Finding the perfect booklet.

Which booklet is right for my customer?

Booklets have long been the preferred print media for individuals and businesses looking to showcase their products and services. Not only do they provide ample space to display information and images, but they can also be financially advantageous for businesses operating on a budget.

When considering booklet printing options, it’s crucial to understand the different types available and how they can best suit your needs. Each type of booklet possesses distinct characteristics tailored to various purposes, thus it’s essential to select the one that aligns best with your project.

Saddle Stitch Booklets:

Saddle stitch booklets are a popular choice for many businesses due to their simplicity in printing and cost-effectiveness. The term “saddle stitch” refers to the printing method used, where large sheets of paper are folded and ridden along the machine to get stapled along the spine. This method allows for quick turnaround times, making them ideal for projects with tight deadlines.

One of the main advantages of saddle stitch booklets is the variety of material options available, allowing businesses to tailor their booklets to their specific project and budget requirements. Additionally, they offer flexibility with the option to print a custom-size booklet, making it easier to create unique brochures that stand out.

Keeping marketing costs low is essential for businesses, and saddle stitch booklets offer an economical solution. At Tradeprint, you can order saddle stitch booklets in quantities as low as one, or in bulk to lower the unit cost.  Our Price Match promise ensures you get the best value for your investment.

Key Benefits

  • On certain options, you can order from as little as 1 booklet.
  • Custom sizes are available.
  • You can order, print, and deliver within 48 hours.
  • Price Match available.

Perfect Bound Booklets:

Perfect-bound booklets are a premium option for businesses with more extensive content or those seeking a luxurious finish. They consist of internally bound pages and a separate cover spread made from thicker paper stock, providing added protection and a solid feel.

The perfect bound book’s ability to accommodate more pages than saddle stitch booklets makes it ideal for showcasing products and services in a premium manner. Businesses in industries such as automotive, furniture, and education often choose perfect bound booklets to reflect the quality of their offerings.

When ordering perfect-bound booklets, it’s important to take care and read the artwork requirements before sending them to print. The cover on your perfect bound book needs to be designed to strick specifications to ensure it prints correctly. We recommend that you download our templates (available on the product page) for more information.

An accompanying product frequently ordered by many of our customers along with their perfect bound books is our Book Wrap Boxes. When shipping your booklet to customers, you aim to ensure it arrives in pristine condition. So, why not consider trying our book wrap boxes?

Key Benefits

  • Being able to add lamination for extra protection.
  • Ideal for larger page counts.
  • Wide range of cover materials available.
  • Order a single book if needed.

Wiro-Bound Booklets:

Wiro-bound booklets offer durability and flexibility, with pages secured by a metal wire spine. This binding method allows the booklet to lay flat when opened and provides a full 360-degree view, making it convenient for reading and writing.

Customers favour wire-bound booklets for a variety of documents, including notebooks, calendars, manuals, and presentations, due to their professional appearance and long-lasting quality.

When preparing print files for wire-bound booklets, it’s recommended to provide a slightly larger safe area along the spine edge. Customers can choose from a range of coloured wires for the spine to customise their booklet’s appearance further.

Key Benefits

  • Affordable and flexible.
  • 3 wire colours to choose from.
  • Choose uncoated paper and use the book to write in.
  • Flip the books over and print them as calendars.

Hardback book.

When you step into any library or school, hardback books stand out as the preferred choice for storytelling authors. Their covers, made from solid greyboard wrapped in custom artwork, provide sturdy protection for the bound pages within. Using PUR adhesive, the pages are securely glued into the spine, ensuring the book can be enjoyed for years to come.

As more aspiring authors turn to self-publishing, hardback books emerge as the perfect solution. Their durability and professional appearance make them an attractive option for those looking to bring their stories to life.

Similar to our perfect bound books, designing artwork for hardback books requires careful attention to detail. Additional elements such as the spine, hinges, and wraparounds must be considered. While experienced designers may find these aspects straightforward, we understand that newcomers may need assistance. That’s why we offer a File Assist service, where our talented Pre Press team can help you prepare your hardback booklet for print, ensuring a polished and professional result.

When you’re lost in a captivating book and the deliveryman arrives at your door, having a bookmark handy is essential for saving your place. Bookmarks serve as fantastic additional products that perfectly complement your hardback book. We print bookmarks in a variety of sizes to suit your preferences, and they are a great little marketing addition when you are launching your new book.

Key Benefits

  • Up to 400 inner capacities.
  • Long lifespan and durable, ideal for children’s books.
  • The perfect option for self-publishing authors.
  • Silk, gloss, uncoated and smooth white materials to choose from.

  1. Is it possible to have a sample of the Perfect Bound Booklet? I’m thinking of having these printed for my Photography Fee Brochure, which is 34 pages, and obviously needs to make the photos look good too. Thanks

    1. Hello David, unfortunately, we do not send out any perfect bound samples. However, you can place an order for a single Perfect Bound as a test run to assess the quality of the print before committing to a larger order. We hope this information is helpful to you.
