Booklets by Type

saddle stitched or stapled booklet icon

Stapled Booklets

What’s the difference between saddle-stitched booklets and stapled booklets? Not as much as you might think. They are two terms for the same process. They are great when you need to include more information than a leaflet can contain. Made up of multiple folded pages stapled together. Starting from 8pp (8 printed pages), which is made up of 2 printed pieces, both folded in half and stapled together. Available from 8pp to 56pp

Perfect Bound Booklets

Perfect-bound booklets are individual leaves or pages glued together down the spine. If your document has too many pages and is too thick to be stapled, then perfect bound book printing may be the perfect solution. Perfect bound printing is commonly used for catalogues, magazines, brochure printing, etc. Available from 40pp up to 120pp

Wiro Bound Booklets

Wiro-bound booklets are similar to classic notebooks you find in any good stationer. All the pages are individual and kept together by the metal ring binding. Wiro-binding is perfect if you want the booklet to open flat without damaging the spine! Create a branded planner, notepad, cooking instructions, guide, or informational booklet.

Booklet Printing Options

We have a range of booklet printing options that cover all uses. From cheap booklet printing to premium finishes. We have different binding options, including staples, saddle stitched, and perfect bound. A range of budget-friendly and premium paper types, paper weights and finishes. We print booklets that you’ll love.

Which binding method is best for your booklet? Which paper is most cost-effective? These are all questions we can answer, so get in touch today.

Booklet Printing by Size & Shape

We offer custom-printed booklets in a range of shapes and sizes. The standard sizes are always available, and you can ask for non-standard sizes, which usually cost a little more but are still great value. We always try to have a selection of excellent quality and cheap booklet printing to suit every need.

Square Booklets

The standard square booklet sizes are 148mm and 210mm. But if that is a little hard to wrap your head around, then we will compare them to A4 and A5.

148mm is the same as the short edge of A5, so if you trimmed off a bit to make A5 square, that is 148mm square.

210mm square is similar but with A4, so if you trimmed off a bit to make A4 square, that is 210mm square.


Rectangular Booklets

A5 and A4 are the two most popular formats for booklet printing and are available bound on the long or short edge for a landscape or portrait orientation.

A6. We also print A6 booklets in portrait as standard.

 DL. The tall and thin DL can make quite the impact as a booklet. 



From 8 printed Pages. What makes a booklet?

A booklet is usually bound, though you could have a 4pp (printed pages) booklet that is one piece of paper folded in half. We tend to call that a folded flyer or leaflet, but it could be seen as a booklet. But if you bind a booklet, then the smallest amount would be 8pp (printed pages), as that is two sheets folded in half and bound together.

Why does it matter? Well, once you know how a booklet is made, it helps you figure out how to design and plan your booklet.

For example, saddle stitched booklets can have pages in multiples of 4, so you get 4pp, 8pp, 12pp, 16pp and so forth. If you design a booklet with 9 or 10 pages, you’ll have to condense it down to 8 or expand it to 12.


Perfect Bound

Perfect binding is a process where pages are glued together. But this is only available from the higher page count. We offer perfect binding from 40pp.

Because the pages are glued together rather than stitched, you can increase pages in multiples of two in some cases.

Feel free to get in touch to check what is available to get your ideal booklets printed.

“grams per square metre”. Our standard paper weight for magazines or brochures is 150gsm, business cards are around 400 gsm, computer printers normally use 90gsm.

Gloss, Silk, and Matt coated paper.

These papers have a clay coating which is finished with different textures that are great for printing and give a fantastic vibrancy to the colour or black & white images.

Matt Uncoated paper.

A Matt paper with no noticeable finish which is ideal for writing on and is commonly used for letterheads and compliment slips.

pp. (Printed Pages).

4pp, 8pp, 12pp etc. As an example, an A4 piece of paper folded in half is a 4pp A5 because it has 4 individual sides, each one A5 in size. Therefore, any books you want must be multiples of four, ie., 4, 8, 12, 16, 20pp etc.



Stands for ‘Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key (black)”, the colour gamut used by printers which determine the range of colours that can be reproduced.
Computer screens work on an RGB – ‘Red, Green and Blue’ – colour gamut, which offers a larger range.
Some colours, particularly bright or fluorescent ones are not achievable when using a CMYK printing process and prints will look different to how they appear on a screen. This is why it is important that your artwork is designed in CMYK as RGB colours will be converted to their closest CMYK substitute.


Lamination finishes work with a plastic coating in various finishes that gives your work a rich brighter look and more protection from everyday use.

Matt lamination

Is a subdued finish that softens colours and adds a smooth texture, ideal for a sophisticated, modern look.

Gloss lamination

Is a high gloss finish that is ultra shiny. It makes colours vibrant, rich punchy, ideal for photographic images.

Soft touch lamination

Gives a very nice feel likened to the texture of a peach. Colours appear deeper and richer than with Matt lamination. A finish that gives your print the utmost in luxury.

Paper Size

As a customer, you don’t normally have to worry about paper size unless it’s to choose a size of poster or – on a smaller scale – a size of booklet or flyer.
Starting with the most commonly used size – A4 (210mm x 297mm), you just double the shortest edge to take you to the next size which is A3 (420mm x 297mm) or half the longest edge to take you down to A5 (210mm x 148mm). So from A5 we go down to A6 (105mm x 148mm) and then A7 (105mm x 74mm). From A3 we go to A2 (420mm x 584mm) and then A1 (584mm x 820mm) and finally to A0 (820mm x 1168mm). There are of course other larger sizes but these are less common in everyday print and you probably won’t need them, however, there are commonly used smaller and ‘different’ sizes such as DL (210mm x 99mm) and business card (55mm x 85mm).

Short Run printing.

For short runs – normally up to 500 copies – we supply digitally printed copies, which gives us great flexibility for customers requirements so that you only need to buy the quantity you need.

Lithographic printing.

For everything over 500 copies, lithography is the world standard for high volume printing and the more you buy, the cheaper the unit price becomes. We use this method for large runs of printed material.

Poster printing.

Never before have large format posters been (financially) within reach of the smaller business, but with our amazingly low prices, A0 or smaller posters are real tools to be utilised by businesses of any size.

Roller banners.

Our roller banners are some of the most cost effective around and with one of our fantastic designs, you will be ready for any marketing opportunity that comes your way.

Vinyl banners (inside or outside).

If it’s an economical, large format sign that your company needs, then a vinyl banner can be an amazing addition to your advertising arsenal. We can supply some of the cheapest ‘bespoke’ designed banners in the south of England and in vinyl weights from 440gsm through 350gsm mesh, to 700gsm double sided banners.

Foam board 3 or 5mm.

For a more permanent looking sign foam board fits the bill for many uses.
It is very light and can be stuck to walls using double sided tape, or framed to appear more pleasing and substantial.

Aluminium Di-bond signage.

Di-bond is two sheets of aluminium with a polyvinyl core, which makes for a very high-quality sign which will withstand the forces of nature for a long time and still look as good as new.
The signs are supplied with screw holes for fitting.

Booklet finishes

Booklets are available in 120gsm uncoated, 130gsm gloss and 150gsm silk. They start from 8pp (printed pages) and are available in multiples of 4 up to 52pp. If you need fewer pages, please see folded leaflets page as they are 4pp each as opposed to 8pp+.

We print full colour (CMYK) throughout. Self-cover or optional thicker 250gm cover pages. Saddle -stitch binding, which is harder wearing than perfect binding.

Booklets are available in: 8pp, 12pp, 16pp, 20pp, 24pp, 28pp, 32pp, 36pp, 40pp, 44pp, 48pp and 52pp.

Design Centre


Intro to Design Centre

We offer affordable design services because we know it can be tricky to design a multi-page booklet if you're inexperienced. There are a lot of hoops to jump through to get print-ready artwork, especially if you aren't a print designer. So firstly, decide if it is worth your time to muddle through, make mistakes and end up paying to have them fixed anyway.



The guide to print bleed and why it's vital for print-ready artwork - With print-ready artwork, the problem we usually find is that no bleed was included. Make sure you read our guide to find out what it is and why it's important. 


Design Templates

We are currently at work creating some design templates to help you create the best print-ready artwork you can. Currently, we ask you to get in touch if you would like us to send you a template - including what you are designing, the size, and what format you require, i.e. Illustrator, InDesign, PDF etc.

But if you are in doubt, ask for a design quote, and we think you'll be pleasantly surprised!
