Advice on Paper to print a book

  Ex plorer 09:41 10 Oct 2018

Hi i'm having a go at writing a book, I intend to print the book on my printer and bind it. The only thing i am having difficulty with is where to buy the correct paper in A5 sheets. Weight etc. I don't want bright white more off white if possible. I cant find a direct answer on the net, where to buy in the UK. I can cut A4 into A5 if that helps. Cheer's

Books are usually printed on "Unglazed" paper. If you use unglazed paper in an Inkjet, the ink will run.

You will need to use a Laser Printer

Thanks bumpkin I will take a look. Thanks wee eddie never thought of that I was looking for a Matt paper but that's a little different I think.

I use a5 all the time I get it from rymans paper code 0201030516 no bar code on card so go on there site , btw if you look at binders on there site don't go for the cheaper plastic looking one its rubbish get the more expensive metal one , one other thing , ignore the binder packet instructions you wont get the recommended sheets per binder as they tend to jump out and p you off, go for a big scroll

Hi I am looking for a printer that can do double sided printing on A5 paper.

My old Epson XP-610 can print double sided A4 but not A5 unless I turn the page over manually. with nearly 900 pages I don't want to go down that road.

So, an A4 that will do A5 double sided, or a stand alone A5 double sided printer. Mono only is fine.

Anyone point me in the right direction around the £100 mark.

Can you not print them in batches of say 100 then turn them over for the other side.

I suppose much will depend on your Binding Method

with nearly 900 pages

In one book or is that for several copies.

I think if I was wanting such a large amount of printing I would look into getting it done professionally. Someone like Staples have a printing service and it might work out cheaper overall, and you would get a good finished result.
