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.
  • Make each page of your document the same size as what is being ordered. So if you are ordering a 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.

With their versatility, you can print booklets for a variety of purposes, such as:

  • employee manuals
  • product catalogs
  • event programs
  • reporting
  • cookbooks
  • membership directories

      Comments about Booklets:

      I needed a quick, inexpensive way to print a small booklet with high quality pictures to teach a short lesson in a tropical country ( I.E. high humidity). AND I had no experience with such a thing.
      The staff were very helpful. The booklet is exactly what I needed at the cost I was hoping for. AND the whole process was speedy (which I desperately needed )! Thank you thank you thank you!!

        Comments about Booklets:

        Was looking for an affordable printer that could do a great job and Smartpress was definitely that.

        I must admit I was very skeptical at first, the first proof was atrocious but I reached out to them and asked how we could improve things and they gave me great tips and the second proof was better but not quite there yet. I gave them more specific details as to how I would like to the final product to be and they did a great job of achieving that. Everyone who I've shown my photo booklet to have complimented the job well done on printing it.

            I ordered these for an event. The day of the event I realized I had ordered 100 instead of 1000. Smart Press worked with me to get the 900 additional printed and ready in time for our event. They were amazing, and the product quality did not suffer at all. We are so grateful for their commitment to excellence!

              Comments about Booklets:

              We ordered booklets as marketing brochures for our company. The finished product itself is just beautiful. Our booklets are very substantive looking and feeling. I can't imagine how they could be any better. I also felt that the price was remarkably affordable. I'd received quotes a few years ago for this custom-sized piece, and they were several times as much as SmartPress. I presume the reason for the price difference is that technology has progressed substantially in that time frame. I tried to upload a picture of my booklets, but the "Preview" button on the Add Media page would not respond to my mouse click so I had to Cancel.

                  I was first attracted to SmartPress several years ago because their online calculator for pricing was so simple and clear, and the prices were great. Since then I've come to know that their quality is stunning, and their online order management is also fantastic. We've gotten runs of "saddle stitched" (I still call them stapled) booklets up to 72 pages, from 300 to 2500 copies. They are so much cleaner, sharper, better colors than previous printers, and (I don't know how they do this) they lay absolutely flat and don't open at all at the center where they are stapled. We've also gotten several orders of DVD case inserts. The color and clarity are stunning. Oh, and their schedules are always on target. My favorite vendor!
