Paper Stock and Weight

When it comes to notebook printing, choosing the right paper stock and weight is crucial. Offset paper is commonly used for notebook printing due to its excellent printability and affordability. It is available in different weights, ranging from 80gsm to 120gsm, allowing you to choose the thickness that suits your needs. Thicker paper weights offer more durability, while lighter weights result in a more lightweight notebook. Consider the purpose and usage of your notebook to determine the ideal paper weight for your project.

Binding Way

notebook binding

Choosing the appropriate binding method is essential for ensuring the durability and usability of your custom notebooks. There are several popular notebook binding options available, each with its own advantages.

  • Saddle stitch binding is a cost-effective option where pages are folded in half and stapled together along the spine.
  • Wire-o binding uses a metal wire that allows the notebook to lay flat when opened, making it ideal for notebook, sketchbooks or journals.
  • Spiral bound notebooks feature a plastic or metal coil that provides flexibility and easy page-turning.
  • Perfect binding is commonly used for thicker notebooks, where the pages are glued to the spine.
  • Flexible binding allows the notebook to be folded and rolled, making it highly portable.
  • Hardcover binding adds a touch of elegance and durability to your notebooks, perfect for professional presentations or keepsake journals.


At BookPrintingChina, our experts will guide you to select optimal binding way.


Post-Press Finishes

  • Embossing and debossing add a three-dimensional element by raising or depressing certain design elements.
  • Lamination provides a protective layer that enhances durability and gives a glossy or matte finish.
  • Spot UV coating adds a glossy and raised effect to specific areas, creating a contrast with the rest of the design.

Artwork Tips

Properly setting up and designing your files is crucial for achieving the best results in notebook printing.

  • Start by choosing the appropriate software, such as Adobe InDesign or Illustrator, to create your design. Ensure that your file is set to the correct dimensions and resolution for printing.
  • Use CMYK color mode for accurate color reproduction and convert any fonts to outlines to avoid font-related issues. When designing your notebook cover, consider the bleed area to ensure that your design extends beyond the trim edge, preventing white borders.
  • Pay attention to the placement of important elements, such as the spine area for perfect binding or the safe zone for wire-o binding.
  • Finally, save your file in a print-ready format, such as PDF, and double-check for any errors or issues before submitting it for printing.
