Brochure & Booklet Printing

Stapled Booklet Printing

Stapled booklets are perfect for when you have a lot of information you’d like to get across.

Commonly used for Catalogues, Order of Services, Event Programmes, In-depth marketing materials and brochures.

Our booklets are saddle stitched (stapled) and finished with a trim for a neat final product.

Saddle stitch books come in pages of 4 multiples, from 8pp to 56pp (inc. cover) and can have a ‘self cover’ (means using the same paper as the inner pages) or a slightly thicker cover (recommended on larger books).

For larger brochures, it is quite common for the cover (typically 4 pages) to be printed on heavier stock and the inner text pages to be printed on the lower weight.

Finishing options for your Brochure printing

If you are looking for special finishes – we recommend you get in touch to discuss your brochure or booklet printing. We can make sure we get the right specification and the right price for your print project.


Lamination options*: available on 250gsm+ cover weights

  • Matt Lamination – often results in a lower contrast on darker colours, producing a softer look for your brochures or booklets. Can also protect printed brochures from scratches or scuffs
  • Gloss Lamination – A shiny finish that reflects the light to make colours and pictures zing. Also provides protection to the brochure cover against dirt or fingerprints


Spot UV options:

  • Matt Lamination & Front Spot UV – Spot UV varnish adds a highlight with a reflective gloss finish over a particular area. This is typically a logo or coloured pictures. Helps produce a high impact finish for your brochure.
