Printed Books (SEs)

Printed Books Standards

Printed books come on a variety of materials, ranging from customized propietary texturized paper to fine arts print paper, including forgery-proof paper. Books are printed either using digital or offset printing systems, depending on the specific title to be reproduced.

In some cases we use non-standard self-formulated liquid inks which are then applied on the respective substrate using a technique that guarantees an homogenous color application. Color characteristics and ink stability is certified by the QA department.

High quality machinery and procedures are used all along the production process up to the final cutting and binding. When third-parties are required for a specific book, we rely only on PSO-certified partners. Process Standard Offset (PSO) is the description of a standardized method for the production of printed products for industry application and complies with the international ISO 12647 standard series.

Please feel free to contact us in case you need more details about our production standards.
