Branded Booklets: Southport Printing Co. Have A Range of Finishes and Sizes Available

When it comes to professionally bound projects like magazines, annual reports or virtually any kind of booklets, Southport Printing Co. have the right solution for you.

Booklets encompass any kind of multi page document that has some kind of way to fasten the pages together – they’re “bound” together which is where the term binding comes from, even though we typically associate it with things like wire binding, plasticoil and other types of spiral bind options with the clear cover. It can also mean things like saddle stitched or loop stitched spines, like you often see with journals and magazines but don’t overthink it too much – even stapled books are considered booklets that have had binding applied!  Binding can be completed on print projects that have been completed via either digital printing or offset printing technologies.

With a range of finishing options available to turn your document into a polished book or booklet, you can easily be your own publisher.

Types of Booklets

Virtually any multi-page document can be a booklet but we’ll discuss booklet and binding options for you for projects like your catalogue; large documents like an instructional manual; a school year book and other types of books such as a cook book, look book or coffee table book; anything that has a magazine or journal style.

Multi-page refers to anything more than one so don’t think that because your report is only 20 pages it will be easier to publish and staple it in the office – we have options available for small and large documents and will make a recommendation to suit both the size and style of the file, it’s intended use and your budget and time constraints.

Booklet and Binding Options

  • A5, A4, A3 or custom size book available
  • Full colour printing throughout on a range of paper and cardstock options
  • Saddle stitched (2 wire staples) with a variety of cover options available – some can be a soft or self-cover which means it’s the same type of paper as the internal pages, others need a stronger cover, depending on the finish you prefer or the number of pages in the document.
  • Adhesives like PUR which bind the pages together at the spine. This is also known as “perfect binding” and is ideal for large books.
  • Spiral bind books (wiro/wire binding or plasticoil which is that plastic “comb” style you’ve probably seen before) which can have printed or PVC covers.
  • Full-service design and print or print only options.
