Color booklet printing is used by almost every industry and business in some way. Sometimes booklets are referred to as catalogs. Many non-profit organizations use booklets to share their message and encourage people to offer their support both with their time and finances. For profit businesses use booklets to share the products and services that they offer. A booklet can be large or small depending on the amount of information that you have to share.

Color printing is the most popular type of booklet printing. Full color can be used throughout your color booklet to create a feeling or encourage people to act on something. For a non-profit organization using full color throughout a booklet is an effective way to present a message in a cost effective way. For a business with many similar products and services full color can make your products more intriguing. Another option is to have a full color cover and have black ink on the inside pages.

Much of your booklet size depends on how you are using your booklet. We offer standard 8.5 X 11 or 8.5 X 5.5 booklet sizes. If you have a custom size, than please fill out our custom quote form to get an estimate. When deciding on booklet sizes consider how the customer will be using the booklet. For example, will they be referencing it over and over or will they be carrying it around at a trade show? These are important questions to ask because you want to make sure that customers do not discard your booklet and that it is not burden to them.
The size also includes the number of pages that your booklet is composed of. Eight pages is the minimum number of pages that can be in a booklet. Again, you must consider your audience when determining the page count for your booklet. If you are presenting this booklet to an audience of senior citizens than your font should be larger and products and services should have larger images and more space between them, hence presenting the need for more pages and a larger overall booklet size. If your audience is younger adults, smaller font and the closeness of images does not need to be considered as much.
