Most Popular Paper

paper thickness

Gloss paper has a shiny and lustrous smooth coated gloss finish. Excellent for making full color printing appear more vibrant.

Matte paper is a dull coated sheet that exhibits low gloss finish. Paper has minimal glare, making it easier to read text.

Uncoated paper is easy to write on and should be used in projects such as a workbook or coloring book.

Softcover vs Self-Cover

Perfect Bound Book printing
Perfect binding booklet printing is single sheets (text weight) paper printed on both sides and collated in page number order, one on top of the other, and gathered into a book block. The spine edge is ground off. The softcover (a thicker cardstock) is placed over and around the book block (interior pages) and attached by the application of a strong yet flexible PUR glue along the binding edge, creating a professional looking square spine that can be printed on.

Softcover

Spiral Bound Book printing
Spiral Binding is more durable than wire-o binding but does not have the professional look of a wire-o bound book. A spiral bound book uses a durable plastic coil which makes it an ideal option for spiral book binding that needs to lie flat and can fold or wrap back around themselves (360 degree) and are continually being referred to. The plastic coil allows for frequent use that not damage the book binding coil. Spiral bound book printing is great for instruction and repair manuals, cookbooks, directories, handbooks, guides, and other reference materials. Spiral binding is excellent for wall calendars and planners can hang flat against the wall.

Softcover

Wire-O Bound Book printing
Wire-O binding is for a more formal use and offers a more professional look than a spiral bound book. A wire-o bound book uses a metal wire. Unlike a perfect bound or saddle-stitched book, the open wire-o bound book will lie flat (180 degrees) for easy reference or they can fold or wrap back around themselves (360 degree) making it easier to handle and lays flat for easy reading while taking up minimal room on a desk or table.
Wire-o binding is an excellent style of binding commonly used for businesses to create professional-looking lay flat documents such as business reports, documents, calendars and other book types. Wire-o binding calendars are one of our most popular products. The pages flip easily and hang flat against the wall. Wall calendars are great for non-profit fundraising programs, promoting business and photography.

Do We Need a Wedding Program?

Although it’s not mandatory for a wedding to have a wedding program, we do believe that they make treasured mementos for guests and the happy couple. You are able to list who is in your wedding party, thank you parents and other important people in your life, and go more in-depth to any traditions that you may be including in your wedding ceremony. For more inspiration on a great wedding program, see our case study ‘Wedding Program with a Theme: A Spring Love Story’.

What Are the Parts of an Event Program?

When designing your event program, there are a couple of necessities that you should be sure to include. You will have to include an introduction (whether that is a director’s note, or a welcome page), a thank you page, information about your event, organization, milestones, and mission, information about the participants of the event (like the cast of a show), testimonials, upcoming events, items for sale, and advertisements. Click here to go to Our Guide to Entertainment Program Printing.

How Do I Sell Ad Space in Event Programs?

The key is to show that advertising in your event program will benefit all parties involved and that it’s a great way to advertise their business. Make sure that the sponsor sees how they can benefit from the partnership and convince them that buying advertising space in your event program is a great marketing decision for their company.

Quality of the paper is excellent; delivery was faster than expected! The #1 reason to use PrintingCenterUSA is the customer service. My nonprofit dance company has produced several programs and a calendar with them and every time has been a good experience. We receive prompt replies from emails, a live person picking up the phone, and careful attention to our needs. Highly recommend!

The programs turned out beautifully and the online design tool was easy to use. I will definitely use PrintingCenterUSA for next year's program. My only criticism is that, when you use the online design tool, there's no way to upload the file for proofing and printing. Instead, the tech guys need to pull the file from your account. It would have been helpful to know that in advance.

Once again my programs were top quality. I will not use any other company for my dance recital programs. The colors were sharp and the printing was flawless. My pictures do not do it justice.
