Any tips for designing bound documents?
We may be perfect binding or saddle/wire stitching (staples) your document. Accordingly, there may be a difference in spine widths from what you might expect and it’s wise to design with a view to the creep and bleed implications of your binding. We prefer to calculate any spine widths and then adjust your file for you. To this end you should provide us with your original editable files i.e. InDesign files. Remember to allow for binders creep on all saddle stitched work, otherwise page numbers may be cut off. To play it safe you can centre page numbers and keep a generous side margin on all pages, helping you sidestep both issues.
