What to Expect When You’re Printing

Deciding to digitally print a book can be exciting – but it can be daunting, too. Knowing what to expect throughout the printing process can make it a much more enjoyable experience all the way around. Communication is key – you need to feel free to communicate with your printer at all stages of the process. A good printer will help you understand what your design and production options are, and will take the time to listen to your expectations. They’ll provide you with a complete outline of the printing process and clearly explain to you what they need from you in order to make the printing a success.

Following this checklist will ensure accurate communication between you and your printer, and help you create a great digitally printed book:

  • Customer Information
  • Delivery Date/Due Date
  • Number of Originals/Copies
  • Single-sided/Double-sided
  • Originals Delivered As
  • File Formats
  • Fonts Used
  • Page Size
  • Paper to be Used
  • Binding Method
