Bleeds for inside block
Bleeds are the printed areas of the sheet that extend beyond the edge of the planned publication and will be cut off during printing processing. The block's net format equals the format you want to get. The gross block format is the format before cutting, i.e. before bleeds are removed.

Inside block without bleeds is when no objects in the design will be printed to the edge of the sheet.

Book specification
Inside block printing type
The option is designed for printing books with a lot of difficult graphics and for small and very small print runs. Suitable for all types of graphics, especially desirable for difficult work, with lots of illustrations, large area solids, etc. High density printing, very black, darker colours than in offset printing. The edges of the mark observed by the microscope are very sharp. It is suitable for printing on all papers we use from 70 gsm.
Level of Ink coverage
The work contains mainly text, charts and tables. Single, small photos are also acceptable. The option also applies to 2+2 printed works (from the CMYK palette). Total coverage with colours up to 20% counted within the ordered format.

Book edge printing
Block edge printing is done in CMYK with pigment inks.

Prepare the design in three PDF files per the rule: one PDF is one surface. Remember to include 3 mm bleeds and an offset tolerance of up to 1 mm between the cover and the printed edge.

Wrap graphics around the entire book, give an impressive position to the typography or extend the illustration from the cover. Edge printing is a fascinating and unconventional solution that thrills readers.
