Catalog Printing Tips to Save Money


Communication is very essential for any business and one of the best ways to keep in touch with your customers is through the use of the business catalog. Being this useful, it is important to have your company’s catalog well designed and printed. Here are a few tips for your effective and pocket friendly catalog printing;

Determine page number. A standard business catalog can be anything from 32 pages.   It goes without saying, the number of pages your catalogue will have will be proportional to the amount of money you are likely to spend printing it.  However, this does not necessarily mean that you limit yourself to a minimum number of pages. Ideally, choose a page count format that will best suit the amount of content you need to put you there.

Choosing the right page size; another way to save on both time and cost while printing your company’s catalog, is by choosing the right page size. Usually, cost here is affected by the page width, the smaller the lower the cost. The bottomline here is the number of rolls of paper you will require for your catalog printing. Basically, the lesser paper you use the lower the printing cost. This can also save you on the mailing cost.

Another way to save on catalog printing is by use of the right type of paper. The cover page will obviously require a heavier page than the insides. Usually, the cover is the most important page of the catalog and will determine how much attention it will be accorded. As such it will be useful to have a few color combinations for the catalog. Catalogs are usually printed on more than one color. Regardless, always remember that people are more likely to be attracted by bright, full colored images.
