Artwork for Booklets

Artwork for Booklets (Stapled/Saddle stitched)

Booklets come in various shapes and sizes and with different configurations

Remember that we can only make booklets in multiples of 4 pages, so 4,8,12,16 etc. If you have designed your booklet with a different number of pages, you will need to add or subtract pages to get to the multiple of 4. It is generally easier to add pages than to lose pages, so if y ou have 34 pages, you can usually just add an inside back and front cover, and you will then have 36 pages, which is a multiple of 4, so it will work perfectly.

In your enquiry, we will need to know the following:

Finished Size – A4, A5, A6 and even A7!

Orientation – Portrait or landscape

Stock  (type of paper) of the inside pages

Stock of the cover – if this is going to be different to the inside pages

Whether you need the covers laminated or not

Total number of pages, including the covers.

The Artwork

For your booklets, please send us the artwork as follows:

Each page must be a separate pdf, so no spreads please.

Once you have all the pdf’s, please combine them into one file (if you can,) and send them to us. If the file is over 10Mb, please nip over to Upload Artwork on our website, it works a treat. Please don’t send us dropbox links, or google drive if you can possibly help it. If the file is under 10Mb in size, just attach it to the email.

Artwork must be CMYK, or you may get discrepancies in the colours, so please avoid spot and RGB colours.

Outline text if you can.

3mm internal bleed on the outside edges

At least 5mm internal bleed on the edge that will be stapled.

5mm external bleed on the outside edges.

Only crop marks on the file, no printers, registration or other marks please.

Remember to discuss how to set up your artwork before you start with your project with us as the artwork gets a bit tricky for thicker projects, and chat to us about the covers for the booklets as well.
