Spine thickness
To estimate spine thickness for straight spine please count inside block thickness and add 4 mm or 6 mm as for cardboards.

for uncoated paper 80 g/m2 - page count should be multiplied by 0,05mm (round up to 1mm);
for uncoated paper 90 g/m2 - page count should be multiplied by 0,055mm (round up to 1mm);
for uncoated paper 70 g/m2 - page count should be multiplied by 0,045mm (round up to 1mm);
for volume paper Ecco-Book Cream vol. 2.0, 70 g/m2 - page count should be multiplied by 0,0685mm (round up to 1mm);
for volume paper Ecco-Book Lux vol. 1.8, 90 g/m2 - page count should be multiplied by 0,078mm (round up to 1mm);

Inkjet papers
To estimate spine width

for JetStar uncoated paper 80 g/m2 - page count should be multiplied by 0,05mm (round up to 1mm);
for volume paper Alto vol. 1.5 90 g/m2 - page count should be multiplied by 0,0675mm (round up to 1mm);
for volume paper Bio Top 3 vol. 1.35 90 g/m2 - page count should be multiplied by 0,06075mm (round up to 1mm);

Example: Our Book has 250 pages printed on uncoated paper 80 g/m2, spine thickness = 250 x 0,05mm + 4mm = 16,5mm ~ 17mm


To estimate spine thickness for rounded spine please count inside block thickness and multiply by a factor from tabel below and add 3 mm.

Under 201,225
20 to 251,195
25 to 301,175
30 to 351,145
35 to 401,125
40 to 451,115
45 to 501,105
50 to 601,095


Example: Our Book has 250 pages printed on uncoated paper 80 g/m2, spine thickness = 250 x 0,05mm = 12,5 * factor * 1,225 = 13,72 + 3mm = 16,72mm ~ 17 mm

Preparing cover for
A4 size (210mm x 297mm)
horizontal length: 210mm x 2 + spine + 30mm bleed = 450mm + spine;
vertical length: 297mm + 30mm bleed = 327mm

A5 size (148mm x 210mm)
horizontal length: 148mm x 2 + spine + 30mm bleed = 326mm + spine;
vertical length: 210mm + 30mm bleed = 240mm

B5 size (170mm x 240mm)
horizontal length: 170mm x 2 + spine + 30mm bleed = 370mm + spine;
vertical length: 240mm + 30mm bleed = 270mm

Inside block should be 3 mm smaller then a cover from each of four sides:
I.e.
A4 (210x297) - 204mmx291mm
A5 (148x210) - 142mmx204mm
B5 (170x240) - 164mmx234mm

There is no bleed required for black&white pages
7 mm margins is required.


Note: Do not put any text on books spine thinner then 6mm

Lines
Minimal line thickness is 0,25p (0,088mm)

Fonts
Minimal font size is 4p
All fonts in text should be converted to curves or embedded with the pdf file.

Background
Minimum colour use is 5% of any component (i.e.: C-0 M-0 Y-0 K-5)
Full blackness is achieved by using only black component (C-0 M-0 Y-0 K-100), no need to use other components
Colour - only CMYK scale in every graphic project. If you want to use spot colours (Pantone, HKS, etc.) you should look for
adequate CMYK representation.
