School exercise book printing calculated with this online tool:

This calculator allows to estimate the cost of making standard 165x205 mm exercise books for school and college students. We only use high-quality materials to produce school exercise books, their internal blocks are made of offset paper, the cover is high-grade and allows for additional post-printing finishing.

Specifics of the exercise book printing process

The production of exercise books uses modern printing technologies on web and sheet-fed presses and high-quality materials satisfying the highest customer's requirements and complying with production standards.

There are three options of exercise book binding, namely stapling, coiling and hard cover. Stapling is used to print large exercise book circulations within extremely tight time limits as the press renders finished products packed in film.

For coiled or hard-cover exercise books another technology with long post-printing process is used. The lead time for coiled or hard-cover exercise books is subject to additional negotiation.
