Booklets are essentially by definition, small books. The booklets we print range in size from 4.25 x 5.5 up to 9 x 12 inches. They can be as simple as merely sheets of paper that are punched and placed in a binder, to more elaborate methods of binding. (holding the pages together)
Our standard booklets are printed on high quality 80# text paper which has a nice page turning feel and also makes colors pop. Although heavier weights of paper are available, 80# text has exceptional opacity so that images on one side can not be seen on the other.
Because we are a digital print shop, orders as small as a single booklet up to a hundred or more are possible.
Types of Booklets:
CATALOGS AND LOOKBOOKS
contains photos and descripions of products
small storybooks, coloring books, etc.
used for companies to brand their business, promoting services and products
guides for conferences and events
reference manuals, workbooks, etc.
Styles of Booklets:
Coiling is a method of binding that is popular for tutorial booklets and calendars, and is a relatively inexpensive way to bind thick volumes containing several pages. Cover stock is optional for the cover and back pages as well as clear vinyl protectors.
SADDLE STICHED (Staple Bound)
Saddle Stitching refers to a very popular book binding method in which folded sheets are gathered together one inside the other and then stapled through the fold line with wire staples. The Saddle Stitch method is most effective for the binding of 64 pages or less. Books with more pages may become bulky when folded and may not lie as flat as desired when Saddle Stitched.
Perfect Binding is a widely used soft cover book binding method. The many soft cover books that you see on the shelves at bookstores are good examples of perfect bound books. They have a square, printed spine and the cover is usually made with cover weight paper. (For orders of 100 or more only)
