Paper Details

Like all our press printed cards and products, press printed books are printed with the same HP Indigo printing technology with liquid inks. Select Lay-Flat papers can also be ordered with Gloss Coating for added protection and to give your pages a shiny finish and feel. Book pages are stitched together to create the book block that is adhered to the cover using black cardstock end sheets.

To Hinge or Not to Hinge?

Most of our papers include a hinge to allow each page to lay-flat as well as provide a thicker, more upscale paper option. If your book includes a lot of full spreads or you need it to be more elegant looking, this is definitely the way to go.

Customize Your Book

We've Got You Covered

All of our Press Printed Book covers are made with hardboard to give the books a smooth, substantial feel. Choose from 48 cover material options including a variety of fabrics, leathers and suedes, or a custom photo cover in lustre or metallic. Photo covers are made with a photographic print that is laminated and adhered to the masonite cover. The photo cover allows for complete customization on the front, spine, and back of the book using your own images and designs.

Combo Covers

If you want to make your book even more personal for your client, create a Combo Cover by mixing and matching a fabric or leather option with a Custom Photo Cover. Your cover photo can be printed on Metallic or Lustre paper with Matte Laminate. Then, choose to have a custom photo on the front right and back left of the cover with the spine wrapped in a fabric or leather, or choose to have the custom photo on just the front right of the cover and the fabric or leather wrapped around the spine and entire back of the Album cover. The fabric and leather on Combo Covers is finished with your choice of white or black stitching.

The Finishing Touches

Add a personalized foil stamp to take your Press Printed Book to the next level. Cover foil stamping allows you to place three lines of text on the front cover in one of three places: the center of the book, the lower right corner, or the bottom center. Foil stamping is only available on select leather covers.

Custom Photo Covers

  • Lustre Paper with Matte Laminate

    Vibrant colors and excellent skin tones with a slightly textured, matte finish.

  • Metallic Paper with Matte Laminate

    A metallic base adds a slight shimmer and vibrant colors. Slightly textured, matte finish.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I order multiple copies of the same book?

    On the “Review Order” Screen in ROES, type in a how many copies of the book you would like in the “Instruction box.”

  • Does page 1 of a Press Printed Book start on the left or right?

    The first page begins on the right as a single page. When you turn that page it opens to the first spread.

  • Can I submit spreads?

    Yes, but we suggest you send each side individually. If submitting a spread, ensure that the spreads are sized correctly. A spread will be exactly twice the width of the standard single page template. When ordering a spread, you will need to drag the image to the far right and click "Add to Order" then drag the image to the far left and click "Add to Order". This will then add each side of the spread to the order. If your spread is not sized correctly, then you may lose image in the center of each side.
