We offer catalogs in 1 color, 2 colors or full color quality printing? Most catalogs are saddle stitched (2staples) but we can also perfect bind the pages into a book format. Our graphic designer can assist you in creating a professional looking booklet you can be proud of. When we do booklets in full color we provide you with color proofs to sign off on to insure that you will get what you want.
Most popular Booklets/Catalogs
The most popular booklet size is the 8.5 x 11 and the 5.5 x 8.5. Most full color catalogs are printed on 100# coated gloss/matte book weight and most 1 and 2 color catalogs are printed on 60# offset paper.
Remember that all catalogs page number should be able to divide by 4 since every sheet of paper when folded creates 4 pages.
Pricing of booklets and brochure are influenced mostly by colors of ink and the number of pages printed. Self-cover catalog (when inside pages and cover pages are same paper kind and weight) are more economical. When creating booklets for 1 or 2 color printing to keep prices down it is best not having images go to edge of the paper (nobleeds). With full color printing it does not matter.
It is a good idea to allow 5-7 working days for printing catalogs. Most of the time we can do the job in less time but it is not always possible.
