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.

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.

This was my first time to publish a booklet and it could not have been a better experience! From beginning to end, the pros at PrintingCenterUSA suggested a great Graphics Designer to make my project "pop", explained every step and made it seamless as we went thru the process. It was such a good experience, I decided to do two more booklets on similar subjects and PrintingCenterUSA will be the publisher I turn to to make it not only fun but absolutely professional! Thanks you PrintingCenterUSA!

If I could give more than a 5-Star rating, I would. I was totally impressed with the professional workmanship of PrintingCenterUSA. Mine was a small job regarding the printing of a booklet about family history. Since I had never done anything like this before, I wasn’t sure about the details of printing something up. Their web site provided all the information I needed and they even sent me packet of information which included samples of the different types of paper I could choose. When I emailed any questions I had, expecting to hear from them in a day or two, my email was answered immediately from a representative of the company who handled the printing job from start of finish. Their web site keeps you informed of the progress of the job. I received the booklets just when they said I would and I was extremely happy with the finished product. The finished product was done both professionally and promptly. The price was fair, too. I want to thank the company associate, Kassie, who did a great job with my booklet. I would use PrintingCenterUSA again and would highly recommend it to anyone needing a quality printing job.

The books very delivered on time. I haven't seen the booklets in person since it was sent to a client, but the client seems very happy. I had also called customer service BEFORE I placed my order to ask questions about the printing process and they were super helpful. I've ordered books from them multiple times and the customer service has always been great. Just make sure to include some time cushion when ordering since the delivery times are estimates. In this case, they delivered right on time! Very pleased with the service.

We have ordered booklets from Printing Center USA ten times in since 2018. The booklets are consistently high quality and free from errors. The first few times we ordered, their tech support walked us through the process but now both with new booklets and exact reprints of previous orders, the process is intuitive and seamless for us. Great job, I recommend them highly, and we will continue ordering our booklets through this company.

the booklets were printed quickly. I had to submit a revised proof and it was a quick process. I would definitely use this vendor again. I give 4 stars instead of 5 because there was a streak on the cover of my booklets that was not in the digital proof, but the booklets are still usable so I am not re-doing (would be a big waste of paper!), but the company has clearly outlined steps for if I wanted to redo! I'm also giving 4 stars because the communication was confusing, through not impossible to figure out.
