Overall colors: Even if you don’t have a full color budget, you can consider color on a bigger scale.  What colors of cover are offered and what colors of imprint are included in the base price?  What colors of end sheets and text paper can be used economically?

Standard and deluxe hardbinding carries a foil imprint.  Don’t overlook the fact that you can choose gold or silver at no extra charge.  Many times bronze is also available for no extra cost.  Special foils such as holographic, or colors are available at extra charges.
