Some Brochure printing advice
The production of catalogues implies a more complex process because it requires binding signatures. We bind Softcover catalogues in their different forms (section-sewn, glued or PUR).
The most used and cheapest standard formats are the A4 and A5 sizes that make the most of the sheet of paper. For example, furniture catalogues tend to be Din-A4 horizontal and product catalogues such as those of a hardware store tend to be in vertical format.
If you are going to calculate the printing price on our website, you can customize the size. Simply choose the larger standard size and when ordering please indicate the actual size in the comments field.
If you want to save on paper, choose a standard coated paper. 90% of catalogues on the market are printed on coated paper. This is logical, bearing in mind that in catalogues the most important thing is to accurately reproduce product colours. Coated paper highlights the colour of your images, offset paper turns them off (this is due to the fact that in the case of coated paper the ink does not penetrate the paper, it dries on the surface).

Covers for personalized Brochures
We offer you the possibility of embellishing the covers of your personalized catalogues with some finishings : the first of them is lamination, which can be glossy or matt, both on one or both sides. The second one is spot UV varnish, which can be glossy on one or both sides. The application of Spot UV varnish to areas you want to highlight confers a very special look to your catalogues. The most common combination is to laminate the covers in matt and then apply the UVI varnish. As a result, the covers of your catalogues will get an excellent quality.
Wire-o catalogue printing
Wire-o consists of two metal thread or wire loops. Spiral consists of a simple wire loop. Both wire-o and spiral binding procedures are equally practical and effective. The only difference is at an aesthetic level, since wire-o is more elegant than spiral... although, as we know, there is no accounting for tastes.
