Determine how many tabs you’ll need by counting the sections in your book. Then choose how many tabs you need per bank.
You may have the option to choose from a few different bank sizes, depending on how many tabs you want total.
If you have eight sections in your book, you could choose five tabs per bank, giving you one complete bank of five tabs, plus one partial bank of three tabs. Or, you could choose four tabs per bank and have two complete banks of four. And finally, you could choose three tabs per bank, giving you two complete banks of three, plus one partial bank of two. The number of tabs per bank will affect the size of the tabs, so the choice is really a design option.
If you choose more tabs per bank, the size of the actual tab will be smaller. If you choose less tabs per bank, the size of each tab is larger.
Select either full-color book tabs or black-and-white book tabs.
Supply the copy to be printed on each custom book tab.
For example, the tabs for this cookbook are listed here:
- Main Courses
- Side Dishes
- Vegetarian Dishes
- Cocktails / Drinks
We'll put your tabs together according to your instructions and include a PDF of the tabs along with your PDF proof for approval.
Note: When laying out your book, keep in mind that each tabbed divider page will need to be a right-hand (odd-numbered) page. Contact us and speak with our expert pre-press team for help.
