When creating your book, you are very free with print24k.net. Modern printing technology allows us to print your new Graphic Novel as well as a factual reference for your company’s compliance policy. Whether it’s a yearbook for your school, a novel for self-publishers, music books for musicians or booklets for your own poems, we can professionally put your works on paper. For the individual design of the paperbacks, we offer you a wide range of finishing and design options as well as variants for bookbinding.
We print your books very cheaply on standard offset paper in thicknesses of 80, 90 or 100 g/m². These papers are perfect if you want to create simple notebooks, for example. Offset paper is also suitable for printers and is therefore ideally suited for writing on with ink. If you want to print your poems or a novel, we recommend the wood-free book printing papers. They are particularly durable and available in 80 and 90 g/m² thicknesses.
Coated art papers are suitable for recipe books, illustrated books or other documents with several colour illustrations. These can be selected in 115, 135, 150 or 170 gsm. This paper is available in matt or gloss on request.

You can order the books with sewn or prefect binding. The perfect binding is always the cheaper option and suitable for voluminous books with up to 996 pages. For this purpose, we connect the sides to a book block and apply a special glue to the spine of the book.
The sewn binding is a very stable binding, in which the printed sheets are sewn with bookbinding yarn after folding. Finally, a glue layer is applied to the spine. This technique is mainly used for hardcover books and is available for volumes up to 500 pages. The minimum number of pages is 40 pages for the perfect binding and 48 pages for the sewn binding.
To protect your Hardcover books from dust and wear, we can also insert a headband in the spine. It closes the gap that arises between spine and book block. Headbands in white, blue, yellow, green, red or black are available. On request, we also add a bookmark ribbon. Especially with own novels or longer works the ribbon is a very practical accessory. For the bookmark ribbon, the spine must have a minimum width of 10 mm. If you have opted for a Hardcover, you can optionally also add a dust book jacket. So you can protect your works from dirt and heavy wear and at the same time use a way to further professionalize and customize your book. You can also opt for a colour cover in black, blue, green or red.
Your book is protected by a hard cover whose cardboard core is fully laminated with paper. The contents and the cover are connected by a flyleaf. The book block is optionally produced with PUR gluing technology or thread sewing.
Your book is protected by a hard cover with a cardboard core fully laminated with black linen material. The contents and the cover are connected by a flyleaf.

For printing of books, we rely on classic printing in black or alternatively on the CMYK technique. With it we can also realise coloured pictures or coloured fonts.
So choose CMYK if, for example, you want to print a recipe book, tour guide, comic, or photo book.
On your request you can refine the cover of your paperbacks or Softcover books. A very popular choice is laminating. We apply a foil to the outside of your book. It gives the book additional protection. The “scratch-resistant” version additionally protects your book from scratches on the cover.
In order to make the title page of your work even more appealing, further refinements are available. For example, you can have the title or the name of the author embossed with hot foil. We use foil in silver, bronze, gold, copper, blue or red.
The hot foil embossing can also be combined with laminating. Incidentally, this also applies to the application of UV spot varnish. This can be used to accentuate individual motifs of your cover or title in a very appealing way.
If you opt for a dust book jacket for your hardcover book, we can also refine it for you. We offer the classic lamination with glossy or matt foil as well as scratch-resistant foil and can combine the cellophane wrapping with a hot foil relief embossing on request.
print24k.net offers you the possibility to have your books individually shrink-wrapped. This results in a number of advantages for you and your customers. Your books are protected against dust and dirt during transport and storage. Especially for high-quality hardcover books with refined dust jacket or books with inserts, the additional protection makes sense. Your customers will receive a flawless copy and notice immediately that it is new. This also reduces the return rate due to defects. This amortizes the surcharge and is a worthwhile investment in the protection of your goods.
With lamination, a wafer-thin film is applied to your printed product. This gives the product a higher quality and at the same time makes it more robust.
With this finishing combination, the lamination creates a glossy or matt finishing layer on the entire surface, with individual areas being visually highlighted once
again by the partial varnish.
With this finishing combination, the laminating creates a glossy or matt finishing layer over the entire surface, with individual areas being visually emphasised once again by metallic effects.
