Budget Black & White Wire-Bound ManualsWith wire binding being one of our most popular methods of binding, black and white printing is also favoured amongst manual manufacturers. Our budget black and white manuals are perfect for your instruction manuals, training manuals, and ideal for large runs where there is no need for colour.
We print onto an 80gsm paper and bind with a durable wire. These manuals are a cost-effective solution for schools and organisations where pricing is one of the main factors when producing literature. We can add coloured covers for you even though your inner pages are black and white.
Black and white printing is a cost-effective method that will help you in the long-run, especially when your materials go out of date more often than usual. Coupled with our wire-bound option, these manuals are easy to read as they lay flat and adding tabs makes it easy to find chapters and sections.
PDF FilesHigh resolution (300dpi) files are the best for us to work with. Please see the settings below to get the best quality printing.
- Resolution: Choose High Resolution
- Compression Settings - For colour and greyscale this should be downsampled to 300dpi with "auto compression" set on high
- Font Embedding - Should be set to "embed all fonts"
- Colour needs to be set as CMYK
- Please supply 3mm bleed around your artwork.
- Please ensure that the colour is set to CMYK, not RGB.
- Please provide crop marks around all your supplied artwork.
Microsoft Office FilesWe cannot print straight from the following programmes. However, we can save a PDF file and re-send back to you for proofing.
Please note: It is important when supplying a PDF from a Microsoft Office application, that extra care is taken to ensure any spot colours are created correctly in your original document/file.
Please supply a screenshot of your Microsoft Office file before conversion. You can do this by following the instruction below for both Mac and PC.
Mac: Press 'Command' + 'Shift' + 3 for a full screenshot, or 'Command' + 'Shift' + 4 to select an area to screenshot. This will save a PNG file to your desktop.
PC: There is a key on your keyboard that says 'Print Screen'. You can then paste this into a document or email to send over.
