4 Considerations When Designing a Custom Printed Coloring Book

Coloring books intended for adult consumers have become increasingly popular in the last few years. Here are some questions you should remember while you design your next custom printed coloring book that will fly off the store shelves.

Coloring books intended for adult consumers have become increasingly popular in the last few years. They are fantastic ways to relieve stress, and in today’s ever-increasingly stressful world, we understand that everybody could do with a healthy outlet. Here are some questions you should remember while you design your next custom printed coloring book that will fly off the store shelves.

How Is It Bound?

No matter what type of book you set out to create, the binding is crucial. While most coloring books are bound via a method known as saddle-stitching, we recommend the perfect binding method. If you need your custom printed coloring book to be longer, with many more pages, perfect binding is the way to go. The pages and the spine of the book are held together by high-quality adhesive. The other sides of the book are then cut and shaped, so they are given a clean, or “perfect” look. In case you would like to include text on the spine of the coloring book, you can achieve that effect through perfect binding.

How Many Do You Need?

Next, you should consider how many custom printed coloring books you need in the current print run. Offset printing may be more expensive, but for print runs of five hundred units or more, the costs will go down significantly. You’ll also find that inking the pages becomes much more affordable, as well.

How Many Pages Are There?

Don’t forget to factor in how many pages your custom printed coloring book will be. How many pages you need, along with how many books you want, will help determine how much paper will be needed to produce your custom printed coloring book. Just remember that a sheet and a page are not the same!

What Ink Is Being Used?

As important as color is on the cover, it is also critical to the interior design of the book. Even though the shapes and lines inside the book itself will most likely be set in black or grayscale ink, you will want to be sure you have enough ink to make the lines clear enough to see.
