Brochure wars

With the heavyweight hardback book being introduced to our product range recently, we’ve been busy working out who’d win in fisticuffs: Saddle Stitched Brochures, Perfect Bound Documents or Hardback Books. Well, there’s merits for each type of booklet binding we offer, so have a read and let us know who you’ll pick as your print champion by commenting below!

Saddle up

Versatile and ready for anything, Saddle Stitched Brochures, are small but perfectly formed, and ideal for documents of 8-40 pages. You can tailor your brochures to your hearts content with a choice of 10 different paper stocks, and there’s also the option of gloss or matt lamination. This multi-functional print, held together with saddle stitch binding (staples along the spine) is retail heaven and can be used as pricing brochures to post if your business is online, or as in-store catalogues to help customers make a purchase.

Perfectly perfect in every way

The ultimate choice for documents of 20-240 pages long, Perfect Bound Documents are available with four paper stock options. If you want to create high-impact, glossy magazines on the thick side, this type of binding is ideal. Also good for manuals, annual reports and brochures, perfect binding glues the pages and spine together for a high-end finish.

Hardback heroes  

Ideal for when you need a print upgrade, Hardback Books are the prestigious casebound books for you. A preferred choice for wedding or memory photobooks, or professional or creative portfolios, hardback books are created through a specialised case binding method. The front and back covers are wrapped around sturdy board with an extra strong glue used to bind the inner pages, making a strong long-lasting durable product. With the option of 32-400 pages, you can really bring your work to life and it will stand the test of time.

Turn things on its head…

A picture is worth a thousand words, and what better way to showcase your work than a Landscape Brochure? Great for large scale print and big imagery in A4 size, A5 is also a good option for smaller product catalogues, brochures, colour charts, wallpaper designs or showing jewellery ranges. And you can choose between all the binding options above, so if you’re printing visual, image-heavy books, turning print on its head could be the way to go.

So there isn’t really one winner, as there are big pro’s for each type of book printing, it just all depends on your print needs!
