BOOKLET (BOOK) PRINTING
Printed booklets are great for short stories, recipes, advertising, reference guides and more. Discover the different bindings and paper stock for your next booklet.
Booklets (BOOK) are unique printed pieces used for a niche subject matter for information, promotion or entertainment. They are often much smaller than a magazine or catalog and sometimes have very thick cover stock for the cover or pages. Wire-O binders are usually used to keep the pages together in the spine. Printing booklets requires an offset press and bindery to produce the booklets. Booklets are also used by restaurants as menus and wine lists. We have produced many booklets for several organizations such as the PGA Association Directory. Booklets hold up for a long period of frequent use and are durable.
Most booklets you will see are reference books for the tourist business, and guides for all types of businesses. Booklets are printed for children’s books and short stories because of the small hands that are using them. Recipe guides are printed in small booklets with hard covers so they last a long time after use in the kitchen. The wire-O binding or spiral binding is often used because of the think hard cover and thicker than average pages inside he book. The wire binding can hold these pages together, which number less than 100 usually and are very heavy compared to 100# cover paper stock. Some booklets are printed on 100+ cover stock but still need the durability and easy page turning of a wire binding which you can fold over the pages so they all lay flat in your lap or while performing other tasks. This way you can keep a page turned to without the book bending back to close it that a perfect bound or saddle stitch book tends to do. Florida commercial printers print a ton of booklets because of the nature of Florida’s prime industries which are printing for tourism and hospitality, recreation and food service.
