Books can be any size and shape but whatever you need in Classic Design we can offer you the perfect solution.
For special edditions we offer hardback. The body of the book is thread-sewn and attached to the cover with fly-leaf. This provides greater stability to the books and they can be used longer. To make the cover more attractive it can be laminated, varnished or embossed. Title can be stamped with gold or silver foil.
The book can be protected with additional cover, usually made by 150gr/m2 paper, which can also be laminated, varnished or embossed. The number of the pages must be divisible by 4 and the total number of the pages must be 48 or more, so that the spine should be 8mm at least. The body of the book can be printed on offcet or coated paper, silk or gloss, with weight from 80 to 200gr/m2. The maximum size of the book should not be more than 320x 320 mm.
To ensure high quality, we would need you to supply:

All odd number pages must have extention on the top, bottom and on the left side, while all even number pages must have an extention on the right, top and on the bottom.
