Full Size Booklets - Matte
Printing Info & Specs
Printkeg's matte/uncoated 8.5x11 full size booklets are folded and saddle-stitched (stapled) and ideal for catalogs, manuals and workbooks. An elegant feel matched with premium papers and alluring colors ensures Printkeg as the premier destination for booklet printing.
Matte booklets generally feel a little thicker than our gloss companions. The digital printing technique we utilize combined with quality uncoated paper stocks employs a sophisticated and classic matte finish.
We advise that you also order a physical proof.
Custom booklets and catalogs are considered "full bleed" or borderless. White margins are typically preserved unless specified differently by customer. Please allow enough lead time for proofing, set up and production. If you have a tight deadline, please feel free to contact us concerning your project.
Turnaround for matte booklet and catalog printing varies greatly due to variances in setup time, proof times and approval times. We ask customers with strict deadlines to please speak with a Printkeg customer representative, so we can work closely with you to stay on schedule. Please provide a deadline date in the messages field on the above form as well if possible.
Most projects require five business days.
To ensure supreme results, we always urge new customers to order a physical proof for all full size booklet printing. We cannot always guarantee 100% accuracy for orders requesting "no proof," so physical proofs can be very beneficial. Please advise turnaround time begins at the time of the approval of the physical proof.
We recognize some customers do not have the extra time for a physical proof, so a digital proof might be suffice. Please let us know in the messages field above if a digital proof is required. Typically physical proofs are mailed by UPS as soon as art is print ready.
If you do not wish to see any form of proof, the file will be closely analyzed by our designers in the Art Department to ensure quality, resolution and bleed. The Art Department will then place the order into production.
Art can be uploaded above or directly emailed to the Art Department at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your order number as the subject line when emailing files. If your file is too large, you may send us your art via a third party storage app such as Dropbox or Google Drive.
Files can be submitted to us in various ways. Most clients turn art in as a multi-page PDF document with .25” bleed area. Each page should be sized 8.75 x 11.25. The key to well printed books is providing enough bleed/trim area (keep important text and images away from the edge).
Art can also be submitted as multi page documents in spread format. This is an acceptable, and sometimes preferable, method depending on the artwork; however it is not required.
We prefer booklets to be submitted as multipage files with a .25” bleed area. Some customers find it easier to submit newsletter/booklet pages individually and numbered. Please name the cover page 1.jpg or 1.pdf. Again, we prefer the pages to be submitted as one document.
