Brochures

Are you thinking about a new brochure?

There is a number of ways to produce a brochure but the most popular options our clients choose are perfect bound and saddle stitched brochures. So what are they and what is the difference?


Perfect bound brochures

Perfect bound brochures are a fantastic choice when you want a premium finish to your documents; from a simple brochure, magazine or product catalogue all the way through to a bespoke company brochure with a page count from 40 up to 240 printed pages and quantities from 50 to 100,000.

Choose perfect binding for a premium printed booklet. Using a PUR adhesive, these booklets are built to last and can handle heavy paper stocks and a high page volume. Mix and match from a wide range of cover and inner stocks and a choice of custom sizes up to A4.

There are also up to five choices of paper for the cover and eight choices of paper for the inner pages, to help you create the perfect brochure combination. Our brochures come in a choice of sizes from A6 (105 x 148mm), A5 (148 x 210mm) or A4 (210 x 297mm).

The overall quality can be enhanced by adding a luxurious finish such as a gloss, matt or a soft touch laminated cover.

Once printed, the pages and cover are glued together at the spine with a strong, flexible thermal glue; the remaining sides are trimmed to give clean ‘perfect’ edges – hence the name. Our perfect bound brochures are up to 60% stronger due to the use of a Polyurethane Reactive (PUR) adhesive, making them ideal for use with heavy paper stocks and a large number of pages.

Saddle stitched brochures

Brochures are still one of the best marketing resources for any purpose. Saddle stitched brochures make photographs come alive and are ideal for conveying exciting messages, such as hospitality and entertainment packages, estate agent home features, and more.

Inspire your customers with a multitude of ways to promote their message with saddle stitched brochures.

If you only need a small amount of pages from 8 up to 100, then our saddle stitched brochures are the ideal solution for your brochures, magazines, catalogues, manuals and newsletters at a very affordable price, with quantities from 50 to 15,000.

Saddle stitched binding is an affordable option for creating booklets. With a low minimum order quantity and custom sizes, saddle stitch is the perfect choice for brochures with lower page counts and shorter lead times.

There are a wide range of paper stock options in both coated and uncoated and a choice of cover materials too, from 130gsm gloss all the way up to 300gsm coated paper. Available in a range of sizes from A6 (105 x 148mm), A5 (148 x 210mm) or A4 (210 x 297mm), 210mm square.

Once printed, the pages are nested and stitched together with wire, forming ‘staples’ through the folded spine. If you want a really high quality finish, you can choose a gloss, matt or soft touch laminated cover.

With such choice available the possibilities are endless, but we are always here to help you make the right choice for your business.
