Self publishing your book is easy!
Writing a book is a massive task but self-publishing or getting it printed doesn’t need to be.
If you’ve written a book and want to self-publish, have created a Family Tree or Historical Manuscript which needs archival quality paper or you just need some Invoice or Receipt Books for your business, Graphics Unlimited will make the whole process easy for you.
One of the choices you will have is the type of binding you want. Novels or Self-help books are generally Perfect Bound (Paperback) but can be Case Bound (Hard Cover) although the cost is significantly higher for Case Binding. You often see Dust Covers on Case Bound Books but it’s not compulsory. Small books or rather books with fewer pages can also be Saddle Stitched (see Booklets for more information) or can be Wiro Bound, Coil or Comb Bound.
These methods are typically used for Work Books and Manuals. Invoice Books are generally Quarter Bound with a thick ‘crocodile’ pattern front cover with binding tape to cover the staples which hold the book together. Typically these books are printed on carbonless paper and in duplicate or triplicate.
Each method has its own individual benefits and the purpose, or type of book you want printed, may determine which binding method you choose. There are quite a few other choices to make when you are having a book printed, but the team at Graphics Unlimited will guide you through the entire process.
One of the most important aspects to be considered is the design of your cover. Even if you can supply the finished (ready to print) artwork for your book, I would recommend having the cover professionally designed. If you intend selling your book, the cover can be the difference between your book being picked up or left on the shelf – you only get one chance to make a good first impression and books are judged by their cover.
