Bookbinding Tips for BUDDY's DINER
Step OnePersonalize and Print the number of copies you will want to bind into little books. You can illustrate pages that have a little extra space on them...as well as the backs of any or all of the pages.
Step TwoTrim each half-page into the FIRST trim size sheet you will want to bind. Be sure to leave extra width along the binding edge (usually the left side of the book). Example: First trim size is 5.5" wide x 5" tall. (Final trim will be 5" wide x 4.25" tall.)
Step ThreeCreate a Cover out of heavier paper...decorate and personalize the front.
For a book with an "open spine"...one that shows the pages along the spine of the book, cut the cover the same size as the sheets.
For a book with a covered spine, you will need to create a cover twice the width of the page.
Size: Final height, but TWICE the WIDTH PLUS a small amount for the spine. Example: Use a heavy coated or uncoated cover stock and using the page sizes mentioned in Step Two, cut the cover 4.25" TALL and 11" WIDE.
Step FourSort the pages into order, color any illustrations with drybrush watercolors (too much water can make the wrinkle) or pencils.
Step FiveTo secure the pages together, you can use your choice of several methods.
