Processing is made in PUR adhesive binding. Here, the individual sheets are glued together with polyurethane glue, which ensures long durability and stability of the spine.
To make it as easy as possible for you and to avoid errors, we perform the imposition (arrangement of the pages on the sheet) for you.
Please create the catalogue cover completely assembled as a double page (exterior + inner) including crown width!
Therefore, the individual pages of the contents (3, 4, 5…) must be created in sequence and may not be imposed in advance (e.g. 150/3, 4/149, etc. is incorrect). You can deliver the individual pages either all together in one PDF file or each page as an individual PDF, whichever is easier for you.
The important thing is: individual pages, no double pages! It should be noted here that almost all layout programs offer the option of a double-page display for layout. However, the pages in such programs are only displayed as double pages and are still single pages after export. You can of course use this option.
Adhesive binding: position depends on reading direction and layout orientation
Data format (incl. 2.00 mm bleed): 21.40 x 30.10 cm
Catalogue cover, completely imposed, allowing for back thickness (number of pages, inner section: 2x paper grammage : 1000 = back width)

Here you can download the template for your product. With the information in the template you can customise your printing file correctly. Please do not scale the size of graphics because the sizes are binding. You can use the inscribed measurement for check-up. The final printing files cannot contain any outlines or folding lines, because you do not want them to be printed. So please create an extra file for outlines and all the information we need to know.
Please note: Despite taking great care, we cannot assume any liability for the correctness and completeness of the provided templates. If you spot any errors, please let us know using the contact form.
