Print Lion offers the best catalog printing in the industry.
If you’re like most of our online customers, your first priority in full color catalog printing is quality. When you order color printing for your business, you want to know that you’re getting the best service and that you’re going to be happy with the end result.
We believe quality starts with the basics. We offer catalog design if you’d like help with getting your catalog just right. If you design it yourself or hire a designer, it is important to note that we accept all file types. We also offer free templates and proofs to help you save time in creating your catalog.
Our catalog printing services include either a self-cover or a catalog plus cover stock, so you can create exactly the look you want. Our standard catalog size is 8.5 x 11, but we also offer 8.5 x 5.5, and we can print custom sizes on request. Pages come in a multiple of four, with an eight page minimum. We can print as many pages as you like. Most of our business customers choose 16 or 32 pages.
Print Lion uses the best paper in all our printing services. Our standard stock for self-cover catalogs is 100# gloss text, but 80# gloss text is available. Of course we offer custom stock as well. We recommend 4/4 (full color) printing for your catalog design. We also offer UV coating for the cover or the entire catalog. UV provides a protective finish if your business catalog is a direct mail piece.
A catalog’s binding determines a lot about its look, so we offer multiple bindery options. Perfect binding is the square edge like a paperback book. Saddle-stitching, which means folded and stapled in the middle, is cost-effective and works well for mailing. We also offer coil binding on our catalogs.
We offer a number of additional services for our online catalog customers. We can foil-stamp and die-cut covers, as well as providing marketing and graphic design. We can also add perforations, which work well with order forms in the center of the catalog or on the last page.
We’ll also mail your custom color catalog. Our in-house mailing service is affordable, convenient and saves you time. We are CASS certified and offer move-update service if desired. We can use your list or acquire a list for you. We offer inkjet labeling service and single, double and triple tabbing service.
