What can stapled booklets be used for?
If you need some inspiration before you place your order, above are a few ideas to keep in mind to get your creativity flowing!
How much does it cost to print a stapled booklet?
We can keep the costs of brochure printing low through Inkjet technology. Unlike traditional litho print, Inkjet allows us to print high volumes of booklets on a single reel of paper. Our prices range from £15 per booklet for low-quantity orders, down to £1.25 per stapled booklet for higher-quantity orders. The cost of booklet printing also depends on your paper options and size.
Can you print stapled booklets with Word files?
Word files are not print-ready documents. Stapled booklets (also known as saddle-stitched books) need to be supplied in PDF format. This includes your artwork and your inner pages. Because booklets are traditionally smaller in length, it means there are fewer pages to be formatted which means it may be cheaper for you to use our design service to prepare your files.
How are stapled booklets printed?
Stapled booklets are printed in the same way as most other books. The difference comes during the binding process. The binding process for a brochure involves stapling the cover to the inner pages of the booklets. Due to the pages being stapled together, there are limits on how many pages you can print. If the booklets are too thick, there’s a risk that the staples may come apart over time.
What’s the best paper for a stapled booklet?
The great thing about stapled booklet printing is the flexibility! Depending on how you’re going to use the booklets will determine which paper options work best for you. For example, full-colour booklets have a much nicer finish with a higher paper weight such as 130gsm or 150gsm. If you’re printing internal stationery or training materials, you may consider 80gsm paper. If you’re unsure on which paper types are right for your booklets, please speak to a member of our team – we’d be happy to help!
What’s the difference between saddle stitched and a staple finish?
There isn’t any difference between the two types of products. Your options for artwork, paper, binding technique and, price, are all the same. Your price will not change depending on which option you choose during the ordering process.
