The Backgate Margin
When designing a book for mechanical binding, an allowance must be made in the gutter (inner margin) for the punched holes.
All About Signatures
Signatures are book pages printed onto one single large sheet, then folded in halves to make up multiple pages of a book.
Avoid Half Holes
Half-holes occur when the bind-edge of a book is punched and the length of the book does not match the punch’s spacing.

There are two ways to assemble a book with covers. By sizing covers correctly we can ensure a speedy and accurate trim.
