Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another flawless transaction Job: reprint of updated brochure - and PrintPlace handled it perfectly once again! We uploaded via their website and it turned out that we needed some help with getting our imaging to register properly for bleed - which was quickly resolved by phone. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Customer Service I placed this order and then went out of town. Glenn is my CSR. Although we are across the country from one another, he checked my job personally and raised a flag. He called to be certain of the specs before proceeding. That truly built my confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely incredible customer service and quality I really have to say, I wish there were more than 5 stars. PrintPlace.Com went WAY above and beyond to ensure that my brochures were delivered to me by the time I needed them for a one-night only special performance. Not only did the order get to me on time (which was in jeopardy due to a horrible screw up by DHL and USPS that had nothing to do with PrintPlace) thanks to the actions of their customer support team, but the folded brochures looked simply amazing. PrintPlace's print vibrancy and color matching of my files was perfection - I've experienced serious color mismatch when printing with PP's major competitors, as well as really dark prints. PrintPlace's prints look exactly like my computer monitor come to life. The whole PrintPlace experience is as close to a perfect customer experience as I've ever had.

Print Brochures With Well-Organized Designs

Brochures are timeless promotional tools. A captivating brochure design can inform and convince someone to finally make that purchase.

Putting together a professional brochure involves much dedication and several steps within the process. Even though brochure printing is the last in line for the entire process, you need to know beforehand what decisions will be involved as they affect the design. Before you begin the layout, use this guide as a reference for your brochure printing decisions.

Size

Decide which size you want your brochure to be. If you change your mind, be sure to make the changes yourself rather than asking a printer to resize it for you. Designing on the wrong size causes the end result to be stretched or important information to be cut off. 

Standard brochures are 8.5” x 11” but other sizes include 11" x 17", 11" x 25", or you could go smaller with a 4.5" x 5.5".

Brochure Folding Options

  • The half-fold brochure is folded in half, creating a total of four panels, with two on each side of the paper. 
  • The trifold brochure can break down information into different sections. 
  • The z-fold brochure can unveil an engaging infographic or several design elements. 
  • The gate fold has two front panels that open up to reveal the third.
  • The double parallel fold has four vertical panels you can use to expound on several product lines. 
  • The accordion fold unravels like the instrument, enabling customers to read all four panels as a whole. 
  • The roll fold is popularly used by retail stores, hospitals, and hotels. 
  • The double gate fold is similar to the gate fold but with more room for visuals.
  • The French fold provides four equal panels that unfold into a large image

Template

Using a template will ensure that you design on the correct size and include the correct bleed specifications. Visit the Layout Templates tab to download the correct template so that important text and images aren’t cut out when you submit the final artwork for your brochure.

Artwork

Your graphics need to be the correct resolution to avoid a fuzzy appearance. Use a resolution of at least 300 dpi for the best results. When saving your brochure to a different file format, double-check your file resolution to make sure that they remain the same.

Colors

The colors that you use can vary greatly from their appearance on your computer screen to the printed page. Purchasing a printed color chart for CMYK and PANTONE colors will help you know exactly the color tone you will get in your brochure. If this is not an option for you, calibrate your design program with your monitor using software available online.

A Variety of High-Quality Paper and Cardstock

Choose from a wide range of lightweight paper and durable cardstock for your brochures:

70 lb. Paper Uncoated

  • The lightest among the paper and cardstock options
  • Comes with a smooth, writable surface
  • Arrives scored and folded upon delivery

80 lb. Paper

  • Slightly thicker than 70 lb. paper
  • Gloss or matte coating on both sides
  • Arrives scored and folded upon delivery

100 lb. Paper

  • Fine-textured and sturdier than magazine paper
  • Easy to hand out and keep for future reference
  • Elegant matte or vibrant gloss coating on both sides
  • The go-to choice for brochures sent in the mail
  • Arrives scored and folded upon delivery 

14 pt. Cardstock Uncoated

  • Sturdy cardstock that is resistant to folds and creases
  • Writable with a pen or marker on both sides
  • Does not arrive folded but comes with scoring 

14 pt. Cardstock

  • Durable cardstock and resistant to folds and creases
  • Shiny gloss coating or a subdued matte 
  • Available in extra-shiny high gloss on both sides or on one side with a gloss coating at the back

16 pt. Cardstock

  • Slightly thicker and heavier than the 14 pt. cardstock
  • Extra weight gives your business added credibility
  • Add matte or gloss coating on both sides

Good to Know

Folding: Print your brochures on lightweight paper stock or thick cardstock. All paper stock and 10 pt. cardstock brochures are folded before delivery. Both 14 and 16 pt. cardstock orders are not folded but are scored for folding.

Utility options

If you know that your brochures will be placed in a 3-ring binder, you will want to have them hold-punched. For brochures that include a removable panel, such as a mail order form or discount coupons, don't forget to ask our print experts about perforation options.


Proof

The last step of brochure printing has to do with what type of proof you desire. A proof gives you the opportunity to check for typos and correct alignment of text and images. You can have a PDF proof sent to you for review before we proceed with printing.

Q&A

What is the difference between the 10 pt. and 14 pt. cardstock? 
The 10 pt. cardstock is heavier than paper stock, with a thickness of 0.010”. This material is also used for business cards and postcards.

The 14 pt. cardstock is made out of cardboard paper and has a thickness of 0.014”. It is similar to the paper used on folders.

What does “scoring” mean and how is this different from folding? 

Scoring creates a crease in the paper to indicate where the fold should be. It serves as a guide for folding the brochure neatly.

Which orders are delivered folded and which ones come scored but not folded?
All paper stock and 10 pt. cardstock orders come scored and folded. All 14 pt. cardstock orders come scored but not folded, so customers will have to fold these themselves.

How should I organize my brochure?
Use the panel number to guide you through designing and organizing the information on your brochure. The first panel serves as your cover and should include your company name and logo. The second to third or fourth inner panels will discuss your business using visuals and engaging copy. Place all your contact information on the outermost back panel.

What are the most popular folding options and their best uses?
Trifold brochures can break down important information in three different sections. The French fold gives you four equal panels that unfold into a larger space that can fit a map or several schedules for a convention or week-long event. The accordion fold unravels like the instrument, enabling customers to read all four panels as a whole.
