Premium quality

We use premium quality 128 gsm weight art paper for printing your booklets on and with full color CMYK print on both front and back, bringing out rich photo colors on your booklet designs whether you use it for adding instructions for your game or some further information to compliment your cards. In order to protect the ink on the printed surface, we use a technique called water finishing to seal in the colors.

Booklet Tutorial

Watch the below video tutorial to see how easy it is to upload, drag and drop your booklet designs into place for print.

Print bleeding

To accommodate for print bleeding (denoted by the red border area on image), there is an additional 18 pixels (3mm) removed from each dimension (each side based on a 150DPI image), therefore you will see 18 pixels cut off each side of your images that you upload. If your image upload is 300DPI, then the bleeding area for each side would multiply to 36px (2x(18px)). This is industry practice to allow printing to the edge without seeing inconsistent white unprinted areas.
