Pages (Inside)

Select the number of inner pages for your printing project here. The number of pages must always be dividable by 4. Please submit individual pages only (1,2,3...n). These should be in sequence in a PDF file or also in individual PDF files, but in this case, saved with number filed names (PG01.PDF, PG02.PDF, PG03.PDF... PGn.PDF).

Many layout programs work with double-sided view. However the export must still be done with single pages. please refer to our graphic example of a 16-page brochure. We will appropriately arrange the pages for you for the printing process.

Did you know? The Latin term for page number is Pagina (the page), hence the term Pagination (page numbering). The pagination of a written document is usually positioned in the header or footer sections of the page. For aesthetic reasons, the numbers on specific pages, such as the table of contents or title page, are left out. Also on vacant pages or empty pages, the page number is usually omitted.

Here you have the option of selecting a refinement variation for your printed object.

Refinement refers to the visual enhancement of a printed product.
Depending on the type of refinement, this will be done either during the printing process in the printing machine (for example, matt or glossy water-based paint, UV paint) or applied subsequently in the form of a coating (matt or glossy film lamination, foliation).
Many of our products are available with optional refinements such as water-based paint, film lamination and UV paint.

Single-sided or double-sided finish:
During single-sided finishing (UV varnish or film lamination), it is always the front that is processed. Therefore, the correct page order in your master PDF (page 1 = front, page 2 = back) is important. If you are sending single files, be sure the files are named accordingly and clearly. The double-sided finishing process concerns both sides.

UV varnish:
UV coating is a lacquer which hardens instantly under the effect of UV light. It results in an abrasion-resistant, hard, high-gloss surface, which can sustain heavy mechanical stress. Of course it also serves to visually enhance the printed product. Whether brochures or catalogue covers, post cards, business cards, posters or flyers & leaflets - it will help you to outshine your competitors. Glossy UV coating is a quality-related refinement option and a less expensive alternative to glossy film lamination. Depending on the printed product, UV coating is done directly in the offset printing machine, or applied subsequently in a special refinement machine.

Film lamination:
Film lamination gives printed materials a special finishing touch. We offer this type of refinement in matt or high-gloss finish. It is a film that is mounted and glued on the paper using a special machine.

A film lamination can cause the print inks to look slightly different.

Soft-touch lamination gives printed products a touch of class. Soft-touch laminated surfaces have a velvety texture that make surfaces feel silky smooth to touch. This type of film lamination provides a classy and matt appearance to surfaces.

A film lamination can cause the print inks to look slightly different.
