After checking the blue proof and making the printing plate, the custom notebooks are ready to be print. The production team will choosing the printing machine according to the color requirements (we have one color printing machine, two color printing machine, four color printing machine and eight color printing machines, and all of them are Heidelberg machines from German, which is the most famous printing machine brand in printing industry), and then the custom notebooks will be print, if the cover need to be with the special surface finish likes embossing/stamping/UV, it will be done after printing.
