File setup requirements and tips
Please note the following regarding your document setup: These are the minimum and maximum dimensions for saddle stitch booklets.

 

Booklet Sizing Requirements Minimum and Maximum

*The maximum size for booklets printed on the Linen Paper is 8.85" X 11.7".

  • Please note that the finished size is Width X Height.
  • The largest sizes are current available for the following paper stocks and weights: Premium Gloss and Premium Matte 100# Cover and 100# Text, and Uncoated Smooth 80# Cover.
  • 5.5 x 8.5 booklet, the pages in your document should also be 5.5 x 8.5. Be sure to include an additional 1/8" bleed on all 4 sides of the page.
  • Make sure your document has the same number of pages as what is being ordered (this number must be divisible by 4). So if you are ordering a 16-page booklet, then your document should also contain 16 pages. You can add blank pages as necessary to make page count.
  • The first two pages and the last two pages of your document will be your booklet cover. If you do not wish to have any printing on the inside covers of your booklet, then simply include blank pages in your document.
  • Please enter the total number of sides (not sheets of paper), including any cover pages.

Paper thickness affects the thickness of the booklet and therefore Saddle Stitched Booklets have page count limits. The page count below includes the cover. Please note the following regarding your saddle stitch booklet page count and paper type:

  • With cover weight stock for both cover and interior pages, the maximum page count is 20
    • For books larger than 9 x 12, maximum page count is 16
  • With the synthetic (waterproof) stock, the maximum page count is 40
    • For books larger than 9 x 12, maximum page count for 6 mil is 24 & 10 mils is 12
  • With 100# text weight for interior pages, the booklet can be a maximum of 60 pages
    • For books larger than 9 x 12, the maximum is 44 pages
  • With 80# text weight for interior pages, the booklet can be a maximum of 80 pages
    • For books larger than 9 x 12, the maximum page count is 60
  • If your page count is higher than the listed page limits, please consider perfect bound, spiral coil or wire coil booklet.

Excellent Result

Comments about Booklets:

We were very happy with the result of our booklet. We received our order on time and it was everything we had hoped for. I also liked the pricing we received as I had been using somebody else that was much higher. I must admit i was a bit worried about ordering on line through a company i didn't know but i am sure glad i did.

Helpful service and beautiful product

By Gina

Comments about Booklets:

Prior to placing my order, I called 3 times with questions and each time not only did a person answer, but they were exceptionally helpful. They even tried to help me with a question about the software I was using (put me on hold and asked colleagues in the office) and emailed me links with the needed information. The product was shipped according to schedule. And the finished product was nothing but stellar....it was a playbill for a community theater and the paper quality and crispness of the printing won over rave reviews, being told it was the nicest anyone had ever seen. What was even better is the pricing was much lower than what everyone on my team expected, so everyone was beyond happy!

The booklet I ordered was a 40+ page. The binding, trim, color, everything, was very well done.
I'd say better than our local printers.

Comments about Booklets:

We publish a newsletter 6 times a year and Smartpress has been an excellent company to work with. We appreciate the communication and professional way of doing business. However, I find the new ordering system to be confusing and more time-consuming than it used to be.

Beautiful booklets

Comments about Booklets:

I created my booklets as wholesale catalogs for retailers interested in carrying my brand. I love the quality of the catalogs and everyone who has received one has said that they're beautifully done :) I did add in some full bleed photos and they got just a touch muddy, but really that's just a note for me to add in some extra brightness in production ;)
