Few things to note:

  • Mixing paper types or color-scheme is not possible. The entire book needs to be printed on the same kind of paper. Photoplates etc. on a different paper is not feasible in our production system. If even a single interior page is colored the entire book needs to be printed in color and will be priced accordingly.
  • Hardcover books cannot go in distribution.
  • Natural shade paper is available on demand.
