Information on submission for a color catalog:
Catalog printing files must be submitted in a single page format all in one file. Please do not submit a separate file for each page. Please note that all pages in your file must be in the proper sequence required: outside front cover is page one, inside front cover is page two, etc. For more information, view our Tips in Printing Catalogs.
Cover options for catalog printing:
Self cover vs. plus cover:
Catalog printing as a self cover means that the cover is printed on the same weight stock as the inside pages. Catalog printing as a plus cover means that the catalog cover is heavier than the inside pages. Your catalog printing can be done either way.
Catalog binding options:
There are generally (4) four binding methods used in color catalog printing.
Saddlestitched– A saddlestitched catalog printing project is folded in half and has a least 2 staples in it. Generally most lower page count catalog printing projects will be saddlestitched.
Perfect Bound– When your catalog printing page count gets higher than 60 pages it’s time to consider perfect binding. A perfect bound catalog printing project has a square spine and the pages are glued in place.
Plastic Coil Binding– The continuous plastic coil is available in a wide range of colors and sizes. The finished catalog will open up and lay flat and the plastic coil binding is very durable.
Wire-o-binding– This form of binding behaves much the same as plastic coil binding, except that metal wire is used instead of plastic.
The USA Printing Online web site offers only saddlestitching in the catalog printing options. But, we can do any of the above binding options. If you have any questions about binding any catalog printing project, please call us to discuss the options. Custom Catalog Printing Services.
