5 Tips for Annual Report Printing

Use your annual report printing to impress your stockholders and potential investors at you next Annual General Meeting.

Our Arizona printing experts have put together these five key design considerations to take your anual report printing plus product specifications, manuals and other printed reports to the next level. These include:

  1. Binding options
  2. Fold out sheet options
  3. Printable report tabs
  4. The right type of paper
  5. Report covers with pockets

Annual Report Binding Options

The type of document binding style you choose for your annual report printing will likely depend on the number of factors. These might include the number pages and durability required, if you will be mailing out copies, and the overall look you want to achieve. Some of the most common types of binding for corporate annual report printing include:

  • SADDLE STITCHING – This is the most affordable method for binding a booklet or annual report. Saddle stitching uses staples down the middle of the folded papers.
  • COMB BINDING – This is the most common style for binding an annual report that allows the report to open flat. Comb binding is available in a variety of thicknesses and colors.
  • COIL BINDING – This is still a reasonably priced option for binding your annual report using a single pre-coiled plastic binding. The report will open flat and easily fold in half.
  • WIRE BINDING – This is the most professional and durable binding for slick and sturdy looking company annual reports.

Print Fold Out Sheets

Fold out sheets within your annual report are a great way to add extra visuals that will impress. You can also include fold out sheets to include larger spreadsheets or detailed financial information that needs more room than your standard page size.

Printable Report Tabs

If your annual report printing will be lengthy why not add printable report tabs to make it easy to find key sections within the report? Your shareholders and investors will thank you when they no longer have to flip through dozens, if not hundreds of pages to find what they are looking for.

Annual Report Paper Stock

Will your standard white paper suffice or would you like to take your report to the next level using laminated or embossed paper? If your corporate annual report printing is colorful and visual, you may opt for full color bleeds to ensure no unprinted edges of paper exist in the final document. The decision of what type of paper stock to use for your annual report will likely be influenced by how many copies you are making, how many pages are in each report, how heavy and thick you want the finished product to be, and so on.

Report Covers with Pockets

Annual report printing that have report covers with built in pockets are functional places for your stakeholders to store their own notes (after the meeting), or a creative place for you to insert some extra SWAG into the report.
