Let PrintingCenterUSA Take Your Program from Concept to Finished Product
We have worked with and helped a number of businesses, non-profits, religious organizations, schools and education to design, mail & print programs. Below are different options to help you take your program from concept to finished product.
Program Photo Ideas:
- Good quality photos are important.
- A good resolution for printing photos is 300 dpi (dots per inch). Anything below will print pixelated. Most images displayed on a monitor has a resolution of 72 dpi and 96 dpi, which means it may look great on your screen but will not look great when printed.
- Hire a professional photographer or take your digital pictures.
- Plan your picture day far enough in advance so it is convenient of all participants and doesn’t interfere with the production of the book.
- Set a deadline for pictures being submitted and specifications for 300 dpi (dots per inch).
- Individuals, coaches, players, speakers, participants, special guests, etc.
- Teams, groups, classes, staff, teachers, cheerleaders
- Activities, action pictures, products, whatever you want to convey, etc.
- Pictures from previous years’ or other past events.
- Liven up with people in funny situations and funny sayings to go with the picture.
HOW TO ARRANGE YOUR PROGRAM
How to Saddle Stitch a Program Booklet.
A single folded sheet of paper gives you 4 numbered pages. Page counts have to be divisible by 4. (8, 12, 16, 20, 24 and so on) and require a minimum of 8 numbered pages (2 sheets folded in half). Usually, any page count over 48 pages would be considered a book with a maximum of up to 96 pages.
How Do I Arrange Page Count?
The front cover starts at page 1. The inside front cover is page 2. The inside pages continue to like the diagram above, 3, 4, 5, 6. The inside back cover will be page 7, and the outside back cover will be page 8, depending on the page count. So if we did an 8-page booklet, it would be like the 8-page sample shown above which includes the cover. Covers can be printed on cover weight paper, or you can use the same weight of paper as the interior pages which is called a self-cover.
