If there’s one product from our growing range that we hold a secret torch for, it has to be booklets. Without tooting our own horn, they’re super high quality and the level of precision that goes into making them is pretty impressive! But don't just take our word for it; watch the video and see for yourself!
Booklets have unrivalled space for you to show off your products and services in as much detail as you like. However, with the breadth of size and binding options available, choosing the right brochure can be tricky. We’ve popped all important information below about borders, bleeds, bindings and sizes that you should consider before making a killer booklet!
Stapled Booklets, (sometimes referred to as Saddle Stitched or just Stitched) are bound with a lengthy metal wire similar to how a sewing machine works. The pages are fed into our machines which are “jogged” to ensure all sheets are perfectly aligned. The machine then works its magic and intricately feeds the wire through the sheets until the brochure is neatly sealed together. The wire is then folded to form the “staple” which elegantly binds the booklet together.
This binding method is perfect for magazine printing, prospectuses or small product catalogues and with six different sizes available, there’s something for all businesses. A6 Brochures are compact and convenient whilst A4 Stapled Booklets offer a sumptuous amount of space to present your information. We recommend keeping Stapled Brochures and Booklets under 50 printed pages to make sure your pages lie flat and look as professional as possible.
Perfect Bound Booklets
For the ultimate professional feel, Perfect Bound Booklets will guarantee to impress. We arrange your sheets in line, then glue one side which becomes the spine using PVA glue, which is then wrapped by a secure, strong cover. This binding type is ideal for corporate brochures, prospectuses or larger product and service catalogues thanks to its stylish, neat finish.
The finished product is fundamentally a paperback book, with the spine being thick enough to write on if you want your brochure to stand out on a bookshelf! Our recommendation for Perfect Bound Brochures is always to keep them over 40 printed pages to make the most of the sturdy spine. Again, there are 6 sizes currently available to suit all needs, budgets and sizes.
Choose the Right Size
Both our Stapled and Perfect Bound Brochures come in six sizes, so there’s plenty of options for you to find the perfect size.
Borders and Bleeds
For our booklets and brochures we work within a 7mm “safety zone”. This should be kept clear of text to allow room for the pages to fold, you don’t want any important text hidden behind the spine! This also goes for images which should be kept away from the 7mm safety zone border. When supplying your artwork, especially for Perfect Bound Booklets, its best to check our perfect bound artwork guidelines since each size requires a different specification.
