Industry Standard Of High Quality Cookbook Printing

Time: 2024-07-11 Hits: 9

Welcome to BookPrintingChina’s channel. In this video, we will explain various industry standards for cookbook printing and provide tips for high quality cookbook printing.

If you are seeking guides or inspiration to custom print a professional and eye-catching cookbook, I believe this video will help you a lot.

Size: In the cookbook printing industry, the standard size like 8.5” x 11”, 8.5” x 8.5”. Other popular size like 10” x 10”, A4, 8” x 10”, etc. We also accept custom sizes to meet your printing needs.

Binding: For cookbook binding, perfect binding (softcover) is the cost-effective option, while hardcover is more durable and high-end. We also provide other binding options, like spiral binding and concealed wire-o, both allow the book to lay flat when open, providing a better page-turning experience. The binding choice will depend on various factors, such as page count, target audience, and budget.

Paper type: The paper you choose for your cookbook will affect the price and final printing result. Since most cookbooks include a lot of high-resolution photography, so for the interior pages, we recommend using glossy or matte art paper for the interior pages to achieve the best printing result.

At BookPrintingChina, we recommend 128gsm or 157gsm glossy/matte text paper for printing cookbook interiors, as these provide a clear, vibrant finish to the artwork and make the text easy to read. The paper weight will depend on your book’s size, binding, and page count.

For the cover paper, if you opt for perfect binding or spiral binding, we recommend using heavier 300gsm or 350gsm glossy or matte cover paper. If you choose hardcover binding, we recommend 157gsm glossy or matte cover paper wrapped 3mm gray board. If you are looking for a luxury look, you can try cloth or special paper wrapped around 3mm gray board.

Add ons: For cookbook printing, glossy and matte lamination are the most cost-effective and popular choices. At BookPrintingChina, we provide various add-ons to make your cookbook stand out and impress your readers, such as spot UV, foil stamping, embossing, debossing, custom dust jackets, tabs, and silk bookmarks.

File requirement: To avoid leaving white space when trimming, for softcover or spiral cookbooks, we recommend adding a 3mm bleed to each side. For hardcovers, we recommend adding at least 15mm bleed to the cover and spine. To ensure the best printing results, we recommend using at least 300DPI high-quality pictures and transfer your artwork in CMYK PDF format.
