A booklet is a small, thin book with paper covers.
Booklets come in many shapes and sizes but generally contain fewer pages than a book at approximately 4 to 48 pages, with soft covers and simple saddle stitch binding. A typical booklet style is a stack of 2 or more sheets of paper, folded in half. The number of pages is always divisible by 4, for example 4 pages, 8 pages, 12 pages, etc.
Generally the cover stock (paper) is heavier than the text stock.
Covers can be laminated to give a better feel, we use gloss laminate, matt laminate and soft touch laminate. It should be noted that lamination is a different process and result from encapsulation.
Booklets provide a huge scope to display the information you wish to convey. Whether that is a school diary or year book. In business you may need to inform your investors of your progress, a booklet can be embossed and spot uv to enhance it's quality. Booklets are generally produced stitch fold trim but saddle stitch booklet printing is also available. Either with or without laminated covers. They can be produced in portrait and landscape form. Covers are usually of a heavier weight stock than the text, sometimes they are self cover, that is if the cover is the same weight as the text pages. Booklets work well with a smaller number of pages. Booklets can be usedfor all sorts of things, whether you ned marketing booklet printing or presentation booklet printing.
Books can be used for both small and large numbers of pages. Books are PUR bound or Perfect bound, for those very special books then case bound is the way to go. Casebound books are usually section sewn together and attached to the inside of a case with end papers which are placed on to the book block and then glued into the case.
