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.

How to arrange pages for saddle stitch printing?

With the saddle stitch method, the pages of the booklet are printed on large sheets of paper and then folded in half, which is why you must have a page count that is evenly divisible by 4. We can print saddle stitch orders that are 8 - 92 pages. Click Here to learn more about page count for saddle stitch.

Does saddle stitch lay flat?

Saddle stitch bound books and booklets do lay flat. This makes them a great option for projects such as coloring books, as you don’t need to hold them open the entire time. Depending on how many pages you have in your product, there might be a slight “poof” in the center of the pages, but it will still lay flat.

What is saddle stitch booklet printing?

Saddle stitch booklet printing is when four pages are printed onto one sheet of paper (two on the front, two on the back) and then collated in a way that, when folded and stapled through the midline, the pages appear in sequential order. Click here to learn more.

Can I print crossovers with saddle stitch?

Yes! Saddle stitch binding allows for crossovers to be executed without losing a portion of the image in the binding center, like with perfect bound.

I wanted to like this vendor I recently found, but unfortunately will need to find another one. Main reasons for dissatisfaction are: - Printing quality is very low. The darker colors look faded, making me think they use little ink and that's why the price is low. - One of the packages is missing and no good support on the missing piece. I've been tracking every week, but no good reply. It's been missing almost 4 weeks and I just asked for a refund. I'm not sure if they'll send us a refund.

I had to create a Class Directory for our High School Reunion. The booklets could not have been any nicer. A beautiful, professional job at an extremely reasonable price. They even sent me an email to alert me to low resolution images on the original submitted project. I was then able to edit those images and the final project is excellent! This company is superb.

I became editor of our American Daylily Society Region 6 newsletter almost 3 years ago and started using Printing Center USA to print all our news magazines. We went from being a so-what newsletter to something everyone looks forward to. We were honored at our recent National Convention to receive the Best Newsletter award for 2020. I believe part of the reason everyone likes is the beautiful colors of the photos and nice paper. More and more people are now sending in articles and photos to be published,.
