A Print Handbook for Designers

This little handbook is crammed with stuff which the printhandbook team think you’ll find very helpful. Especially if you’re a designer. Their goal is to help you see if your ideas will translate well when printed, as well as show what should be possible from your local press. Hopefully, it will cut down on the guesswork that happens when your job goes from screen to print. The handbook is printed with 4 process colours, plus one Pantone spot colour. It includes four different types of paper (uncoated, silk, gloss and the cover) and has a one colour gate folded cover with a foil. They tried to answer the following questions: Which rich black is the best? What dpi can I get away with? How small can I print text and still be readable? Do colours print differently on different papers? Is an ellipsis elliptical? How faint can I make some text and still be readable? What’s the best file type to use? In this post I will show you a few ‘work in progress’ images and ofcourse some inside views of the book itself.

This post can be placed in the caregory booklet printing.
