Catalog Printing


From employee handbooks to glossy, full-color sales catalogs for prospective customers or technical manuals that provide valuable information for product users, a well-designed and printed booklet or catalog can be a key factor in earning trust and generating results. And with our hands-on attention to detail and superior paper stock, PFL is the place to have your booklets and catalogs printed.

Catalogs are a department store standard, but you can easily use them for your business, too. Highlight seasonal inventory and specials on a quarterly basis. Provide some editorial content, creating more of a magazine/catalog hybrid. The options are limitless!

You can build your own catalog or booklet in two standard sizes, the handy 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Catalog or the ever-popular 8 1/2 x 11 Catalog, or create your own custom specs. PFL offers anything from a simple brochure folded to make a four-pager, all the way up to a 64 page, full color, saddle-stitched (stapled) at the spine or coil bound mega marketing tool.

Custom catalog printing sizes, formats and papers as well as additional custom finishing can be used to create distinctive designs and shapes. Rounded corners are not a problem. UV coating is a breeze. Can you have a thicker paper on the cover than your inside pages? Absolutely! Foil stamping and embossing? Sure! Anything you can imagine we can create. We'll handle all of the technical details like shingling and head trim, leaving you free to create a catalog that SELLS.

Place an order online or call PFL today at 800-924-2041 and talk to one of our Marketing Advisors so you can make catalogs a key lever of future growth in your business!

"From my initial contact with Printing For Less the experience has completely exceeded our expectations. With so many 'online' printing companies popping up you typically have no idea who you are working with and if they care about your printing job as much as you do. I can tell you that PFL does! Their customer service is first class, the print quality is stunning, and the turnaround times were unbelievable. Thank you PFL for taking good care of J Tabor Design and our clients."

4 Ways to Make Your Catalog a Success

  • Fantastic Photos: great product images are the essential core of any catalog, if you're investing in catalog printing - don't scrimp on sub-par photos
  • Consistent Design: keep your fonts and text colors to a few options at most, and your copy spacing uniform - quality presentation spells a quality product
  • Prioritize Products: your catalog shouldn't be merely an alphabetical product list - devote more space to top selling products, and showcase them on whole or multiple page spreads
  • Ecommerce Integration: large catalogs are likely to cover your entire product offering - make sure they're consistent with your current website to avoid customer frustration

The finished product is the small size of just 8.5 x 5.5", with a bare minimum of text copy inside. Nevertheless, with striking minimalist design this handy catalog is attractive, informative, and unimposing.

Booklet Printing

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.

Paper Options

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.
One popular choice is 80# gloss text for the insides, and 100# gloss text for the cover. This gives an enduring, rich feel without busting the budget. Request paper and print samples to see and feel the paper quality, finishes and weights first hand.
