If you are a cartoonist or a comic book writer, then you have landed on the right page. In this blog, I’m going to talk to you about four major comic book printing mistakes that people often make. As we all know, comic book is all about presentation and fun colors.

That does not mean you shouldn’t pay heed to the illustrations and content. The characters must be engaging as well. But what gives life to the characters is the right kind of comic book printing services.

However, there are a lot of comic books out there that do not sell because readers get bored due to the dull and boring printing.

  • Proofing: One of the major mistakes that writers commit is that they don’t pay attention to proofing. It is always important to proofread your book before giving it for printing. Once the printing company sends you the PDF proof by email, make sure you proofread it at least twice. I would ask you to get it proofread by some friends as well.
  • Choosing a random printing company: Secondly, a major mistake that people commit is that they do not check the reputation and credibility of the company before hiring them. If you want to print your own comic book the right way, you must choose the right provider. They will help you bring alive your artwork.
  • Not paying attention to the book cover: As they all say, the first impression is the last impression. This is the reason why you must work really hard on the cover illustration.

It should be exciting to look at. Choose pop colors for it!

The cover is the first thing about your book that potential readers will notice. Take time to design an attractive-looking cover. Go for a printing service provider that provides matt cover with a high gloss UV coating as well.

It will all depend on the theme and your personal choices.

  • Not reading the instructions: When you are ordering the printing work online, it is very important for you to follow the online instructions. Always go for companies that offer full in-house productions so that you can give them a clear idea about what you want.

And while selecting the size, cover option, inside pages’ option, and the artwork, make sure you read every line. Read all the steps that are mentioned on the website. So these are a few things you need to keep in mind while ordering comic book printing services.
