DESIGNING BOOKLETS
Before you start, are you sure you’ve got the skills to tackle a project
of this size? Designing a Booklet requires a lot more experience
than Business Cards or Leafl ets. If you’re certain you want to design
it yourself, read the whole of this guide and follow this additional
advice. It’s best to call us before you start work – it may save you some
heartache later on.
DESIGN AS SINGLE PAGES
Create a separate page in your artwork for each page of your Booklet.
You can supply as a multi-page document or as one document per
page. Please don’t supply as “printer’s pairs” or spreads.
ADD 3MM BLEED TO EACH SIDE
add 3mm
Booklets need more bleed than other products. Look at the fi nished
page size of the Booklet. Add 3mm to all sides of your page – a total
bleed
of 6mm across each axis. You even need to add bleed to the edge
to each
which forms the spine. Our process chops this off and merges the spine
side when
together.

AVOID OBJECTS WHICH CROSS PAGES
booklets
It’s unlikely that objects which cross
pages will line up exactly. It’s best
to avoid them, or accept that there
will be some vertical movement
throughout your Booklet. You’ll also
need to allow for the bleed being
trimmed off – ask us if you’re not
sure.

COLOURS
colours
Avoid trying to match colours throughout the booklet. Some colour
throughout
variation is inherent in the process and will be most noticeable where
the booklet
two pages of the same colour meet.
