Short Run Checklist
- Margins: The minimums are 1/2 inch in inner margin and 1/4 inch on top/bottom/front. The bindery makes a final trim of 1/8 inch on the top, bottom and front edges.
- Recommended page margins are 1 1/4 inch in inner margin and 1 1/8-inch top/bottom/front.
- Do you want acid-free paper?
- Is the grain of the page running parallel to the bind edge?
- If the grain is running side to side (short grain) books must be sewn (up charged service).
- If the grain is running top to bottom (long grain) gluing may be an option (saves money).
- If you print double-sided, 60-pound weight paper is a recommended weight. If it is lighter, the ink will show through from the other side.
- Endpapers must be 80- or 100-pound cougar opaque.
- Have you communicated well with your book printer and book binder?
- What type of material do you want to use?
