Being Northern Ireland, there’s nowhere too far for our delivery team to deliver. From Belfast City Centre right up to the North Coast or down to Armagh, we serve the entire country with with high quality brochure printing.
One of the most common questions we’re asked is with regard the size of a booklet. Thankfully we offer 3 main sizes at kaizenprint.co.uk, of which we’re sure to meet your booklet needs. They are A5 Portrait, A5 Landscape & A4 Portrait. We do offer bespoke sizes on request but we find the above sizes provide the most cost effective booklet printing options as these sizes fill our SRA3 sheets fully without waste.
What is booklet pagination?
Pagination equals the number of pages in your booklet. When writing your content, the number of pages you use in word will give you a rough indication of the length of your booklet. However when we bring this into our design studio, adding imagery and text styling this may go up or down. Booklets must be printed with a pagination or page count in multiples of 4. This is because when we collate and fold the sheets within a booklet for stitching, the fold create a front, back, inside left and inside right of a sheet (4-pack). Collating multiple sheets together and stitching them, we create a booklet.
What paper should my booklet be printed on?
We offer 2 main types of paper for our digital printed booklets. However the most common paper for printing your booklet would be a silk paper. By buying this paper in bulk, we’ve been able to keep our booklet printing cheaper than our competition in Belfast.
Digital Printing of Booklets
Before the advent of digital printing technology most booklet were litho printed on huge printing presses the size of small houses. Since the early 90’s and the launch of modern digital printers, booklets have more and more frequently been printed digitally. Certainly this is something we’re finding with our own business. There are key benefits of digitally printed booklets. They include:
- Speed of printing – digitally printed booklets can be printed in days rather than weeks.
- Shorter print runs – unlike litho printing, digital printers can print short runs from as little as 1 copy. The cost per unit does decrease as you print larger quantities and we find 5000 as the break point between digital and litho printing.
- Ever increasing print quality – undeniably there are some instances where litho printing will be of a higher quality. But for 90% of our clients and their projects, digitally printed booklets are perfect for their needs. We’ve invested considerably recently on our Xerox Versant presses to ensure only the highest quality booklet printing at kaizenprint.co.uk
