BIC’s Colour Book Production Explained Course

Purpose of the Course
Focusing on the print and binding process alongside colour theory and paper, this is a great introduction to colour book production.

The course has a practical emphasis, ensuring that all theoretical elements are accompanied by an on-site demonstration. For this reason, each section of the course contains a problem-solving element, to enable delegates to gain an understanding of the potential pitfalls, how to avoid them and how to spot them if they do occur.

Benefits of Attending
Delegates will spend time in Bell & Bain’s press-room and bindery, seeing first-hand how books are produced and learning how to use this knowledge in their day-to-day role. The practical elements of the course will help to bring the theoretical course content to life.

This course will provide delegates with the tools to be proactive in their role, better express their requirements, choose the right supplier for their project, and solve or even prevent problems.

As the factory can be very noisy and to ensure our attendees get the most out of the day, we limit the number of delegates for this course to 6.

Course Level
This course is aimed at those who are, or would like to be, responsible for the production of colour books. It is specifically aimed at those new to colour production, those who have learnt ‘on the job’ and those who would like to develop a deeper understanding of the techniques and processes involved in the manufacture of colour books.

Course Outline
The topics covered will include:

  • The different print processes available and how to pick the right one for your book
  • How colour is printed
  • How an image gets to the page, including conversion to CMYK, screens and ink density
  • How to choose the right proof for your book
  • How to assess paper and chose the right one
  • What impact paper can have on your book
  • How a litho press is made ready and how to press pass a book
  • The different types of binding, their characteristics, limitations and how to choose the right one for your book
  • What finishes are available and how are they applied
  • How a print price is constructed and how to request a quote
  • How to produce co-editions
