Booklet Printing

Booklet Printing

We're incredibly proud of our booklet printing service. It's rare to find an online print company offering low runs of such beautiful custom booklets so inexpensively. One more notable advantage of our booklet printing service is our staff's dedication to working with customers closely to meet deadlines and produce an incredible product. Printing any amount of booklets can be scary and nerve-wracking, which is why we work closely with you. Our staff remains committed to project timelines and assist in detecting quality concerns quickly.

Full-Size Booklets 

Our most popular size, full-sized booklets, are 8.5" x 11". Two premium paper options and upgraded covers make these magazine-style booklets exquisite. We also boast a convenient minimum order of only one book. 

Half Size Booklets 

Our economical half-sized 5.5" x 8.5" booklets are more suitable for workbooks, playbills, and guides. These little guys print on gloss or matte paper stock with upgraded covers available. Turnaround time usually consists of only a few days.

Calendars 

Calendars are perfect for the holidays as gifts. These 28-page booklets are full-sized booklets with an upgraded cover. Create your custom calendar or send the art to us to handle. We can take your pictures and attach them to our calendar template if you do not have your own completed file. 

Comic Books 

A staff favorite, comic books (6.75" x 10.25" or 7" x 10.25") are a joy to print. The variety of sequential art by talented artists passing through our doors each week is simply incredible. Gloss and matte paper types available, but gloss is the most popular.

Incredible Value

As you can see, booklets come in many sizes: full size (8.5" x 11"), half-size (5.5" x 11"), calendars (8.5" x 11") and comic books (traditionally 7" x 10.25"). Booklets are folded and stapled and work best for catalogs, guides, playbills, magazines, and programs. When considering our fast turnaround, professional quality control, and premium printing, Printkeg offers the lowest prices for small runs of booklets anywhere.

 


 

Let's Talk About Art Setup

Setting up booklets for printing is an entirely different beast than products like flyers or posters. Try not to become overwhelmed with this aspect of booklet printing. However, there are few things to think about before printing.

  1. Resolution - Like all of our other products, we recommend 300dpi. The text will appear crisper if your booklet takes advantage of 600dpi. However, most people turn in booklet files at the 300dpi. Anything less may result in blurriness.
  2. Color Mode - Our staff prints all booklets in CMYK color mode. We stick to the "all-purpose" "US Web Coated (SWOP)" color profile, which is available in Adobe software. If you do not understand this jargon, do not worry about it. We convert everything. If you are not in a hurry, we recommend ordering a single booklet print before making a large order. A digital proof is not nearly as helpful as a tangible booklet in your hands.
  3. Bleed Area - Every booklet product on our website provides details about page sizes. Be sure to give us a quarter-inch bleed area on each page. For example, each page in a full-sized booklet should be 8.75 x 11.25" not 8.5 x 11." Do not add trim marks to your file.
  4. Arranging Pages - You can provide files to us as multi-page documents, individual files, or as spreads. Learn more about arranging booklet pages on our blog. We prefer multi-page documents in numerical order.

If you are confused, don't worry! Most software takes care of the complicated stuff. We invite you to contact us regarding your next booklet project if you still have questions.
