How to set-up artwork for bound documents
Please read the relevant product guidance and refer to our Artwork Checklist. Please get in touch with us via LiveChat for any questions.
How much print margin do I need?
As a general rule, we recommend a 5mm artwork margin. However, some bound documents require larger margins to account for the binding edge.
Will my document be flipped on the long edge or the short?
Depends on the file orientation, product and binding edge. Please inspect the Preview before checkout to ensure it matches the requirements.
For extra durability, consider our card cover (printed or plain) and acetate cover options.
Both cover types can be added to the front and back of your comb bound document as required.
Card covers will be printed on one side only, the reverse side will be plain (unprinted) by default.
Acetate covers are plain only and not printable on the front or reverse.
