Recently I’ve had a few requests to produce casebound books so I thought it’d be a good idea to write a post about this particular method of binding. Often referred to as ‘hard cover’ or ‘hard backed’ book, this is definitely the most long lasting of the binding methods. It is also often the most expensive to produce but that shouldn’t rule it out as an option as it never fails to lend a feeling of quality and permanence to any book project. The ‘endpapers’ that are bound at the beginning and end of the book provide a sometimes overlooked creative opportunity; a paper weight and finish different to the main text section can be chosen and special artwork or print finishes used to really grab the attention of the reader. If you’ve ever wondered how casebound books are engineered, I can walk you through it. Contact me for further information and to discuss your next book project.

If you have large amounts of data, for example; products, indexes or other listings and wish to publish it in an efficient and attractive way, you may find that the quantity of data makes it impractical for the work to be done by hand. Thankfully, there is a smarter way; I can swiftly turn your data into a finished publication using a software workflow I’ve perfected over many years of commercial use. Using design templates and import scripts tailored specifically to your project, I can automatically build your entire publication page by page, straight from your data. The technology is flexible and scalable with text styled effortlessly on the fly and photos, logos and other graphics imported at their desired location. The finished publication can easily be hosted online to drive traffic to your website or printed to go into mailing or distributed elsewhere. Contact me for further information and to discuss your requirements.

I just received the latest batch of print samples from Samper Printing. A fantastic mixture of single sheet work, company reports, magazines, brochures and case bound books. There are also a few examples of special cover treatments such as spot uv varnish and textured finishes. These are great examples of the type of work we produce and I’ll be highlighting them in detail over the coming weeks. If you are looking for support with your printed projects, or just need a quick answer to a publishing question, do get in touch.

Wishing you all a safe and happy new year.
