product Catalog Printing Tips:
First, many electronic products are of a small size. To make these small items clear in photos, you may use micro-lens that can take high-quality photos. This is especially important to show the product details in the photo. All images should be of at least 300dpi.
Next, when your graphic designer does the catalog layout, please keep proper scaling to ensure that the products are showing in the correct size. If some details cannot be seen, you may add special marks on the photo and adjust the size based on those references.
Thirdly, many small electronic products are black in color or grey in color. It can look boring on a catalog. Using a colorful background or colorful bars to balance the boring product colors is a great option. You also can design the table background with some light colors. We suggest you design one series of products pages with one particular color.
Fourthly, electronic products have many models. If the content is a lot, =the catalog is bound to be thick. In such a situation, we suggest that you select 80gsm gloss art paper or 80gsm matte art paper for the interiors. In this case, you can create more pages and save mailing fees and printing costs, especially when you print in large quantity.
Next, if you select thin paper, please do not design the full background with dark colors or black colors. This is because thin paper is not good for printing with rich ink.
Lastly, please design all black texts with 100% BLACK after you convert to PDF files. Do not design small black text with CMYK printing, as they are not ideal for such texts or designs.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Can you do multiple covers for one catalog?
Yes. We can provide multiple covers for one catalog.
How can I design the catalog cover with a spine?
For perfect bound catalogs, it is important to have a spine. Before you design catalog covers, please tell provide us with specific information regarding your catalog. These include interior papers, sizes and page counts. Our designers will create a cover template including the spine thickness for you.
When you design the texts or LOGO on the spine, please keep at least 1mm space on the spine’s left side and spine’s right side. This is to accommodate for the tolerance created during binding.
For catalog covers, is creating a cover with varnishing better, or is choosing a laminated cover a better choice?
For thick catalogs, we strongly recommend that the catalog cover be done using gloss lamination or matte lamination. This is because gloss lamination or matte lamination can protect the cover well. If the cover is made using varnishing, the catalog spine corners stand a chance to be damaged.
For a thin catalog or saddle stitched catalog, a cover with varnish is okay.
