Print Requirements for your Artwork
Ensure all your artwork has a 5mm bleed all the way around. This includes Internals and Covers.
Internals can be submitted as 1 long PDF document, with individual pages (in correct page order).
Covers can be submitted as a spreads, with the 1st page showing the "back" cover on the left, and the "front" cover on the right. While the 2nd page of the PDF would show the inside covers, with the "front-inside" on the left, and the "back-inside" on the right.
Spines can vary in size. Get in touch with us to discuss this and we'll advise on how best to accommodate for the spine, even if you are printing Saddle-Stitched or Perfect-Bound.
For advice on how to setup your artwork for the "pinch" (the part of a Perfect-Bound book that goes into the spine), give us a call on (02) 9484 1428 or email through your query.
When in doubt, give us a ring! We're more than happy to assist you in getting your next comic-book idea in print.
