Select paper

Reading is a thing that requires concentration to do. In order to allow readers to read continuously without feeling tired, it is not appropriate to choose too bright when choosing paper. The white paper will become very dazzling and cannot be seen directly under the direct light, so you should consider choosing a slightly yellow paper before printing the book. Although it does not look so beautiful and high-end, it can really protect your eyesight. The role. That’s why I also choose this kind of paper when doing student workbooks and notebooks!

The size of the book

Many designers often think that the size of the book is the same as our common A3, A4, A5 size, but in fact this size is only suitable for a small number of digital printing in graphic stores, and the real large printing equipment needs to consider the equipment The most prominent surface, as well as the size of the bite, so the printing size of books and periodicals will be different from our common printing paper size.
A3 size book printing size: 420mm * 285mm
A4 size book printing size: 210mm * 285mm
A5 size book printing size: 210mm * 140mm
A6 size book printing size: 140mm * 100mm
The above are the commonly used sizes for book printing. It is cheaper to print according to this size. The reason is that the imposition printing is based on the size of the printing machine and the paper, saving paper and saving time. Of course, saving costs. If you need some special design, it is best to communicate with the staff of the printing house, they will also give you suggestions on what kind of printing can save more costs.

Book layout

Each page of the book is composed of text and icons of different sizes. Regardless of the content and format of the book, the typeface, line spacing, and length must be basically the same when typesetting. Only in this way can the book look standard and neat, without clutter.
Typesetting also needs to handle the relationship between titles, page numbers, text, annotations, and charts to make it easy for readers to read, coordinated, and beautiful.
It should be noted that no matter how personalized the typesetting, the ultimate goal is to cater to people’s reading habits. If it runs counter to habits, no matter how interesting the content is, it will make it inconvenient for many people to read and make it difficult to continue to focus.
