Low prices are wonderful; we all want to make sure that we are paying “the best price” for our printed booklet. Everyone wants to publish an event program, catalog or newsletter that will attract, inform, and move the reader to action. You want to “knock the socks off” your audience. It would be great if you could do that at the lowest price—sometimes you can.
Booklet Printing, LLC has the equipment, software, systems and trained people which allow us to offer you a price schedule which is very competitive. We also offer many ways to cut your costs and still give you the event program, booklet, catalog or newsletter you envisioned.
The first thing you need to determine is the size of the booklet you are going to print. Should it be 8.5” x 11” or 8.5” x 5.5” or something else? If you use a size other than the standard 8.5” x 11” or 8.5” x 5.5” you run the risk of increasing your costs as your booklet printer will have to use a larger stock size. Investigate if you can accomplish the same result with a smaller (8.5” x 5.5”) booklet.
Design features such as bleed copy may increase the cost of your booklet, as your booklet printer may have to increase the paper size and have extra trimming costs. We do not charge extra for bleed copy because we have streamlined our paper sizes and order larger quantities to reduce our (and your) cost.
Very fine graphics may require you to use a gloss-coated paper instead of an uncoated opaque stock. Gloss coated paper is more expensive than uncoated opaque. Most type and normal graphics look great when printed on a good uncoated stock.
Is your booklet going to have rough handling by the recipient and require a sturdy cover? Can you get away with a self-cover booklet (cover which is printed on the same paper as the text pages)? A self-cover is less expensive than a booklet with a heavier cover.
Can you print the cover and the text in black ink? If your booklet is all type or line graphics and used for training or information only black ink is probably fine. Is your booklet an advertising piece like an event program with advertising or a product catalog? Then you probably want your booklet to print in color.
If you make your booklet a self-cover 8.5” x 5.5” booklet printed black ink on uncoated opaque stock you can save money. However, always make sure that your booklet does what you need it to do. It is false economy to print a booklet that is designed to be as inexpensive as possible if it doesn’t accomplish what you wanted it for.
