UV coating is a highly protective, ultra-shiny gloss coating that we apply and then cure on a special machine using ultraviolet light. The solvent-free UV coating provides an extremely hard finish that’s chemical and abrasion resistant. It makes details really pop! On deep colors, it results in a stunning, almost wet appearance. Perfect when you want an environmentally-friendly and durable piece with a richer, high-end look and feel.
Prime Source can bind saddle stitched books in house. When giving us specs on a booklet, reference the finished size when folded and the number of pages. Page count is the total pages including the front and back cover. If the book is going to have the same stock throughout then call it a self cover. If the cover is going to be a 111# Gloss cover and the guts are 80# gloss text then call it a plus cover (8 page guts plus cover would be total of 12 pages).
Tri-fold, Z-fold, Bi-fold, Gate Fold. Always reference the size as finished size after folding. 8.5 X 11 tri-fold would be 3.66 X 8.5 finish size.
Always reference the finished size of the piece. Prime source will always gang (run the job multiple up) to save the customer money.
