What’s It Mean?
///////////////////////////////

Fold out (gate fold): Any included material in a book that is larger than the text page. Inclusion in book, by definition, must be printed on oversized paper and folded smaller than finished book size to allow for unfolding.

Watermark: Mark traditionally produced during paper production within the structure of the paper. Digital watermarks may be produced by applying a ghosted mark during the printing process to paper or other media.

Terms marked with an asterisk (*) are not generally used in our office.

Design Inspiration
///////////////////////////////

Considering different formats to your index can make it more user friendly, reduce page count, alter the “flavor” of the index, and more. While it is hoped that all genealogy authors feel and index is required, it shouldn’t be looked at as “something I’ve got to do”. Visit our information page for more examples and ideas.

Book Manufacturing Concepts
///////////////////////////////

Authors, did you know that if you only want a few pages in your book printed in color – say 10 out of a 200 page manuscript, you can order only those pages in color? No longer must they be together or in the front or back to produce this potential vast reduction in cost. Likewise, all your manuscript pages may be in color, but only the page numbers you specify will be printed (and charged) as full color.
