Printing Info & Specs
Printkeg's large magazine-style 8.5x11 full-size glossy booklets are folded and stapled and are best suited for custom catalogs, manuals, 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.
Coated papers (gloss) are naturally less expensive than uncoated papers (matte) since they are more popular industry-wide. Choosing between gloss and matte is more about preference and branding.
We advise that you also order a physical proof.
All custom booklets and newsletters are considered "full bleed" or borderless. Learn more by visiting our Support Center. Please allow enough time for proofing and set up. If you have a tight deadline, please feel free to contact us concerning your project.
Turnaround for the glossy booklet and newsletter printing varies significantly due to unforeseen setup time, proof times, and approval times. If you have a strict deadline, we ask that you speak with a Printkeg representative. This step will allow us to work closely with you and remain on schedule. Please provide a deadline date in the messages field above, if possible.
Most projects require five business days.
For maximum quality, we always recommend that you select a physical proof (or order one book before committing to the full project). We cannot guarantee 100% accuracy for orders requesting "proof not required." Please consider extra non-turnaround time for set up, proofing, and shipping.
We understand customers might be crunched for time, so opting for a digital proof might be a better option. Please specify in the "Messages / Deadlines" field above if a digital proof is needed. Please contact us to discuss any stringent deadlines if applicable.
Proofs are produced and mailed by UPS or USPS as soon as the art is print-ready. If you do not choose a physical or digital proof, the file will be evaluated by our staff designers then forwarded to production. We always check files for resolution, quality, and bleed concerns.
Please upload booklet art on this page unless you are sending multiple files or files that are very large. Multiple files or large files should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or delivered via third party storage app such as Dropbox.
Many clients turn art in as a multipage document with .25” total trim (bleed). Each page size should be 8.75 x 11.25. The key to well-printed newsletters and booklets is providing enough bleed area by keeping relevant text and images away from the edges.
Some clients also submit multipage documents in spread format. This format is an acceptable method that is sometimes preferable depending on the artwork; however, it is not necessary or required.
We prefer booklets to be turned in as multipage files with a .25” total trim area. Some customers find it easier to submit newsletter/booklet pages individually and numbered. Please name the cover page 1.jpg or 1.pdf.
"When I misunderstood the production time for my booklets, Kevin and the team ensure they made them on time for my grandmother's 100th birthday. He went from a production time of 4 days to 2 and was flexible with changing the mailing address. Thank you so much. My family loved the booklets. I will definitely use and recommend PrintKeg in the future." - Rosey
"The booklet print quality is very good, the turnaround is quick. Your customer service is responsive to questions and concerns." - Felicia
