Hand work means that human hands are need to complete a project, in other words, the work could not be finished by a machine.

Usually, this type of specialty (manual work) is in children’s book printing.  Board book printing is the highest requirement in hand work requests.  Publishers request die-cut the book into a shape, a lift-the-flap books, insert of fuzzy, slick, rough material describing the story line.
