If you're in the market for online brochure printing, then please just try our online brochure printing tool. It's as simple as completing a few fields, and just o make things super simple, we've brought everything onto this page.
As our online brochure printing tool is targeted towards trade users, i.e. Marketing Managers and Graphic Designers, you might not understand a few of the words in the form. Not to worry, though. We've also included a step-by-step online brochure printing instructional to make the process easier for everyone.
Step 1. Name: Enter your jobs name.
Step 2. Category: Under Catagory, select Brochures and Flyers
Step 3. Trim Size. Trim size represents the size of your brochure when it is unfolded and laid out flat. For example. A Tri-Brochure is usually A4 to DL, so the open size / trim size is A4.
Step 4. Orientation, meaning either Portrait or Landscape of the finished product. Portrait means the print is taller than it is wide, and Landscape means Wider than it is tall.
Step 5. Stock: Stock refers to the paper stock you want your brochures to be printed on. They can be either High Gloss, Uncoated, or Matt. The GSM refers to the paper-weight, and so for most brochure and letterbox drop material, 150gsm and 170gsm Gloss or Matt is normal. Here's a Hint... Matt is Also referred to as Satin and Silk.
Step 6. Quantity: To select your print quantity, use the sliding scale or manually type in your quantity to the empty field below the sliding scale.
Step 7. Offset vs Digital. Offset Printing is more cost-effective at higher numbers while digital printing is suited to lower numbers. For the most part, if you need 500 to 1000 or more brochures, you'll select the Offset option. If you're only after 50 though, then you can select the Digital option. Experiment with this and learn how it works.
Step 8. Front & Back: These options are asking if you want your online brochure to be printed in colour or black & white, and front side only or front and back? This still refers to the brochure in its open trim size, so before it's folded.
Step 9: Fold: The next option you'll see if Fold. As the title and available options would suggest, this refers to how you want the open brochure size folded down to it's completed size. Each different Trim Size (Open Size) will present you with different Folding size options. This is because as the starting Trim Size becomes smaller, there are fewer folds that can then be done to it.
Step 10 and 11: Perforating And Scoring: Unless you know you need perforation and scoring, then you probably don't need it and can ignore these two buttons. Scoring means impressing the paper stock before it folded to help it fold smooth and clean. This normally only applies to stocks above 250gsm. Most brochures are only ever 170gsm and below, and so these two options are here for the 3% of custom fold brochures.

Step 12. Mail House. If your brochures are going to be letterbox dropped, then they might end up at one of the following mail house addresses.

The Mail House option will also allow you to add additional fields, for example, a Booking Number and a Campaign Name.
Step 13. Packing Instructions. Unless advised otherwise, we'll produce and pack your brochures in the most efficient way possible. Here's is your opportunity to advise of another packing instruction, such as bundled in 200s in rubber-bands, shrink-wrapped and etc.
