Printing from Artwork
I am often asked "How do I print my Bookplate, now I have received my artwork from an artist?"
There are three alternatives available to you in terms of quality!
If you have a printer attached to your computer and are happy that your scanner/printer will produce the quality of detail your art work contains then it is simply a case of purchasing A4 sheets of self adhesive paper and fitting as many bookplates on a sheet as you comfortably can, allowing a little white space around each bookplate , then cut them out.
If you feel you can't get a satisfactory result from your own printer then you should take your artwork along to a professional printing office. Professional scanners cross the image at least six times picking up fine details of line and colour that our home printers are incapable of. Having scanned your image you can have them computer printed on self adhesive paper or a paper of your choice, adding a glue to them when required.
The final option is the 'gold standard.' Once your art work has been professionally scanned a plate can be made of the image and it can now be letterpress printed (ink on paper). The printed paper should of course be acid free. Acid free glue is also available for later fixing.
