Hot Print´s Online Booklet Printing

A booklet accompanies usually a product, stating its main features and it can serve as a sort of explanation about a certain product. It is very similar to flyer with the difference that it has more than one page. Booklets can be as well used for the presentation of information campaigns on a particular topic.

As any other promotional material, booklets as well should contain a piece of text and images to illustrate the theme. A piece of text in the brochure, obeys the same rules as any written work. This means that the wording should be concise and objective in relation to the theme. The illustrations should be appropriate not only to the subject but also to the available space.

Some people might get confused with how many pages a booklet should actually contain. The truth is that you can make your booklet as big as you want, but the minimum number of pages, so that you can really call it a booklet, is eight. In other words, there has to be at least four pages of cover + four pages of text.

Booklet prints are not the perfect solution for any type of business. Yes, we agree that booklets are created to provide important business information to a group of potential clients, but is a booklet, as a type of promotional material, the right solution for your business as well? Booklets hold more information than flyers, and that is the biggest difference between these two promotional materials. They are also an easily distributable format, and in most cases accepted by a wide audience. But, booklets work well only for businesses that want to provide detailed information about the product or service that they offer. You can as well use booklets as training manuals for example.

I guess that anyone who is planning to make a booklet as a type of a promotional material for a business would like to know the price of such a service. The truth is that booklet print is a few more expensive than other printing strategies, but it has its benefits of course. Here at Hot Print we offer cheap booklet printing and we have various features that will affect the final price of such service, but the most important thing that we need to know is how big you want your booklet to be. For example, as stated before, the minimum number of pages will have to be 8, and the maximum that we offer is a booklet of 96 pages. For example, one booklet of 8 pages will be printed on 2 sheets, while at the same time one booklet of 96 pages will be printed on 24 sheets.

When making a booklet, the best option is to make it in color. Of course, you can opt for a black and white variation, but it is the color booklet printing that will make the final product more appealing to the eye of your potential client. Full color booklets can definitely leave a positive impression on your customers. Remember, you have to represent your business in the best possible light, so sometimes saving a couple of $ just because of some details that might not seem so important to you, can ruin your business.

Other details that will affect the final price of booklets are the number of copies that you will need. Hot Print can print a minimum of 250 booklets and a maximum of 10.000. Paper stock as well plays a very important role in the overall impression that your clients will have when they are holding your booklet in their hands. For example, for a cover stock you can opt between a 100lb gloss book aqueous, 100lb gloss book aqueous and thick 14pt UV coat. From the other side, for the inside stock Hot Print offers a 100 lb gloss book aqueous paper and this is the only type currently offered.

When creating your booklet, you will be able to upload your choice of design directly to our web site. The following file formats are supported through our site - TIF, TIFF, EPS, AI, PSD, JPG, PNG and PDF. You can create your booklet templates yourself using some of the available free booklet printing software that can be downloaded from the internet. So, instead of using booklet printing service of some of the booklet printing companies, you can have your booklet printed on your home printer. This can be profitable only if you are trying to make a sample to see how it will turn out in the end. It can be used to test the potential market, and to ask your friends or family what they think about the booklet you just created. If their reaction is positive, you can be sure that you will have a successful marketing campaign. But, to have your booklets printed on your home computer, you need to prepare them either in a word format or a pdf format. Booklet printing word solution is for the less experienced ones, as it is much easier to be used than the booklet printing pdf solution. However, Hot Print also offers free templates for booklet covers, and this way you can save a lot of effort and time, especially if you don’t have a lot or at all experience with such things.

It is also very important to be mentioned that there are different binding methods for booklets. There are actually two methods that this print store offers – perfect binding and saddle stitch binding. Perfect binding solutions are available for booklets of 48 pages and more. This type of binding implies that the pages of the booklet are glued into the cover. For this type of binding, using crossover images is not recommended as they will be lost in the gutter. Saddle stitch binding implies that the pages of the print item are stapled through the middle (spine) of the booklet.

Now that you know some of the basic details that our company offers concerning the online booklet printing, here are some tips on how to make your booklet better and more effective. How to make a booklet is a rather easy and fun job as long as you know what you are expecting from it in the end, and for which purposes you are actually creating it.

The first and the most important thing is to take care about the cover layout. The cover is a crucial thing when creating a book or a booklet as this is the first thing that your potential client will see and the first thing he/she will be judging about your business. Play with the images when creating the perfect design, and as often as possible, try to take into account the needs of the readers. One idea is that you create a couple of different cover designs, and test them out on your family and friends.

Make sure that you use good quality images in your booklet, moreover professional images if possible. If you can avoid images taken from the Internet it will be a huge plus. The truth is that professional images are able to attract and engage clients, much faster than images that don’t represent any quality.

Interesting content is a very important factor as well. This doesn’t mean that you need to include a lot of text, on the contrary. Short and concise messages are the best marketing solution, but you shouldn’t forget to make them very informative as well. The truth is that the most important information should be done in the shortest and clearest possible way.

Interesting positioning of the images is another important feature of one successful booklet. This means that you shouldn’t insert images without any order, or placing them in the center of the page. Try to balance them, which will give a few of variety to the message text that might sound boring. Next, there are different booklet sizes you can choose from, but the most used size is 8.5 x 11 inches. This size is an excellent solution when you suing your booklet as a part of a PR kit. From the other side, when you are trying to approach more general audience, smaller booklets can be the right choice. Small booklets usually come in sizes of 8.5 x 5.5 inches. Smaller booklets can be easily distributed and this is why this size is normally used for “mailbox” marketing strategies.

In the end of the digital booklet, never forget to include your contact details. Logo and contact details are a standard practice for most booklets. When a potential client sees the logo on the booklet, it will be much easier for him/her to figure out who it is from. Knowing your contact details, it will be much easier for your potential clients to contact you in case that they need more information of the services and products that your business provides.
