DESIGN / The first step in the book design process is to match each client's vision with the proper aesthetic materials. Our studio stocks a multitude of book cloth, leather, and paper samples for creating the structure of our books and boxes. The second step is to evaluate the layout and formatting requirements of the project. We are happy to work from previously designed layouts or design them from scratch.
PRINT / Our book pages are made from bound pigment prints (giclée prints), which are created using archival inks on a range of 100% cotton archival paper stocks. They are the same fine-art grade as those used for museum prints, with smooth, continuous tones, on a surface that is more elegant, albeit more delicate than commercial counterparts.
BIND / Our extensive knowledge of binding styles and structures means we can offer a wide range of options to produce our books and boxes. Our bindings traverse the gamut of traditional to contemporary, including lay flat bindings ideal for portfolios and presentations.
DEBOSS / Uncommonbindery offers custom title/graphic debossing services. Our stamping may be executed blind (no color) or in a variety of foil colors (including silver, gold, black, etc) and takes our projects to the next level.
