Let Customers Dive into Your Business’ Details With Custom Booklets

Booklets showcase your products in vivid imagery and compelling stories. Every page is an opportunity for customers to know more about your business. Hook them from the beginning with an eye-catching cover and show your first-class products on glossy or elegant matte inside pages. If they can’t finish reading your booklet in one sitting, sturdy binding keeps all the pages together for the next read.

High-quality booklet printing brings all these premium features together. Discover how to customize them for your next magazine, catalog, or company coffee-table book.

Preserve your page-turner on sturdy material

Complement the cover and inside pages of your custom booklets.

A thicker cardstock works best to showcase and maintain the image on your cover. Choose among the following cover stock, arranged from the sturdiest option to the most lightweight and affordable:

14 pt. Matte Cardstock

  • Durability protects it from folding and bending
  • Matte coating gives colors an elegant, soft, muted color

14 pt. Gloss Cardstock

  • Cardstock’s durability keeps your cover looking good as new
  • Gloss coating allows colors to pop out from afar

14 pt. High Gloss UV Cardstock

  • Sturdy cardstock comes with double the shine
  • Colors appear extra vibran

14 pt. Uncoated Cardstock

  • A sturdy cardstock that doesn’t easily bend or fold
  • Uncoated texture allows for writability with a pen or marker on both sides

10 pt. Gloss Cardstock

  • Slightly thicker than the 100 lb. paper
  • Lightweight cardstock brings out the brightness of your cover’s colors

100 lb. Gloss Paper

  • Fine-textured paper that’s sturdier than magazine paper
  • CGloss coating prints your design in vivid colors and adds an extra shine

Inside pages can be printed on extra-thick 100 lb. paper, but other sturdy and lightweight options are also available:

70 lb. Paper Uncoated

  • A thin, lightweight paper stock that’s easy to carry around
  • Smooth writable surface

80 lb. Paper

  • A little thicker and sturdier than the 70 lb. paper
  • Shiny gloss or elegant matte coating on both sides

Keep it compact on an 8-pager or cover multiple angles in a 52-pager

You can print as little as eight pages in a custom booklet, between 16, 20, 24, 36, and up to 52 or 60 pages. All available page counts are divisible by 4.

The total number of booklet pages comes from the cover and inside pages. All booklets come with four cover pages, two for the front and two for the back. Each cover page has an outside cover and an inside cover. Take all these sections into account when planning the pages in your booklets.

Hold all pages together in two sturdy binding options

The two binding options secure all pages in your booklets. Select what suits the number of pages and the final appearance of your design:

  • The saddle stitching method is recommended for 8- to 12-page booklets with lightweight paper for the inside pages. This option uses 2 staples to bind all the pages on the folded spine.
  • Wire-O binding has closed wire loops going through each hole in the inside pages and cover. It is not like spiral binding where there is only one continuous wire going around the holes. It is recommended for thicker booklets (16 pages and up).

Bulk Booklet Printing That Widens Your Reach

Create a booklet your target customers and loyal consumers will want to pick up and read. Every page gives you a chance to tell your brand’s story or show how they can best use their product. Here are some unique ways to take advantage of a booklet’s multiple pages for your marketing:

  • Show, don’t tell. A booklet in letter size or a little larger (at about 9” x 12”) has enough space for a full-page fashion editorial for your apparel items.
  • Share in-depth stories. Devote three to four pages to a cover story that engages your reader. Your booklet will be read because of an enticing cover, so revealing it inside will compel them to know more about your brand.
  • Roll out your annual report in a booklet. Annual reports inform stakeholders and valued clients on the growth and developments in your business. Find out how you can creatively come up with an annual report here.
