PREPARATION OF DOCUMENTS FOR BINDING

In order to efficiently and correctly bind your project, we ask that you deliver files according to these project specifications.

 

for all products

The following must be included in every shipment sent:

BINDERY SHIPMENT FORM
The Bindery Shipment Form lists all of our products, and shows us exactly what you are sending with the shipment. Please indicate the categories, quantities, and number of boxes in the shipment.

 

BINDERY SHIPMENT FORM

BINDERY SLIP
Each item to be bound MUST include a complete Bindery Slip typed or neatly printed IN ALL CAPS STYLE with the exact text you want us to stamp on the spine of the bound book. Your binding slip will be separated from the journal or book and taken to our data entry department, so we won’t have the actual item to refer to. Note any missing pages or issues, and any other discrepancies you know to exist with the item to be bound on the slip. If you do not fill out the binding slips, additional fees will apply.

  1. Produce the copies of the document to be bound as we do not offer any printing services. Add dividers and tabs if needed.

The stamping layout chart shows the basic arrangement of spine stamping, and the standard location of the double rules. Simply type your information in the appropriate slot positions. The approximate caps character fit is about 8 characters per inch. Include your cover and stamping color choice. Cover colors are included on the Standard Cloth Colors chart. Stamping is available in black, white, or gold foil.
