Personal Consulting Service

Team brandbook

brandbook doesn’t have telephone announcements, no hotlines, no … then please press 1. Each client has their personal contact person – from the first idea to the complete book.

Producing books is our passion – it connects us with each other and makes us a good functioning team. Challenge us with your ideas and concepts: the wilder, the more exciting. And if we are at our wit’s end with our book printing ideas, you can be assured that we will continue searching until we have found the right solution. If one of us isn’t available at the office in Frankfurt for the moment, then it is because we’re visiting a trade fair to find new materials or new print-, finishing-, or binding methods to constantly extend our product portfolio.
 
Our advisory team consists of colleagues of all subject areas and all directions: graphic designers, book binders, printing engineers, book scientists and art historians. We are all united by our love for the book as an object.

We manufacture books. We support your design. We make it happen.

Sample Service

Yearly, a few hundred sample packages leave our office in Frankfurt. Because books, cover materials and paper have to be experienced in a haptic way.

According to your ideas and customised to your request, we compile an individual selection of cover materials, books and processing examples. If you wish, these samples already exactly match your company colours.

A parcel with samples free of charge – just in time for your business meeting​

If you don’t have clear ideas yet, tell us a little bit about your project. We will put together a package that will surely inspire you. And of course it will arrive just on time for your client presentation or team meeting. 

“Seeking to fascinate your clients, you need to provide them with extraordinary ideas.”

Material Research

Scouting new trends of book design and production is a challenge, which we face daily and which makes us happy. 

Our task is to make the perfect notebook or image book for your company, to research the most appropriate material for it and to give you a recommendation. To choose the most suitable cover material for your individual paper journal production, you either need to check our database of materials, or select one in the book configurator, or speak to one of the brandbook consultants. We’re happy to help. 

After thousands of book productions, we still feel enthusiastic when hot-off-the-press copies come in from production on a daily basis. Then the bookbinding gets stroked, debossings are held against the light, then the pages are turned and bent. Hands stretch the elastic strips to their limits, eyes disappear behind linen testers to check the printing results. Noses sense this wonderful scent mixture of paper, print colour and adhesive, and fingers test the soft haptic of the paper.
 

We may not know and can’t do everything yet, but we certainly know about one thing very well: books.

Layout & Visualisations

Visualisations

brandbook service not only includes a calculation of your individual book production at lightning speed, but also drafting a visualisation or layout.

This facilitates the coordination process and assures you that the book will look just the way you imagined it. Before we start the production of your individual notebook, you’ll receive a visualisation and a dimensioning of your book for verification and approval, so nothing will go wrong. This is featured in brandbook’s free services.

 

Visualisations
  • logo positioning / exact dimensioning of cover debossings
  • visualisation for verification and approval before placing the order
  • individual PDF presentation of your book project

Layout & Calendar Typesetting

Beyond that, we’re happy to support you in creating layouts for your book project. On demand, we will provide drafts for different cover designs according to your ideas, or we will design individual image pages which can be integrated into your paper journal.
Layout
  • layout and preparation of print data for your cover design
  • layout and preparation of print data for the endleaves
  • layout and preparation of print data for individual image pages
  • layout and preparation of print data for notebook grids including your logo
Do you want to integrate an annual, monthly or weekly calendar into your layout? Yet, common standard calendars are incompatible with your corporate design? Then we can offer you a calendar which can be customised according to your corporate identity in terms of typography and choice of colour. So you can save yourself or your agency expensive typesetting work. 
Calendar Typesetting
  • layout for individual calendars with one year overview
  • layout for individual calendars with monthly, weekly, or daily organisation
  • layout for info pages with country-specific public and school holidays
  • layout for info pages with international time zones
  • layout for info pages with trade show dates or events
