Graphic Novel Binding Tutorial. by Null-Entity Graphic Novel Binding Tutorial. by Null-Entity
Ok so here is it, my first tutorial EVER :D.

Not much else to say other than its how I have been making all my books to date.


**Update** for those who have asked about paper specs.

I print my pages at home on 160 gram paper with all my printers settings to max.

And the print shop does my covers on OVERSIZED A3 (very important you need the extra space to be able to trim down).

And we print at 105%.

Their paper is something like 250 gram gloss.



*Just want to say thanks for all the Favs etc I will get round to thanking everyone individually. (I thanked people until DA declaired I must be spamming :P so I'm off to work).

1,500 views in under 10 hours... HOLY CRAP!!!!. :)

this will help when I finish my graphic novel! Question, did you do all your art work digitally? Im planning to do my work traditionally, scanning each page, then printing them, but Im not so sure, and was curious what your opinion on that would be?

Glad it will help, I will admit its NOT my war work, I simply made books of game art for games that went "un-loved" :D

If you can do it digital/at least the colour it would help as scanning always looks bad, you would likely have to re-edit them after anyway.
