Most Popular Questions
Can I do a full bleed cover on my Booklet? Will the spine show cracking?
The covers of our Booklets (and Calendars) are scored along the spine prior to binding to avoid cracking of the ink along the spine and folds.
The amount of cracking that occurs depends on the type of binding, coating and and/or the colours of your design.
Do I need to adjust my Booklet for creep?
No, your booklet files will be adjusted for creep during our prepress processes.
Do I need to imposition my Booklet files?
No, your booklet files will be impositioned during our prepress processes.
Please supply your design files as single pages (not spreads or imposed) in one PDF. See: Press-ready files for Booklets.
Coil bound booklets: safety margin
When designing a coil bound booklet, it is important to consider the placement of the coil binding.
We recommend a safety margin of 0.625 inches away from the spine of the booklet.
Perfect bound booklets: spine width
When designing your booklet, you can have a wrap-around cover. This cover will need to have allowance for a spine.
The spine width is generally about 3-5mm but will depend on the number of pages, as well as the how thick the paper is – generally 3-5mm.
If you are ordering a perfect bound booklet and need to know the exact spine width, please contact us and our production team will calculate the spine width for your order.
On what side are Booklets bound?
Our Booklets and Calendars are generally bound on the long side.
We can also bind on the short side (additional costs may apply). If you would like to order a booklet bound on the short side, please submit a Print Quote.
How many pages in a calendar?
A 12-month wall calendar generally has 28 pages,
Front Cover (1 page), 12 double-page month spreads (24 pages), double-page year overview (2 pages), back cover (1 page).
A coil bound calendar can have as little as 14 pages.
How to calculate the number of pages
If you are placing an order for booklets, it is important to know how we calculate the number of pages to place your order correctly.
All pages are counted when bound, including the cover. The cover (including inside front cover, inside back cover and back cover) counts as 4 pages.
Standard saddle-stitched booklets are produced by folding multiple sheets of paper in half and then stapling in the centre. As an example, one flat 17" x 11" sheet saddle-stitched to an 8.5" x 11" booklet would count as 4 pages. Using the same example, if two 17" x 11" sheets were saddle-stitched, the result would be an 8.5" x 11" booklet with 8 pages.
Saddle-stitched booklets must have a page count that is a multiple of 4. Coil and perfect bound booklets must have a page count that is a multiple of 2.
- Page 1 Front cover
- Page 2 Inside front cover
- Page 3 First "internal" page (right-hand-side)
- ... internal pages
- 3rd last page Last "internal" page (left-hand-side)
- 2nd last page Inside back cover
- Last page Back cover
Coil and perfect bound booklets are simpler to calculate as no folding is required – single sheets, with 2 sides or pages per sheet, are bounded together resulting with an even page count. For example, seven 5.5" x 8.5" sheets coil bound on the left-hand side will have a total of 14 pages. Perfect bound booklets are produced by wrapping a four-page cover around single sheets of paper and gluing them at the spine.

- Bleed Area
- Trim Area
- Safe Area
Bleed Area refers to images that extend to the very edges of a design. To prevent an unwanted white border from showing at the edge of your design, or for the design to appear slightly off-center, be sure to extend any background colors or design elements all the way to the edge of bleed (.125” past the trim on all four sides).
Trim Area refers to the amount of the image that will appear on your finished product. These areas will also be marked with ‘cut lines’ on your proof and are where we aim to cut your card.
Safety Area in most cases refers to 1/8 of an inch inside of the Trim Area. For thicker papers 20pt and up or wooden papers the Safety Area increases ¼ of an inch inside the Trim Area. we strongly recommend you keep important aspects of your design such as text and logos well inside of the Safety Area, otherwise, they may be cut off.
