Booklets and brochures offer 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 product 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. We recommend keeping Stapled Brochures and Booklets under 50 printed pages to make sure your pages lie flat and look as professional as possible.
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.
Both our Stapled and Perfect Bound Brochures come in six sizes, so there’s plenty of options for you to find the perfect size.
A6 Brochures are perfect for handy mini-guides and compact instruction manuals
A5 Booklets are a popular choice for recipe collections, menus or product catalogues since they are small enough to pop in your bag with plenty of room to experiment with design
A4 Booklets have ample room for all the information you want to get across. Play around to find the perfect format since there’s plenty of space for a dramatic, informative and gorgeous brochure
We have two sizes of Square Booklets, 140mm and 210mm which are ideal for estate agency booklets, programmes or corporate magazines
DL Brochures are our sleekest option, with a slim line shape for a professional flair and elegant finish
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.
