The Harrier Spine Calculator has been designed to allow you to work out the spine widths for your product in order to supply your artwork correctly.

Select the text material shown on your quote in the Product Code box above. Then enter the number of pages (1 leaf equals 2 pages) and the spine width will be displayed.

Tick the case bound book if your product has a hard cover.

Please note that we cannot PUR bind a text block that is less than 2mm thick and the minimum spine for a Hardcase cover is 7mm

When designing your cover & spine please allow for a small amount of movement during the printing & finishing processes.
