The final product reflexes your identity and the quality is its basis. That is why we in Classic Design rely on proficiency.
If you want your issue to be printed on paper with weight greater than 150 gr/m2 and perfect bound, there is one solution. The book body first should be thread-sewn and after this hot glued to the cover. This provides excellent durability to the issue.
For additional effects UV varnish, spot UV, laminate, gold or silver stamp and embossing can be applied to the covers.
The paper body can be printed on offset or coated paper, gloss or silk, from 80 to 200gr/m2. The number of pages must be divisible by 4 and the total number of the pages must be minimum 24 so that the spine should be 2mm at least. The spine of the book can reach up to 60 mm. The maximum size of the book should not excess 320×320 mm.
