Important Info for Color Manual Submission
Manual and Booklet printing files must be submitted in a single page format all in one file. Please do not submit a separate file for each page. Please note that all pages in your file must be in the proper sequence required: outside front cover is page one, inside front cover is page two, etc. If you need help with this, please contact our support team.
Cover Options for Booklet Printing and Manual printing
Here are a few terms that you need to understand that may make a difference in the outcome of your Manual printing or booklet printing project.
Self Cover vs Plus Cover
Manual printing as a self cover means that the cover is printed on the same weight stock as the inside pages. Manual printing as a plus cover means that the Manual cover is heavier than the inside pages. Your Manual printing can be done either way. The printing cost for plus cover Manual printing or booklet printing is a little higher due to the need to run a separate press sheet signature.
