Push Print

This seminar on design for lithography print was helpful in terms of how to communicate with printers, different types of binding and paper stocks.

Types of bind:

  • Perfect bound
  • Saddle stitched – stapled
  • Exposed binding – opens out perfectly
  • Square bound

Paper merchants:

  • G.F Smith
  • Fenner paper
  • Fedrogoni
  • Robert Horn
  • Independent paper
  • Dixon & Roe


  • Ask for a quote by a specific date – ASAP is not specific.
  • Title of work
  • Format
  • Size
  • How many colours? Any pantone colours?
  • Stock
  • Finishing
  • Quantity
  • Mention budget – printers can advise about stock, finishing to keep within budget.
