Booklets

Booklets are multi-page bound documents. They are frequently used to print glossy sales tools. Booklets that are intended to be kept for longer periods of time often have covers printed on thicker stock for durability. The most common way to bind booklets is with saddle stitching, however we also offer additional binding options.
