Production Lesson(s)

As a self published book I underestimated the amount of time and money needed to produce 15/115 There were a few challenges when printing, for example - when printing a rich black cover on a gravure emboss paper it had to be double hit and even after this there were still a few specs of white showing through, secondly when foiling the cover, as the paper had a texture it meant it was a lot harder to achieve a crisp edge to the foil. I spent a lot of time liaising with both the printer and the paper merchant, testing papers and discussing print techniques. I believe this was time well spent as when it came back from print it was everything I had hoped for and more.”
