Document Print Setups

Booklets

A booklet is document that is folded, then if required, stapled. A booklet has the following properties:

  • As a booklet is folded, there are two pages on one side of paper and two on the back.
  • A booklet will always be made up of multiples of four pages, i.e. 4, 8, 12, etc.
  • The maximum number of pages our solutions supports in a booklet is 52.
  • The PDF uploaded should run the pages from 1 onwards, our solution will deal with setting the pages in the correct order, so for example in an 8 page document the output will be 1,2 with 7,8 on the back, the other sheet will have pages 3,4 with 5,6 on the back.
  • As a booklet must be made up of folded sheets, this means that the largest booklet that can be made is two portrait A4 documents, but landscape must be smaller.

  • There are two types of booklets, left fold and top fold.

Booklets and Spiral Bounds

A spiral bound document is a stack of separate pages that are then connected with a wire spiral.

The main benefit of a spiral is that they can be up to A3 in size and have 100s of pages.

There are the following types

  • Booklet (Side Spiral bound)
  • Booklet (Top Spiral Bound)
  • Single Sided (Side Spiral Bound)
  • Single Sided (Top Spiral Bound)

Single Sided Documents

A single sided document is a sheet that is only printed on one side, also known as simplex. There are several types:

  • Single Page: A standard single sided print.
  • Single Page with Vertical Fold: Single sided by has a fold up the centre, this would create a standing menu for example.
  • Single Page with Horizontal Fold: A single sided document with a horizontal fold, this would create a greeting card, for example. This format is also known as a 'tent fold' because is looks like an old fashioned tent. Note that the back page (top half) will be upside down.
  • Single Sided Loose Leaf: This is a special option for uploading lots of different pages in one file. You might for example send 20 mailers in one file, but all to be separate prints.

Double Sided Documents

A double sided document is a sheet that has both sided printed on, also known as duplex. There are several types:

  • Double Sided: A standard document with both sides printed.
  • Double sided with Vertical Fold: A double sided document with a vertical fold down the middle. This would produce a double sided menu, for example.
  • Double sided with Horizontal Fold: A double sided document with a horizontal fold, this would create a greeting card, for example. This format is also known as a 'tent fold' because is looks like an old fashioned tent. Note that the back page (top half) will be upside down.
  • Double sided with Z Fold: A double sided document with a Z fold in it, creating a document with 6 individual panels on it.
  • Double sided with Gate Fold: A double sided document with a gate fold in it, creating a document with 6 individual panels on it. The gate has the two end panels folding in on top of the centre panel.
  • Double Sided Loose Leaf: This is a special option for uploading lots of different pages in one file. A good example is a deck of cards, where you upload one file, but want 52 loose documents.

Calendar Documents

Calendars are a special type of spiral bounds, they have the following characteristics:

  • The calendar has two separate spirals, in between which is a 'D' shaped hanger and a 'D' cut to accommodate the hanger.
  • Calendars come in single and double sided formats.
  • If you upload a single sided calendar with an extra back page (i.e. not December), then that page will be reversed.

Presentation Folder

Presentation Folder are a special type of four page booklet. A presentation folder is designed to hold documents of approximately the same size, they have the following characteristics:

  • The page should be 5 to 10 mm (1/5 to 2/5 inch) larger than the documents that the presentation folder should hold.
  • Each presentation folder will come with a LOOSE transparent plastic triangular sleeve, these are manually stuck to the inside back page of the folder. These sleeves are appropriate for both A4 and A5 folders.
  • Presentation folders have a single, not double fold, down the spine, so are not appropriate to hold more than 20 documents.

Letterheads

Letterheads are a special type of print. Print from digital printers should not normally be put back through a laser printer; this is because laser printers fuse the toner to page using heat, if then the docuemnt is put back through a laser printer then the toner becomes unfused, creating a shadow print.

This Letterhead option prints the documents using a high temparature printer, which will not be effected by reprinting in a normal laser printer.

These docuemnts come in both single and double sided formats.

Cards

All double sided documentns are printed top to top which may get a bit confusing when you order folded cards. Please make sure you use following page layout to avoid geting your print with text up side down.
