Hi there! Print design has always been a mystery to me, but I've finally resolved to learn. Hopefully someone here can help me out.
At the moment I'm creating a small-ish booklet as a student project, probably no more than ten pages or so (possibly less). I'm hoping to create a cover that wraps all the way around similar fashion to this, but first I have a few questions. Is this technique possible and does it have a technical name other than a 'wrap-around cover'? If it is possible, how best to bind the pages (I was thinking saddle-stitch for so few pages)? Also, how do I allow for the thickness of the pages as the cover wraps around? Can gsm be converted in to millimeters of thickness?
Finally if you have any resources you'd recommend for someone new to printing techniques, I'd be glad to hear them! They'd be a great help.
