Interior pages are printed in digital black and white or digital color. Our standard text paper is 60# white Lynx Opaque Offset, ordered in large quantities, resulting in savings for you. Other colors, weights or recycled paper can be special-ordered upon request. Coated text paper is also availble for spiral binding.
We print all covers digitally in full color. Our standard cover stock (for softcover books) is white Carolina 12 point C1S, a heavy-weight stock that is coated on one side. We also offer 80# white Lynx Opaque Cover, and 80# natural Cougar Opaque Cover. After printing, covers are laminated with gloss film to protect from scuffing.
We laminate all our printed covers as this is the best possible protection for a cover. We offer two finishes, gloss and matte. Our standard is gloss, the shiny characteristics of the gloss finish make the colors "pop." The subdued look of the matte finish is a much "softer" feel and is slightly more opaque to the colors underneath at additional cost.
This binding uses a plastic coil. The maximum page count we can spiral bind is 450 and the minimum page count we can spiral bind is 20. We offer 14 colors to choose from (see below). Colors below are approximate, and cannot be accurately portrayed onscreen.
