Design guidelines
Save the file for booklets as one PDF document with single pages.

Save the file for booklets not as spreads (two pages facing each other), but as PDF document with single pages, starting with the cover page (NOTE: saving as a multi-page PDF means 1 PDF file with multiple pages inside). Delete empty unnecessary pages from the file with the final save. Desired blank pages have to stay in the file.

Add 3 mm bleed.

To allow leeway for cutting differences in production, always add a bleed of 3 mm around all edges of your design. Make sure colours, background pictures and layouts extend into the bleed area so as to avoid leaving white lines as a result of cutting tolerances.

Keep 4 mm safety margin.

Keep all important text and images at least 4 mm away from the edge of the finished size.

Resolution of at least 300 dpi.

Make sure the resolution of the images and graphics in your artwork are at least 300 dpi.

Use CMYK as the colour mode.

Prepare your files using CMYK as the colour mode, not RGB. Use colourmode FOGRA39 (ISO Coated v2). If you are unsure of the colour mode of your file, don't worry we can always convert this for you. Keep in mind this can cause the colours to differ from the original file.

Save your files in uneditable, print-ready file formats.

Save your files in uneditable, print-ready file formats (PDF (1.4 or higher), TIFF, EPS, JPG). Deliver your files in one layer: the background layer.

Convert fonts to outlines or embed all the fonts.

Make sure you convert fonts to outlines or embed all the fonts when saving it to PDF.

Fonts should be at least 6 pt.

Fonts should be at least 6 pt.

Use the right values for full colour black.

Use Rich Black (C:63% M:52% Y:51% K:100%) for larger areas and text to get a deep black colour. Do not use this value for text smaller than 15 pt or plain text. This can only be used in full colour printing. For designing black smaller texts use 100% black.

Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.

Force Colour Images to CMYK with a 260% ink limit (in Photoshop > Convert Colour Profile > Photoshop 5 Default CMYK). Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.

Check line thickness.

Lines should be at least 0.25 pt. Negative lines should be at least 0.5 pt.

Check your artwork for overprint.

Make sure no elements in your artwork are set on overprint unless you want this effect in your design. You can read more about overprint in our Help Centre.

  • Please note: Only applicable for products which require your design: To make sure that your order is delivered at the indicated time, it is important that we receive your file with your design for the product, on time (also called cut-off time). This way, the product can be moved into production on time. The deadline is always communicated at the final step when putting your product together and in the box on the right which details your entire order.

  • The cut-off time for your printed item may vary. This depends on the combination you choose. This has to do with the manufacturing technique and / or the order quantities.

  • Please note: The product delivery shifts a day every time the deadline for submission has passed. This is also the case if the file is rejected by us and corrected artwork isn't supplied before the next cut-off time.

Which production techniques do we use?
  • For the production of Loopstitched Brochures, we use the following technique(s):

  • Digital (up to 250 pieces): Printed on professional HP Indigo printers, directly after your order is received. Digital printing is cheaper in lower order quantities.

Which carriers are used for the delivery?
  • For the delivery of Loopstitched Brochures, we use our most reliable carriers which, in most cases, are UPS or DPD.

  • UPS

  • We also use DHL and our own courier service. However, these carriers are only used for certain products (depending on the size, the turnaround and the quantity).

  • The Loopstitched Brochures chosen in most cases can be selected via our website.

  • Depending on the complexity, this can take a bit longer.

Will my booklets be stapled?
  • Yes, these booklets will be delivered stapled. The booklets in our range include Loop Stitched Booklets, Stapled Booklets, and Perfect Bound Booklets.

What materials can I choose from?
  • 90 gsm: This paper is our budget paper. It's light, thin and cost-effective - ideal for distribution!

  • 135gsm: This material is lightweight and slightly thicker than printing paper. Thickness: 0.11 mm.

  • 170gsm: This material gives your product a professional look. It's ideal for use at events, fairs and for your business-stand. Thickness: 0.17mm.

  • 250gsm: This paper is mainly used in the hospitality and retail and is three times as thick as printing paper. With a thickness of 0.22 mm, the paper feels pretty solid.

Is the amount of pages equal to the amount of paper sheets?
  • No. This is because the pages are folded and printed on both sides. A sheet of paper gets folded in the middle so it covers 4 pages (2 on the front and 2 on the back). For instance, when you choose an A4 size brochure with 8 pages, we print two A3 sheets (two times as big as A4) and fold them in half, which results in a total of 8 pages.

What is the maximum number of pages per booklet?
  • The maximum number of pages in your booklet will depend on the type of paper you choose. Below you can find the maximum amount of pages according to the type of paper:

    90gsm silk MC: Maximum of 64 pages per booklet
    90gsm offset paper: Maximum of 64 pages per booklet
    90gsm recycled paper: Maximum of 40 pages per booklet
    110gsm recycled paper: Maximum of 64 pages per booklet
    120gsm offset paper: Maximum of 64 pages per booklet
    135gsm gloss MC: Maximum of 64 pages per booklet
    135gsm silk MC: Maximum of 64 pages per booklet
    170gsm silk MC: Maximum of 64 pages per booklet
    170gsm gloss MC: Maximum of 48 pages per booklet
    170gsm offset paper: Maximum of 48 pages per booklet
    170gsm recycled paper: Maximum of 48 pages per booklet
    250gsm gloss MC: Maximum of 36 pages per booklet
    250gsm silk MC: Maximum of 36 pages per booklet
    250gsm recycled paper: Maximum of 36 pages per booklet

    If you would like a booklet with more than 64 pages, check out our Perfect Bound Booklets.

Why can my booklets only be printed per 4 pages?
  • In short, it's to make sure that no pages fall out of the booklet. For example, when you choose an A4 size booklet with 8 pages, we print two A3 sheets (two times as big as A4) and fold them in half, which results in a total of 8 pages.

    If you don't have enough content to fill four pages, here are some suggestions: Find a sponsor who would like to add advertisements in your booklet, make use of an extra introduction page or consider going the 'less is more' route and leaving 1 or more pages white.
