Paper Stock and Weight

paper for manga printing

Choosing the right paper stock and weight is essential for custom manga printing services. BookPrintingChina offers a wide range of paper options to suit your specific needs.

One popular choice is the glossy art paper, which allows vibrant colors and sharp details to come to life on the page. Matte art paper is another popular option to consider for printing manga. It has a non-reflective surface, giving your manga a more sophisticated and elegant look. Matte paper is also known for its excellent readability, as it minimizes glare and reduces eye strain. The 128gsm to 157gsm weight range is commonly used for manga printing as it strikes the perfect balance between durability and flexibility.

Offset paper is a cost-effective choice for black and white manga printing. It is known for its high opacity, which prevents text from showing through the pages. The weight of offset paper used for custom manga printing typically ranges from 80gsm to 120gsm.

For those looking for a more premium feel, 200gsm is ideal. This heavyweight paper provides a sturdier feel and enhances the overall reading experience. It also adds durability to the manga, ensuring it can withstand frequent use without easily tearing or creasing. How to select the paper for your printing your own manga? Please refer this paper selection post.

Manga Size

The size of your manga plays a crucial role in its overall presentation and readability. BookPrintingChina offers several popular sizes that are commonly used in the manga industry. The most common size for manga are 5" x 7.5", 5.5" x 8.5" and 6" x 9", which provide a comfortable reading experience while maintaining a portable format. These size are widely recognized by manga enthusiasts and allows for easy storage on bookshelves or in bags.

For those looking for a larger format to showcase intricate artwork, the 8.5" x 11" size is a great choice. This size allows for more detailed illustrations and larger text, making it suitable for manga with intricate plotlines and complex artwork.

BookPrintingChina also provides customized size based on your needs.


Manga Binding

The binding of your manga is an important consideration to ensure its durability and longevity. BookPrintingChina recommends three common binding options for custom manga: saddle stitch, perfect binding, and sewn hardcover.

Saddle stitch binding is a popular choice for thinner manga volumes. This method involves folding the pages in half and stapling them together along the spine. It is cost-effective and allows the manga to lay flat when open, making it easier to read and enjoy.

Perfect binding is a more robust option suitable for commercial manga. This method involves sewing the pages together and then glued at the spine and attaching a cover. Perfect binding provides a professional finish, allowing the manga to withstand repeated use and handling.

For those looking for the ultimate luxury and durability, sewn hardcover binding is the way to go. This method involves sewing the pages together and attaching them to a hardcover, ensuring the manga can withstand the test of time. Sewn hardcover binding adds a touch of sophistication and elegance to your manga, making it a cherished collector's item.

Manga Finishes

finish options

Adding a finish to your manga can elevate its visual appeal and make it stand out from the crowd. BookPrintingChina offers several popular finishes that can enhance the overall look and feel of your manga.

Lamination is a common choice, providing a protective layer that makes the manga resistant to moisture, scratches, and fading. It also adds a subtle sheen to the cover, enhancing the colors and details of the illustrations.

Spot UV is another popular finish that can add a glossy and raised effect to specific areas of the manga, such as the title or certain elements on the cover. This technique creates a visually striking contrast and adds a tactile dimension to the manga, making it more engaging for readers.

Foil stamping is a luxurious finish that can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your manga. It involves applying metallic or colored foil to specific areas of the cover or title, creating a visually stunning effect that catches the eye. More surface options, please click here!


Manga Artwork Tips

Designing artwork for manga requires careful consideration to ensure a smooth printing process. BookPrintingChina provides comprehensive guidelines to help you set up and design your manga artwork correctly.

It is crucial to set the correct bleed and trim size to prevent any important elements from being cut off during printing.

Using high-resolution images and graphics is essential to ensure the clarity and sharpness of the illustrations. BookPrintingChina recommends a resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) to achieve optimal manga print quality.

Additionally, it is important to convert all fonts to outlines or embed them in the artwork file to avoid any font-related issues during printing. Double-checking your artwork files and proofreading the content is also crucial to ensure accuracy and avoid any errors or misprints.
