PLANNER AND JOURNAL SIZES
We can print your planner or journal in any standard size or some custom sizes. Common standard sizes include 5.5×8.5″, 6×9″, 8.5×11″. If you’re looking for a specific custom size, please contact us to see if it is a size we can produce.
BINDING TYPES FOR PLANNERS / JOURNALS
Paperback / Softcover Only
Plastic coil binding is available for paperback/softcover planners or journals. We do not offer plastic coil binding for hardcover products.
Plastic coil allows the planner or journal to easily open and lay flat. Plastic coil sizes vary depending on the amount of pages used and the thickness of the paper selected, however, they come at a minimum diameter of 6MM and a maximum of 50MM.
Plastic coils are available in 45 different colors although not all colors are stocked as standard.
Softcover or Hardcover
Wire-O binding is available for paperback/softcover or hardcover/hardback planners or journals.
Wire-O binding is similar to plastic coil, but with a metal material. It allows the planner/journal to easily open and lay flat. Wire-O has a maximum binding limitation of 250 pages depending on the weight (thickness) of the paper used.
Some of the colors to choose from for wire-o binding include black, white, silver, and gold. Please contact us for custom color availability.
LAMINATION AND PAPER OPTIONS
Choose from glossy or matte lamination for your journal/planner. Glossy lamination offers a high-shine/reflective look. Matte lamination has a sort of velvety feel and does not reflect light, a good option for products that will sit on store shelves.
We offer white and cream papers, and also custom papers by request. Papers are available in a variety of thicknesses, such as 50lb, 60lb, 70lb, or 80lb (depending on availability at the item of your order).
TABS AND OTHER ENHANCEMENTS
Custom-printed tabs can be included in your journal/planner to make it easier for your buyers to navigate the sections.
Tabs can have rounded edges or straight/sharp edges.
Tabs can be set up so that they are flush with the edge of the book, or they can stick out past the edge of the book.
Foil stamping is available for planners and journals.
Stamping can be done in gold or silver metallic, or a variety of other metallic and solid color options. Foil stamping requires the creation and purchase of a metal plate (“die”) that is heated and then used to stamp the foil onto the planner/journal.
PROOF / SAMPLE COPY
As part of our setup and pre-press process we will send you a finished copy of your book as a sample or “proof” to review.
Once we receive your files our pre-press and design team will meticulously review your files. Once they have reviewed and adjusted the files for print we will print, bind, and ship you a finished copy to review (or you can pick up the proof if you live in the Atlanta, GA area). This process has saved many authors time and money by enabling them to carefully go over the book one last time. We keep a copy for ourselves that we use as the standard for your book when it’s time to go to production.
