Half Size Booklets - Glossy
Half Size Booklets - Glossy
Printing Info & Specs
Half size booklets are folded and stapled and are intended for catalogs, pamphlets, playbills and programs. We focus on speedy turnaround times, professional quality control methods and premium printing expertise. Printkeg provides a valuable solution for small runs of booklet printing.
Our gloss papers (coated) 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 strongly advise that customers order a physical proof.
All custom booklets, playbills and newsletters are considered "full bleed" or borderless. White margins present in artwork are always preserved. 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 half size booklet and playbill orders varies greatly due to unknown setup times, proof times and approval times. We ask customers with strict deadlines to please communicate 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 above when possible.
Typical turnaround time is five days which doesn't begin until art is approved.
To obtain five-star results, we advise customers to order a physical proof of their half size booklet or playbill. Especially when ordering large quantities, being able to hold a sample book in your hand will eliminate any concerns you may have. If you have time to spare, a physical proof is very helpful. Turnaround time does not start until the physical proof is approved.
In the event you do not have time for a physical proof, a digital proof is a better way to have a final look at your art before going to production. The Art Department will email a PDF proof for your approval. Please let us know in the above "Messages / Deadlines" field if a digital proof is necessary.
If your art is 100% ready to go, there might not be any need for a proof. Our designers will always check your artwork to ensure quality, resolution and bleed.
Please upload booklet and playbill art on this page unless you are sending multiple or huge files. These files can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or delivered via third party storage app such as Dropbox and Box.net.
Half size booklet files can be submitted to us in various formats. Many clients turn art in as a multipage PDF document with .25” bleed area. Each page should be sized as 5.75 x 8.75. The key to well printed booklets and playbills is providing enough bleed area (leave enough space between edges and important text/images).
We prefer booklets to be turned in as multipage files with a .25” bleed. Some customers find it easier to submit booklet and playbill 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.
"I really thought this was great and my programs were exactly what I wanted at a fraction of the cost (I did my research)! I appreciated that I was able to get through to someone and discuss my needs and that they were able to walk me through the process." - Eric
