Cover and printing techniques

Cover graphics and printing play a very important role in any project as these elements give the reader a very first impression of a book. Cover images may be printed directly on the coating, usually in four-colour offset printing, but there are also many possibilities to add a special touch with lithography or letterpress printing, or by choosing a coloured paper and overprinting text and graphics using screen printing or heat printing techniques.

Screen printing 
Binding

After printing, the book is assembled through binding. Specific papers are available for this process, their features are high abrasion, tear resistance and lightfastness, obtained using long fibre kraft pulp, in addition to anti-scratch and anti-fingermark treatments.Hardback binding involves finishing board elements (two covers and the spine) with a sheet of paper. It is also joined by many variants: these include Bodonian binding, characterised by two stiff covers and a flexible spine.

 

Recommended grammage
Boards: from 500 gsm to 700 gsm
Lining: from 100 gsm to 140 gsm

Endpapers on Sirio Color Nero paper 170 gsm

Endpapers on Sirio Color Nero paper 170 gsm - The stiff cover is affixed to the body of the book using endpapers, two sheets of strong paper bonded on one side to the inside of the cover, and on the other side to the first and last page respectively. Choosing a dyed paper or printing images or graphic elements on the endpapers can help turn this binding detail into a strong aspect of the project. Recommended grammage: from 140 gsm to 150 gsm.r


Digital printing

A digital printing system, such as laser or HP Indigo technology, makes it possible to achieve a result similar to offset printing but without the use of a template being as the image is transferred directly from a file. Digital technology is a great solution for printing small quantities and is mainly used in print-on-demand systems and in customised printing applications to achieve more effective and targeted communication. It is always a good idea to check which types of paper are compatible with digital printing as these are characterised by a special treatment which guarantees optimum performance.

Jackets

Hardback covers are often accompanied by a jacket; originally intended to protect books (they are also known as dust jacket), they soon became a full-scale cover for sales. The simplest version is a sheet of lightweight paper “wrapped” around the book, but other unusual methods can also be used: for example, a folded poster may become a book jacket.
