How To Cheaply Print Your Booklet
As anyone who has tried to print a booklet knows, they are not cheap. Even printing ten or twenty copies can be a frustrating endeavor if you aren’t willing to spend some extra money. However, printing booklets doesn’t need to be expensive, and you can do a couple of things to make sure that your booklet is cheap without cutting quality.
Keep It Standard
A lot of people want to make different sized booklets, but think about what your booklet is going to be used for. Does it really make sense to have a huge book if you want the information to be carried in someone’s pocket?
Plus, having your book be standard size also helps to save money during the booklet printing process because there is little waste in the production.
How Your Book Should Be Bound
While we do all love the idea of a square spine wrapping around our books and displaying the title, it is an expensive way to bind your booklet. However, saddle-stitched binding, or having two staples that hold the entire book together, is still a straightforward way to secure your printed booklets.
It’s very inexpensive, and for its simplicity, the saddle-stitched method of binding is one of the most professional looking bindings for its price. If you look at most smaller books, they use this form of binding, and they sell pretty well.
Keep It In Black and White
While this won’t be too much of a problem if your book doesn’t have pictures, you should keep the majority of your book in black and white. Having color for the outside cover is usually within most people’s budget, so you can splurge on that.
All of these tips can make sure that your booklets are all printed both within budget and on schedule!
