Description

Catalogs are multi-page bound documents. They can range from glossy product sales tools to corporate training aides. Catalogs often provide comprehensive information about the range of products or services offered by the publisher. Catalogs that are intended to be kept for longer periods of time often have covers printed on thicker stock for durability.

Our Catalogs are bound with saddle stitching. For other binding options, please submit a custom estimate request by clicking "Estimates" at the top of the page.

  • 4/1 (Full Color Front / B&W Back)
  • 4/0 (Full Color Front Side Only)

4/4

Note: Full color (also known as 4-color or CMYK) consists of professionally printing combinations of 4 ink colors (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK) to produce most colors. The correct ink mix is automatically calculated with our Design Online software as you create the piece. When you design and upload your own graphic/photo files be sure they are created as CMYK color format rather than RGB color format.

4/4 is full color on both sides of the sheet. This option can reproduce the range of colors you see in a typical photograph out of the standard 4 printing colors: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Typical examples of this are magazine covers and high-end catalogs.

Quantity

The quantity available is dependent on the order specifications you choose. To see available quantities, complete all order specifications in the pricing calculator and click on the "Quantity" dropdown menu.

Due to our printing process, we print in specific quantity increments.

If you need a quantity not listed, choose the next larger quantity and then let us know how many units you would like shipped and we will recycle the excess for you.

For example, if you would like 700 units, you can order 1000 units and let us know you only want 700 shipped. We will responsibly dispose of the extras.

We typically print more than the quantity ordered. Because printing is a manufacturing process, the total finished quantity may vary. We usually ship a few more than you order, but sometimes quantities can vary +/- 5%. Standard industry procedure is to consider this range shipment in full.

When to choose Offset

4-Color Offset printing (also known as full color or CMYK) is ideal for lower prices on large quantity orders or any time you would like coating on your products.

Almost always, people choose this option when ordering large quantities.
