The thickest printed cover is 350gsm card. This can be either matt or satin finish. Print on outside of cover only.


COVER SETUP

Teviot Print Shop will assist in setting up the cover of your book, but it's good to learn how to do it properly yourself. There are certain steps to take and certain ways to setup your document. Your cover must be a separate file (document) from the rest of your book. A high resolution pdf is preferred. You must include the back cover, spine and front cover as one image in your document (see diagram below) You must add bleed to your cover (5mm on each side) See our Bleed Guidelines at http://www.teviotprintshop.com/bleedguidelines.pdf if you need help with bleeds.
