How to Print my own BookCan I print my own book?
Printing and binding a book
This tutorial shows you how to print and design your own hardcover book. Why make your own book then? They can be printed out and simply reread if you wish. So if you're like me and want to keep the book you are reading, or just want something better than a pile of A4 pages stitched together, then a book is made for you.
But the other is that they can be quite costly, especially if they are out-of-print. Even tying your own book is a great deal of pleasure, because you can create it yourself! First book I made is fine, but I made a few novice errors.
I was able to complete the second book much better with only a few small changes to the game. I' ve added a few hints throughout the course - these are the little things that will help you make a great book. You can find some free printable textbooks on some sites.
Or you can just perform a simple book quest, and sometimes you are fortunate and a PDF will be available. Carton - This is used for the envelope The best greeting cards are stiffer, thicker cards that you can buy in the arts trade.
Fabrics - Any old curtaining will do. Save any book and you will note that its not just a bunch of pages that have been collapsed and glued together. The pages are pleated, but they are created in signature. A book consists of any number of bookmarks.
The use of signature makes the pages quite even. This also makes the book more readable, as the pages open better. HINT - There are applications online that you can get to create a signature, but I couldn't get them to work. When you can't get your printers to sign, you may be luckier with this website than I am.
So, you don't have to do much to create the signature, because your computer and your computer do all the work. The first image - select your book. But the one I wanted to print was. You' ve just finished printing your book, it's stitching them together!
Be sure to give each wrinkle a good wrinkle, but not too much. Then stitch along the pleat. There is no need to stitch the whole pleat - as you can see from below, there is a 30-40mm crack at each end. TIP: If you find it difficult to see the pleat while stitching - pull a weak line with a gray crayon.
After sewing, apply some force to the pleats to provide a good kink. First, you need a way to keep all your handwritten documents together. It is simplest to use a few wooden parts and a vise. Or you can just use a few clips and some timber.
Place all markings so that the spikes are even. Ensure that all signs are in the right place before gluing - you don't want any upside-down or the pages in the incorrect order. Apply some adhesive. Adhesive should be acid-free, ph-balanced and elastic.
Every shop that deals in scrarapbook materials has this kind of adhesive. Adhesive must be applied over the entire back, but not too thick as it should not run. This should be as long as the book and about 60mm in width. Put some adhesive in the center and fix it to the vertebra.
Slightly press along the spinal column and make sure that the material touches all parts of the back. HINT - Don't overdo it with the adhesive - you don't want it dripping on the blade that holds the number. Simply make sure that all seams are covered with adhesive.
Now we have to remove the lid. You can buy the best kind of paperboard in a handicraft shop. So I opted for a case of printing-media. Slice out your carton. You can use the book as a model to find out how big it needs to be.
I' ve made my sleeve about 15mm bigger than it had to be. HINT - I put 15mm around the first book, but for the second I adapted the front page better to the book itself, which I thought was better. In order to guarantee a good bending in the carton for the back, I used the bottom and the side of the carton.
That gave me a pre-made pleat. Then all you have to do is insert another one to supplement the vertebra. Grasp a metallic straightedge to make the pleat. It has a shallow, even rim that works perfect. Using a mallet, beat the straightedge to the side until you have a fold in the box.
Close the cover plates and make sure that the back bends as desired. HINT - This part is really important - you want to make sure you have a good thick fold on both sides of the box. If you want to get a flat line, the best way is to put one on the box.
When finished, turn the carton to the right so that it is in the middle, and do it the other way round. Repeat a few strokes until the top surface is level. When you have trimmed your binding and the back is wrinkled, you must next include the canvas.
Slice out the material you have chosen. But you can use anything you have at your fingertips. It should be bigger than the upholstery as shown below. Apply aerosol glue to fix the board to the cloth. When it is slippery, put some extra lightness into the box to make sure the cloth remains slick.
Apply the adhesive so that it completely overlaps the material and folds it over. Top and bottom are stuck together after the book itself has been stuck in place. First of all, place the covering down evenly. Trim and secure 2 lugs each on the upper and lower lugs as shown below.
Ensure that the cloth has been inserted into the pleats. Next, apply some adhesive to one of the cloth flaps of the book and stick it to the bind. It' important to have the lid at this point so that you are done; the lid can open even.
When you don't have it level when sticking the book on, you may notice that the book does not open evenly, which is important when you read the book. Put some adhesive on the other side and stick it on. Finally, stick in the upper and lower flap. Place some sheet of hardcover between the envelope and book, front and back, and insert a few heavier ones at the top of your book.
Finally, you need to stick a front envelope and a few pages on the inner envelope. Printing and cropping an image of the front envelope. No need to use the ones included with the book - own prices and pictures etc. The next step is to mask the box on the inside of the envelope.
I' ve only used a few pictures I found on the web and pasted them in. Apply the adhesive to both the front and inner pictures. The next thing I want to do is make a thumbnail book - maybe one with empty pages.
