Acme's on-demand printing and binding service offers a reasonably priced, attractive hard cover binding option that is easy and fast. Our service provides a one-stop solution for high-quality, variable quantity production of hardcover books. Acme has been making books since 1821. In fact our company president, Paul Parisi, is the co-editor of the national standard on Library Binding, ANSI/NISO/LBI Z39.78-2000. Printing Process Description Pages can be scanned from an original copy or you can send in a PDF file. Some some jobs all printing/scanning is to be 600 dpi, 1-bit black and white. If you require grayscale (8-bit) for halftone images or color, please call to get specific instructions for the preparation of your job. All printing uses a digital process. It is possible for us to produce as many copies as you require, plus we can make a PDF DVD as well. We print on 50# and 60# alkaline paper that is designed for use on laser printers. Our paper is natural (cream) or white, acid-free, long-fiber, and will have the grain running in the correct direction to facilitate easy reading. Paper meets the requirements of the ANSI Standard for permanence of paper Z39.49-1992 (R1997). All printing will be duplex (double-sided), unless we are instructed otherwise.
Options Demand bindings can incorporate a preprinted 80# or 100# text weight paper cover which we will film laminate to produce an attractive hardcover book. If printing on a coated paper it must be coated only on one side (C1S). Cover type and art can be handsomely stamped in foil or pigment on a wide range of colored bookcloths. Decorative headbands, printed dust jackets, individual shrink wrapping and/or boxing and fulfillment services-- all are available. Perfect bound paperback binding of digitally printed editions is an available option.
