Binding and Finishing Options
Depending on the number of pages in your brochure or booklet they can be bound in different ways. The following are some of the standard binding methods used by K Print.
The most common way to bind magazines, newsletters, brochures and booklets is saddle stitching. Two strong staples are placed through the middle sheets to hold all the pages together. Once the number of pages in a brochure or booklet goes above 60 you need to consider other forms of binding as stitching will not hold the pages together properly. Pur binding which uses a strong glue to bind the pages and spine together is the option we recommend when you have a large number of pages. With Pur binding the spine has a straight edge and if the width is wide enough you can print the name of the brochure or booklet along the spine.
Paper Options and Finishes
Brochures and booklets generally use coated papers as these show off colour well. The standard paper used for 6 page DL brochures and single page A4 brochures is 170 gsm silk.
The standard paper used for the text pages of A5 and A4 brochures is anything from 115 gsm silk to 170 gsm silk and for the covers anything from 250 gsm silk to 350 gsm silk. If you would like your brochure to have a more natural look we recommend using uncoated papers. These are less smooth to touch and allow the printed colours to sit into the paper giving images a matt appearance. We also stock a wide range of recycled papers like the popular “Revive” and “Cyclus” ranges.
If your booklet or brochure has a large number of pages we recommend that the cover is given a matt or gloss laminate as this will prevent marking and enhance its appearance. We can also include special finishes on the cover like UV varnish, embossing and gold or silver foiling.
The standard delivery time for most of our brochures and booklets is 5 working days from the time you sign off on final artwork. Short runs can be supplied in two to three days. Booklets and brochures requiring special finishes like UV varnishing, embossing and Pur binding may take a few extra days. We deliver using our own delivery van in Dublin and by next day courier services throughout Ireland.
