What are your mono and color options?

By on May 26th, 2015 in

For POD, PG is able to do full and split color or black print. We are able to insert color anywhere in a book. For OFFSET – the color insert must fall between web signatures; unless it is a T4S book; then we can hand insert after trimming.
