Self cover is where the stock is the same for the cover and text pages.
This means they can be collated and folded all in one which makes the process quicker and less expensive.
Custom cover means the cover is generally thicker than the text pages which is still very popular.
With many different stock options available from 100gsm laser bond through to 350gsm artboard we have you covered.

General Design and Printing Tips
Text and non-bleed images should always be kept at least 3mm from the trim line.
Thin borders on 2 sided artwork are not recommended due to 1-2mm movement in the printing and finishing process. It is difficult to produce an even border on 2 sides for this reason.
Complete Print always prints head-to-head orientation, so all supplied artwork should be supplied as such. Please keep this in mind for folded products like Christmas Cards or rotated orientation books like calendars.
Use a CMYK colour finder for consistent and predictable colour results.
Folding & Scoring
To minimise cracking on folded jobs, we recommend scoring the fold lines.
We strongly recommend you use CMYK Rich Black on large areas of black to ensure a nice solid result. A good mixture for CMYK Rich Black on;
Heavier stock weights use 60 / 50 / 50 / 100
Lighter stock weights use 30 / 0 / 0 / 100
