There are two types of booklets that can be made: plus-cover booklets and self-cover booklets.
Plus-cover Books/Booklets use a heavier stock for the cover than the pages within. This style is typically used for directories, catalogs, annual reports, and calendars. A heavier stock cover adds durability to pieces that will get a lot of use. Plus-cover booklets can be bound in a number of ways, including saddle stitching, perfect binding, plasticoil binding, and double loop wiro binding.
Self-cover Books/Booklets do not have a hardcover. Instead, the “cover” is the same paper weight and stock as the pages within. This style is typically used for newsletters and magazines. Self-cover booklets are limited to saddle stitch binding, where the page spreads are folded in half and then fastened together with two staples on the fold. Saddle-stitched booklets must have a page count that is a multiple of 4.
Begin as flat pieces before they are cut, folded, and bound, Bound products include like newsletters, magazines, catalogs, and calendars.
Begin as flat pieces. They are then folded in the bindery department after printing and finishing. These products include brochures, fold-over cards, maps, and pocket folders.
Are just that: flat pieces of paper with your design and information on them. They may include finishing elements, but are not folded or bound in any way. Flat products include business cards, stationery, carbonless forms, flyers and posters, postcards, rack cards, and door hangers.
Are different from the others because they are printed on a unique printer. Gandy Printers can now accommodate sizes up to 60″ wide with the addition of our newest wide format printer. Wide format products include banners, window graphics, wallpapers, car magnets and displays.
