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 almost didn't use them because of some of the reviews I found on the internet, but for the price, I decided to risk it. Now, I'm VERY glad I did! I will admit to being high maintenance. I was nervous because this was a new process for me, so I called three times before I submitted my file. Every time, I spoke to a person right away. They were supportive and able to answer my questions easily, making me feel like I wasn't talking to a random customer service rep. The women who answered each time was knowledgeable and helpful, making my decisions easier with their experience. Mary put the proof together and it looked fantastic, except somehow I missed an issue in the endnotes so I had to reject the proof and resubmit. Even though it was my delay, she got the second proof back to me in an hour so we could get it into production the next day. The books were delivered one business day early and the quality was exactly what we expected. They wrapped the books together free (which is something you pay for at other printers), allowing for no damage to any of them during shipping. I will definitely use them again. The customer service alone would be enough for me to stick with them, but they also had the best price. Very happy I decided to give them a try.

So many of the booklets were trimmed & bound improperly. I stayed well within the design confines, but the result makes our brand look unprofessional. The print is nice, but I'm pretty stunned with everything else, considering "printing" is in the company name. Real disappointed.

Over half of my booklets were bent significantly in one of the corners. The shrink wrap was pulled so tightly that they buckled. It all could have been easily prevented by putting a piece of cardboard on both sides of the bundle and then wrapping but they didn't do that. The paper simple crumbled under the tension. I complained immediately, they responded with questions immediately and then I responded to that instantly ... Now they're gone dark and haven't told me anything about remediation.
