Custom yearbook printing tips:
Firstly, some yearbooks are hardcover bound, while some yearbooks are perfect bound. Therefore, you need to select your choice depending on the type of yearbooks that you prefer.
If your budget allows it, a hardcover yearbook is the recommended choice. Special finishing process for the outside cover is also available with us. For example; gold foil stamping, silver foil stamping on the title, debossing on the LOGO, are some of the services that we provide to our customers. Besides a full color cover, you also can also use cloth, leather or vinyl material to make a hardcover. In this case, the cover cannot be printed with full color process, but you can choose to emboss or foil stamp it.
Secondly, if your hardcover or paperback yearbook is A4, 105gsm, 128gsm, or 157gsm gloss art paper or matte art paper for the interior are the best choices that you have. If you are creating a A5 sized yearbook, 80gsm or 105gsm gloss art paper or matte art paper are the perfect choices for interior paper. Offset paper is also available, but the photo print quality is much better on coated paper.
Thirdly, we are an offset printing company and our MOQ is 100pcs. If you want to print more, we provide considerable discounts, which will make the overall printing costs cheaper.
Finally, paperback yearbooks are most cost friendly and also our most popular style. It is great for all low budget runs.
Yearbook design tips:
Primarily, yearbooks include a lot of photos. Therefore, make sure that all these pictures are of high resolution or at least 300dpi. High-resolution pictures will ensure a good and clear print quality. Please make sure that the inner pages have at least 3mm bleed on top, bottom, left and right. If the yearbook has page numbers, please add them to the cutting side or in the middle of each page. Please do not add page numbers on the spine side, as it would result in them being clipped.
Secondly, the hardcover artwork size is different that the artwork size of paperback book covers. We can provide a hardcover template after you tell us your book size, inner page count and inner paper material. We calculate the spine thickness according to the book specifications, which you have provided to us. This will allow us to calculate the finished book’s size. For this particular type of finish, you will need to keep an extra 20mm bleed for wrapping over the cover board.
