For Griffin Press to provide you with an economical quote, and to maximise your manufacturing dollar we will ask you to work your extent into a multiple of 16pp. (The exceptions to this are listed below).
You may be used to working with half and even quarter sections of 8pp and 4pp but in web offset these are costly options and do not take advantage of the web offset production environment. Half and quarter page sections also incur additional waste and a significant amount of paper is lost in cutting down reels to accommodate these options. So please when preparing your text work in a 16pp multiple even if it means a blank page or two at the back of the book, in fact use these pages for some marketing material. And should you be able to work your text into a multiple of 96pp then you will find this the most cost effective way to print with us (ie 96pp, or 192pp or 288pp etc).
C+ Trim size of 234 x 180mm (or 234 x 175mm). The additional width in this trim size brings the section back to multiples of 12pp.
Digital Print: If your book is going to stay in the digital environment then 4pp multiple is ideal.
