Book Printing FAQs

Our booklets go through an incredible journey before arriving at your door. Different binding types suit different needs. They also take different amounts of time to complete. Here’s a quick run-down of what the different printed booklets binding types means. Stapled (AKA stitched) – books are bound with a long metal wire that’s folded, a bit like a more advanced staple. This affordable option is best used for magazines and sales brochures. Perfect bound – the pages are glued to a spine, creating a clean, polished finish resembling a paperback book. This quality printed booklet is perfect for high end mags, catalogues and prospectuses. Wire bound – this book is bound with a silver coil. It has a hard back and front cover, and is ideal for activity books, manuals and diaries.
Depending on a number of variables, a print order of booklets can cost anywhere between $25 and $25,000, and in some cases, even beyond that. The type of paper you choose to print on has a very heavy influence on the pricing of your print order. Most printers have a set of house stocks that they recommend using when you choose to print with them. Choosing an irregular quantity and one of our non-preferred stocks for your paper will result in an exponentially higher price since it’s harder for us to pair with other jobs when laying out our press sheets to print alongside other projects. Some types of paper require for us to specially order them since they’re rarely used. If we have to special order a stock, it will cost us a little more which translates to the final cost of the job for the customer.
Also known as a “printer’s key” or “publisher’s code,” the number line is a string of numbers printed on the copyright page, and it is used to indicate the print run for the book. They are often printed in descending order (10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1) and the lowest number generally indicates the printing of that particular copy. Publishers began using number lines in the early 1940’s, and there is still not an industry-approved, standardised system for this convention. Therefore, each publisher has its own form of identification.
