A stunning, professional brochure is the difference between attracting new clients and having your sales pitch fall flat. Corporate brochures promote your company’s products or services and showcase why your solution is best suited to your clients’ needs. They’re the perfect compliment to important investment pitches, make ideal itinerary programmes for special events, or can be a high-quality training manual for your staff. Our printing services ensure your brochures are eye-catching and professional to help grow your business in style.
How to Print Your Brochure
How to upload your files
We accept single or combined files for your brochure. Send us single pages as individual files, or put the entire thing into one file – we’ll work with it either way.
The cover of your brochure actually consists of four pages: the front cover, the inside front cover, the back cover, and the inside back cover. Make sure you plan your cover content appropriately.
All of our brochures have a 3mm bleed so please do not put any important content in this area.
We have three binding options available for brochures, including saddle stitched (stapled), perfect bound, or wiro bound. Please note that your binding option may depend on the number of pages in your brochure. For example, too few pages won’t work for perfect bound, and too many pages could be too much for stapled. When you enter the number of pages for your brochure, our ordering system will switch automatically to the best binding option.
Spine for Perfect Bound
If you choose a perfect bound brochure – which means holding your pages together by adhesive to create a spine – you will need a separate print file for the spine. You can see the dimensions of your spine in your shopping cart when inputting your order, and please note that we require a 3mm bleed for spines on both the top and bottom. If you do not submit a file for the content on your spine, we will leave it blank.
Complete Your Order
You cannot complete your order without filling in all placeholders. You can add pages to your brochure in multiples of 4, and you must ensure each box has content before ordering. If you have 16 pages, for example, all 16 boxes must have content. If you don’t have that many pages designed, you must add blank pages to your brochure.
