May 2012 E-Zine (V11#5): Book Production Monday, May 7 2012 

When deciding to produce a full color book, or add a few color pages, remember that placement counts – a color section results in less insertion costs than the same number of pages sprinkled through out a book.

Most printer/publishers can and do provide color work for customers. Color achieved as a result of ink changes or combination ink runs are often priced higher. Depending on the method of reproduction however if you wanted say brown printing on cream paper the ink is still 1 color (brown instead of black) and wouldn’t be charged extra (however the color paper would cost extra). Often color changes are used to highlight certain text areas or for a coat of arms. Should you desire a color photo page, we offer process work. However, it must be pointed out that it is not cost effective on runs less than 500.  We can also have color pages copied or in very small quantities possibly inkjet reproduced for economy.
