Enter total page count, including covers.

Note: It is recommended to start with the smallest predicted page count and insert new blank pages if the Issue subsequently grows in size. This avoids wasting Page Credits on unwanted pages. 

Step 2 - Enter page count

Step 3

Choose the binding style. Typically, Saddle Stitched (stapled) binding is used for smaller page counts (up to say 68-pages) while Perfect binding is used for higher page counts. Loose Leaf applies to individual printed products such a cooker cards. Binding style is governed by variables such as page count, paper weight, gutter width, double-page spreads and the printer’s binding equipment.
