Brochure printing costs vary greatly between printing companies depending on many variables. The variables to take into consideration are; size, paper stock, inks used, quantity, quality, folding technique, type of printing and proofing. Shipping is an additional cost and should be factored into the final cost. Quick turnaround times are usually available for a small additional fee. Print Lion offers both ground shipping and expedited shipping for your convenience.

Brochure printing costs may also vary seasonally. Historically summer months have fewer sales than the rest of the year for printing companies, therefore you can normally get a good deal on printing over the summer. By planning ahead, brochures can be printed when prices are low, for fall and winter distribution.
By ordering a higher quantity of brochures the cost per piece will be reduced. Therefore, if you are ordering small quantities of the same brochure multiple times a year, you should place one large order instead and save money.
Stock is also an area that can help cut your cost. By asking for the house stock you can usually get the best deal. Custom stocks are available. Request a custom quote for a specialty stock.
The type of ink used for a full color brochure will also factor into your cost. Full color may cost a bit more money, but is considered to be an expected cost by a business in order to create a high impact brochure. Remember, that PDF proofs are not color accurate. Order a hard copy proof for a small additional charge to make sure that your colors are accurate.

When considering brochure printing, quantity and the type of printing greatly impacts the cost. Lower quantities will be cheaper running on a digital press. Quantities of over 500 are printed on sheetfed offset presses at Print Lion. If color is very important to you, than sheet-feed offset will offer you a better quality full color printing brochure. While full color brochure printing is color printing, the ink lays on the paper differently and does not offer the same quality.
Custom brochure printing can be costly. Custom die-cutting is costly because a custom die-cut needs to be made from scratch and running a die-cut job usually requires more labor. Other printing services such as foil stamping and laminating adds a significant cost because of materials and labor. Perfect binding is usually more costly than saddle stitching because of the cost of materials and labor.
Brochure printing costs generally increase with the addition of folding. Some folds such as a Z-fold, tri-fold and half fold may not be expensive and will most likely cost about the same. Gate folds generally are more expensive than the other folds because the brochure must run through the folding machine twice to create that type of fold.
