Catalog Sizes and Formats
Customers demand information, and detailed product catalogs and booklets can generate orders by filling that need. You can build your own catalog or booklet in two sizes, the handy 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Catalog
or the ever-popular 8 1/2 x 11 Catalog
. We offer anything from a simple brochure folded to make a four-pager, up to 64 pages in full color, saddle-stitched (stapled) at the spine. Custom catalog printing sizes, formats and papers as well as custom finishing can be used to create distinctive designs. We handle all of the technical details like shingling and headtrim, leaving you free to create a catalog that SELLS.
Booklets are normally printed in the standard 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 or a smaller size. A custom size booklet can be printed to the exact size and dimensions that you need. Give our prepress experts a call and we'll help make a booklet layout for the graphics program of your choice so your design will print correctly. We'll also get you a price quickly.
Most people choose our glossy 80# text weight stock for the entire catalog, booklet or calendar. You can upgrade to 100# gloss text for a more substantial feel. And, you can select 80# gloss text, 100# gloss text, or sturdy 80# gloss or dull/matte cover (8 1/2 x 11 only) stock for the cover. We recommend this if your catalog or booklet will see sustained use, such as for parts reference. Our gloss papers include free aqueous coating for scuff resistance and extra sheen, and you can add UV coating for an ultra-shiny, high-end look and feel. Custom papers and recycled papers are also available. Request a custom catalog printing price quote
