Purpose of the Course
Aimed at everyone who would like to gain an understanding of the book production process, this course helps delegates to understand the manufacturing processes, their limitations / constraints, as well as how to build communication and understanding between different departments.
Benefits of Attending
The course will help delegates answer the eternal questions:
- Why does it take that long and cost so much?
- Why doesn’t the printed image look like my screen / print out?
- What do production teams need to know?
- Why do we use that paper / that provider?
- Why do eBooks take so long to produce?
No prior experience or knowledge in this field is necessary in order to attend.
This seminar-based course will cover the following topics:
- Things to consider at the concept stage
- Introduction to pre-press
- Paper, binding and cover finishes
- Shipping and warehousing
- The practicalities of production
