A match made in print heaven. The perfect two products to print together.
A brochure is a small book consisting of 8 or more pages. A brochure consists of the contents (pages) and the cover, which don't have to be the same. Our brochures are available in various types of paper, combinations and numbers of pages!
This product is used to / as:
- Introduce people to your business
- Serve as a presentation guide
- Serve as an information guide
- Serve as a pricelist
- Bundle reports
- Represent your company's identity or brand
To make sure that there are no pages falling out of the brochure, we make use of a format that is twice as large as the final format of the brochure. When you choose for a A4 size brochure with 8 pages, then we will print two A3 sheets (two times as big as A4) and fold it in half. When you want to number the pages you will find out that you can number from 1 to 8. Every A3 sheet will have four pages. Don't have enough content to fill four pages? Then, there are some solutions of course: You can find a sponsor who would like to have his advertisments in you brochure or make use of an extra introduction page. You can leave 1 or more pages white, or be creative and design an extra page in the style of your brochure.

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). In this way the product can be put into production on time. The deadline is always communicated in the yellow bar on the product page, above the "Add to shopping cart" button.
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.
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.
For the production of your booklets we use the following production technique(s):
Digital printing uses four colours (CMYK) with toners and inks to print digital files. This option is comparable to large home printer, and is cheaper than ‘litho’ printing for smaller quantities. This is because there are less starting costs, less components involved, and no ink drying time necessary. (up to 1.000 pieces)
Offset Lithography printing or Litho printing makes it possible to provide larger quantities at unbeatable prices. This technique creates images and text with wet ink and transferred to each paper sheet with aluminium and rubber plates. This method is more extensive than its 'digital’ counterpart because of the different printing materials that are used. Still, it is the most cost-effective option when you order bigger printed batches.
The maximum amount of pages dependent on the type of paper you choose. When the amount of pages is too high the form of the brochure will change because of the air inside. To prevent this, we have stated a maximum amount of pages per type of paper:
90gsm silk MC: maximum of 64 pages per brochure
135gsm gloss MC: maximum of 64 pages per brochure
170gsm silk MC: maximum of 48 pages per brochure
250gsm gloss MC: maximum of 36 pages per brochure
Stapled booklets: maximum of 64 pages
Loop stitched booklets: maximum of 56 pages
Perfect bound booklets: maximum of 200 pages
Hardcover books: maximum of 196 pages
Wire-O booklets: maximum of 64 pages
Today, standing out amongst company competition has become more of a challenge. With new digital tools emerging faster than ever, the ability to reach a broad audience isn’t as simple as setting up shop, and knowing customers will end up in line. Still, this isn’t a reason to be discouraged, because sometimes keeping things simple, can become a well-rounded marketing campaign.
Do what you promise: If you want to be a resource to someone, you need to know what you do, and do it well. Ensuring your service accomplishes what its claims is the foundation to good consumer experiences. Remember, if your customers are impressed, chances are they’re recommending your services to their friends, family and colleagues.
Brainstorm before designing: What stands out to you when you’re going about your day to day? Keeping this in mind when designing your set of marketing tools like business cards, or when you choose cheap brochure printing is what’ll give your business a boost in the visibility department.
Finding places to promote: Consider this, if you want to advertise your new gym with brochure printing, placing them in a ‘all you can eat buffet’ restaurant isn’t really going to get you the best results. Knowing who you’re marketing to is what’ll help pinpoint suitable local outlets to promote your services. This small effort will be more effective since your target customers are likely to pass-by and notice your offers. A small bonus is advertising your ‘one time’ promotions and samples, which will especially emphasise what they stand to gain.
Know your brand: Do you remember that feeling of frustration when you had to sift through heaps of information to answer a few simple questions? You can replace that same feeling with ease, by simply explaining what you do in a clear and concise manner. Having some structure to the style and copy of your branded materials, whether that be on your custom flyers, banners or posters will do wonders at events and in daily encounters.
Promote on the go: The advantages of visiting events and conferences is generally underestimated by emerging businesses. The abundance of knowledge and market insight is often something that can be gained by just a few hours amongst other experienced professionals. Business events and trade-shows are an easy way to immerse yourself with relevant innovation and gain a new understanding into consumers and market trends. This is the environment to not only expand your network, but put your marketing tools to the test; gaining feedback and some handy business cards.
