How Are Booklet and Brochure Printing Different?

A common question that we often get asked here at PRI Graphics in Phoenix AZ is “How are booklet and brochure printing different.” For this post, we’ll also include flyers and mailer printing.

Booklet and Brochure Printing Differences

Yes, these are similar promotional materials used by businesses, schools, charities, and other organizations, but there seems to be some confusion on the purpose of each and when to use each media.

In this blog post by PRI Graphics, our Phoenix printing experts will explain how booklet and brochure printing can differ and how these different print services are commonly used. We’ll do the same for flyers and mailers. We’ll explore the advantages of each so that you can select the best print media suited to meet your commercial or personal printing needs.

Booklet Printing

Printing booklets involves multiple pages that have a magazine-like look with a high-gloss (or a book-like) finish. Printed booklets are commonly used for:

  • Instruction manuals
  • Training manuals
  • Catalogs
  • Annual reports

Printed booklets can often be bound in a variety of ways for durability and long-lasting use. The pages may require scoring (making a crease so the paper folds easily) and cutting. Professional booklet and brochure printing services are both available in single color or full-color printing options.

Brochure Printing

Printed brochures are quite affordable and generally done with standard printing paper in black and white fashion. You can also select to use superior quality paper with advanced color printing techniques that can give your brochures a high-gloss or semi-gloss look. These advanced printing options can produce booklet and brochure printing, as well as pamphlets that are more durable and more suitable for repeat use. See also our article on Creative Brochure Design Ideas. Brochure printing is commonly used for:

  • Take-out menus
  • Handouts for meetings
  • Educational or information purposes

Printed brochures are quite affordable and generally done with standard printing paper in black and white fashion, but you can also select to use superior quality paper with advanced printing techniques, which can give the brochures a high-gloss or semi-gloss look. These advanced printing options produce brochures and pamphlets that are more durable and more suitable for repeat use.

Along with booklet and brochure printing, let’s also take a look at printing flyers, leaflets, and promotional mailers.

Flyers and Leaflet Printing

In general, printing flyers and leaflets is done for the purpose of communicating a small amount of information to a large number of people but in an affordable way. Flyer and leaflet printing is commonly used for, among others:

  • Guerilla marketing campaigns
  • Real estate property listings
  • Event advertisements

Often, flyers and leaflets are printed on plain white or color printer paper. However, many people choose to print flyers and leaflets on semi-gloss or high-gloss paper to try and stand out or to give the flyers a more professional look. For example, real estate agents will often use semi-gloss or high-gloss flyer printing with full-color images. These printed property flyers are often placed with for sale signs in front yards.

Promotional Mailer Printing

Print mailers are generally printed as small handouts or postcards. Along with booklet and brochure printing, PRI Graphics in Phoenix AZ prints a lot of print mailers and direct mail marketing materials for all kinds of usages including:

  • Promotional purposes
  • Marketing purposes
  • Announcements
  • And various other reasons

Custom printed mailers give you the flexibility to control the cost of postage. Mailers are usually printed on card stock and can be in full-color, two-color, or four-color. Printed mailers may also include flyers, letters, brochures, or other items that are mailed inside an envelope. PRI Graphics offers professional printing services to print in bulk quantities as well as to fold mailers and stuff envelopes.

What is Digital Printing vs Offset Printing?

Often, we’re asked to explain the pros and cons of digital vs offset printing so we asked our PRI Graphics printing experts in Phoenix Arizona to explain the differences.

Digital vs Offset Printing – What is Digital Printing

With digital printing, digital files are created on a computer using publishing software, photo software, or mapping software, and are then sent to the printer (over WiFi or Cat 5 cable) where the images, maps, or photos are transferred or printed onto paper. Both laser printers and inkjet printers can be referred to as digital printers.

Laser Printers

With digital laser printing, the laser printer charges the paper with electricity in the intricate shape of the photo, text, or map. Once the printer toner is released onto the paper, it only adheres where the paper has been charged, and the balance of unused toner is often expelled. A digital color laser printer can usually only utilize colors from the CMYK color palette. This limits their color output range, specifically where gradients or graduated fills are involved. However, digital laser printers are fast for anyone that needs a quick turnaround on digital laser printing!

Inkjet Printers

With digital inkjet printing, the inkjet printer doesn’t require paper charging. Instead, ink is released from ink cartridges contained in the printer that sprays the picture, letters, or map images directly onto the paper or other mediums. Because color inkjet printers traditionally use the RGB color palette, their range of colors is much larger. However, digital inkjet printing is not as quick as laser printing. Inkjet printers offer more detail and the final printing more closely resembles photographs as a result of the inkjet printer’s color range. Since inkjet printers are much slower than digital laser printers, inkjet printers are not usually used for high volume printing projects.

Digital vs Offset Printing – What is Offset Printing

One similarity in digital vs offset printing is that digital files can often be created for use in offset printing as well. However, these digital files are not transferred directly to the printer. Instead, the digital files are used to burn plates that are then attached to the offset printer. Inked images (of text or graphics) from the plate are transferred to a rubber blanket on the offset printing press, which in turn transfers the image directly onto whatever type of substrate is being used.

Offset printers come in a wide range of sizes and can print on a wide range of substrates. They are incredibly fast; much faster than either laser or inkjet digital printing. When it comes to digital vs offset printing, offset printing is generally used for more extensive printing projects that encompass printing thousands or even millions of pages.

What is UV Ink Curing in Printing?

You may have heard that Phoenix printers PRI Graphics now has UV curable ink printers…but what is UV ink printing and what does it mean for your next large format print job?

Ultra violet curing (UV curing) is a green technology that uses a photomechanical process to instantly dry ink after printing. This means that you can print on virtually any type of non-absorbant material including glass, wood, metal, vinyl materials, and more. With UV curable ink, the ink isn’t absorbed by the material so there’s no smudging and no need for additional costly coatings.

Another great thing about UV cured inks is that they are weather-resistant and are not prone to fading. There are no solvents, no evaporaton and it’s a low temperature process.

Basically, the exposure to UV energy triggers a chemical reaction and causes the ink to instantly harden and is a much better alternative to solvent-based ink products. UV curable ink is not only used by local print shops like us but also in all kinds of industries including automotive, electronics, telecommunications, and more.

UV Curable Ink Printing Advantages

The top UV ink benefits to consider include:

  • Scratch and abrasion resistance
  • Better chemical and solvent resistance
  • Superior bonding
  • Eco-friendly – no emissions
  • Improved gloss
  • Superior outdoor durability

Durable UV curable ink dries or cures instantaneosly and is already dry when it comes out of the printer. This makes it ideal for printing on outdoor banners including mesh banners. For more information, see our article on mesh banners vs. vinyl banners.

PRI Graphics uses UV curable ink for all our large format vinyl graphics as an eco-friendly and superior print product for all our customers throughout Phoenix, Arizona.

UV Flatbed Printing – How Does it Work?

You may have done some flatbed printing before or simply wondered how does a UV flatbed printing machine work?

We get asked many times about how a UV flatbed printing machine can print such enormously large graphics on a variety of surfaces (substrates) smooth or rough — without having the ink bleed or run off of the surface?

Flatbed Printer Ink

A UV flatbed printing machine works very similarly to an inkjet printer you might have in your office. The main difference for a UV flatbed printer is:

  • The type of ink used – usually UV ink
  • And how the ink is applied to the substrate — the surface being printed upon

Your office inkjet printer applies ink that embeds itself into the paper on which you are printing. UV flatbed printing devices apply UV ink to a substrate and the ink must be cured (dried quickly) to create a permanent image.

UV Ink Curing Process

When a printing project goes through the UV flatbed printing machine, the UV ink is applied, and almost immediately the ink is subjected to ultra-violet light (or some other light source depending on the make and model of printer). This light instantly cures or dries the ink to the substrate surface.

Because the UV ink has very little time to spread out or bleed into the substrate, UV flatbed printing produces amazingly accurate color details with very little if any image loss.

The UV ink hardens to a very strong finish, and is resistant to fading and weathering, depending on the surface being printed upon. The UV flatbed printing process is also more environmentally friendly than some other printing methods.

Flexibility of a UV Flatbed Printing

The UV flatbed printing machine is capable of printing on a variety of unique substances, both smooth and rough, including foam board, wood, aluminum, acrylic, coroplast, and a host of other different types of substrates. See our blog article entitled Direct to Substrate Printing for more information on substrates.

The head of a flatbed printer can raise or lower and allow for printing on very thin surfaces, such as promotional pieces for trade shows, or most often, on thick surfaces, such as office doors.

What is Direct to Substrate Printing?

Direct to substrate printing is a process that applies images directly to the substrate surface.

In printing, a substrate is the base material that the image will be printed on such a plastic film, glass, paper, canvas or other textile products. Before the advent of substrate printing, the desired effect was achieved by printing labels or vinyl decals that were then applied to a substrate.

PRI Graphics in Phoenix and Mesa Arizona offers exceptional, large format flatbed printing services. In this post, our Phoenix printers will explore how advancements in direct to substrate printing technology and equipment have rapidly evolved making substrate printing more affordable and practical.

Substrate Printing Process

Direct to substrate printing is done using a large flatbed UV substrate printer. This printer is capable of applying ink containing acrylic monomers that can then be bonded together to almost any flat substrate. Once the monomers are applied, the substrate is passed through a strong UV light for curing. The curing process polymerizes (binds together) the monomers. This process forms the desired image and adheres the impression to the substrate material.

Options for Direct to Substrate Printing

The substrate printing process can be used to print directly onto durable, long-lasting surfaces such as, among others, foam core, aluminum/metal, Masonite, MDF and MDO Plywood.

More flexible materials can be printed on as well including Flexible PVC, Corrugated boxes, Magnetics and Metallics, DiBond/E-Panel, Styrene, Plexiglass, Ultra Board (in Black or White), and PVC-Sinatra.

What Substrate Printing Does for You

Direct to substrate printing provides you with a substantial range of alternate choices to fit the specific needs of your project or business. Whether it’s indoor promotional announcements or stunning outdoor signage you need, direct to substrate printing provides weather resistance, durability, flexibility, and reusability.

What is White Ink Printing?

Did you know that new white ink digital printing technology now allows us to print white ink on dark paper?

Up until fairly recently, printing in white ink was but a dream. This is because most inks used in offset printing are translucent and translucent white ink does not cover dark paper.

Opaque white inks are sometimes an option but they still require several applications, which increases the cost and turnaround time. Plus, the printing shop would have to spend a considerable amount of time cleaning the printer to ensure that the remains of any other ink colors were wiped clean.

Another option to achieve the effect of printing using white ink was to reverse print, where white letters were created by printing a dark background, leaving the actual white letters blank or void of ink.

The technology behind digital printing has come a long way so that white ink printing services are now available and affordable. Talk with our professional Phoenix printers of PRI Graphics to learn more about your options for printing using white ink. We can be reached toll-free at 1-877-409-8889 or by email.

Using White Ink for Printing

There are two methods of printing using white ink printing on black paper:

  1. Spot Ink – This is where only select objects are rendered by printing white ink on dark paper.
  2. Flood Background – This is where the entire background of the graphic (including clear areas) is printed in white ink.

Please refer to PRI Graphic’s How to Prepare White Ink Print Jobs PDF for further instructions on how to do each.

Benefits of White Ink Digital Printing

There are a number of benefits to printing using white ink:

  • A creative alternative to traditional colored ink options.
  • A larger selection of paper options (print in dark colored paper like black and navy blue).
  • White ink printing is affordable thanks to new digital printing technologies!
  • Digital printing is ideal for short run printing projects (you no longer need to order large quantities for white ink printing).

Get Creative With White Ink Printing

At PRI Graphics, white ink printing can be accomplished on numerous mediums. Here are some common printing ideas that come through our print shops. You can use white ink printing…

Difference Between a Brochure, Flyer and Leaflet

Do you know flyer and leaflet difference or how they differ from a brochure? 

To many people, the difference between a brochure, flyer, leaflet, and pamphlet is difficult to discern. Often customers come to PRI Graphics asking for what they think they want when what they really need is something else.

While there are similarities, there are also quite a few differences between a leaflet and flyer (or brochure). Here’s what they have in common:

  • All can be printed on sheets of paper
  • They are all promotional marketing materials
  • They are all lower cost marketing initiatives

In this article, our printing experts at PRI Graphics in Phoenix Arizona will describe the brochure, flyer, and leaflet difference, and help clarify when each should be used.

Flyer Printing

You would normally print flyers for any small scale and affordable marketing campaign that also needs wide distribution. One sheet flyer printing is the best option if you are trying to get your message out to many people as quickly and as cheaply as possible.

The paper used for flyer printing is of general or lower quality (usually a standard 8 ½” by 11” page). Typically, flyers are “throw away” handbills. They typically only get read in passing, and then they are disposed of or recycled. Flyers and handbills generally have very little design layout (or graphics) on the page, making them quick and easy to produce.

Examples of a Flyer Printing include:

  • Event announcements
  • Fact sheets
  • Informational handouts

Leaflet Printing

Unlike flyers, printing leaflets generally involve more thought towards elegant design. Most of the time, leaflets cost a little more to print. They are usually printed in full color and on good quality printing paper, with the intention that the leaflets will be kept and read in more detail.

Leaflets are used for targeted marketing campaigns that have a bigger budget and a desire to leave a lasting impression on the reader or customer. The wording, graphics, and layout design of a leaflet are very carefully thought out, as the message needs to be just right. For the most part, the content in a leaflet is much heavier and more specifically focused than a flyer.

Leaflet printing usually costs more than flyer printing for a number of reasons. Leaflet printing not only uses better quality paper and colored ink but also has more design elements on the page.

Examples of a Leaflet Printing include:

  • Product information sheets
  • Newspaper inserts
  • Impulse reading materials on a particular subject

Pamphlet and Brochure Printing

Although a brochure and pamphlet are similar types of marketing materials, there’s also a difference between a brochure, flyer, and leaflet. For one, brochures are well designed and generally cost more to print.

Pamphlets are usually multi-sheets unbound or can take the form of unbound books. They are often used as reference materials, or as product or service catalogs and manuals.

Brochures are more complex and typically printed on standard sized paper with multiple folds. They can either be bi-fold or tri-fold brochures and each panel may have it’s own margins and layout, including paragraph headings, photos, etc. Brochure printing is intended for use as reference materials. They provide more detailed information and tend to have a longer shelf life than a leaflet or flyer.

Mesh Banners vs Vinyl Banners

Most people are familiar with vinyl banners but when it comes to mesh vs vinyl banners, they may not know which is better for their needs.

Along with retractable banner printing, PRI Graphics in Phoenix can also print mesh banners and vinyl banners. In this post, we’ll take a look at mesh vs vinyl banners to help you decide which is best for your purposes.

What Are Mesh Banners?

Unlike vinyl banners (which require wind slits cut into the vinyl if it is to be used outdoors), the weave or interlaced fabric of a mesh banner is breathable; it will actually allow air to pass through the mesh weave. This makes mesh banner printing ideal for installations in any outdoor location, even if it is quite windy. And, since mesh won’t tear like vinyl does, they generally last much longer.

Even though the criss-crossed weave can make the mesh slightly transparent, fully color mesh banner printing with graphics, images and text is still possible. As well, mesh banners can also be finished with hemming and grommets similar to vinyl banners. With today’s capabilities for large format printing, you can now find mesh banners commonly used as fence wraps for sporting events and on construction site fencing.

Below is an overview listing a few other advantages of mesh vs vinyl banners.

Mesh vs Vinyl Banners

Whether you should custom print your advertising on mesh or vinyl will really depend upon several things. These may include where and how your banner will be located or installed, how long it will be displayed, and whether or not you need the image to show on both sides of the banner.

Mesh banner wind load is higher than that of vinyl banners, which makes mesh banners ideal for outdoor installations such as:

  • Construction mesh banners
  • Builders mesh banners
  • Fencing mesh banners
  • Hanging mesh banners
  • Over the street mesh banners
  • Scaffolding mesh banners

Mesh banners are typically composed of 70% vinyl and 30% mesh. This makes them lightweight, durable, and they generally outlast vinyl if kept clean and properly stored. A longer life span also means that mesh banners can also be repurposed more often than vinyl.

While printing on vinyl can be less expensive than printing mesh banners, vinyl is more susceptible to being torn or damaged in high winds or severe weather locations.

Vinyl Banner Advantages

Unlike mesh banner printing, printing on vinyl generally means thicker material and your choice of a gloss or matte finish. Vinyl banners can also be printed on both sides and they generally cost less to print. To find out more, read our article on Vinyl Banner Printing Tips.

How to Choose Paper for Printing Your Next Project

Clients often ask us how to choose paper for printing. It’s best to always keep the end use and the project purpose in mind when choosing paper type for printing.

In this post, our Phoenix printers at PRI Graphics offer the following tips on how to choose paper for printing and what different types of paper are available.

Choose Paper Type Based on Project Requirements

Are you thinking of postcard printing, or creating mailers, leaflets or flyers? How about business card printing in color or black and white? Or, do you need high quality banner printing? Choosing the right paper for printing is essential to ensure your next printing project is printed correctly for its intended use.

It’s important to ask the right questions before you choose the paper type for printing. Will the paper be creased, folded, saddle stitched, or die cut after it is printed? Will your finished project be utilized outdoors or indoors? The intended purpose of your printing project will determine if it is best suited for coated printing paper, uncoated printing paper, natural printing paper, or synthetic printing paper?

Coated vs Uncoated Paper Printing

Coated Printing Paper – Coated paper can be an excellent choice when print clarity is important or if your project contains high quality photos as found in product sheets, menus, and brochure printing. Glossy coated printing paper offer finishes that have a reflective surface, presenting a rich, satin-like feel. Matte coated paper printing will give you a finish that absorbs light, which makes them easier to read in low light situations such as restaurants.

Uncoated Printing Paper – Uncoated paper offers a look and feel that seems more natural. Some uncoated printing papers have distinct tactile features that emulate a rich, professional statement. Uncoated papers are also suitable for business cards, stationery, wedding invitations, or any purpose where presentation is of utmost importance.

Natural Printing Paper

Most of the available natural printing paper, including recycled paper, contain anywhere from 10% to 100% Post Consumer Waste (PCW) paper. You can also find some very unique natural printing papers made from 95% sugar cane waste material that are acid-free, and archival safe (meaning they won’t yellow or crumble over time). Natural papers can also be quite decorative and are also commonly used for embossed printing.

Synthetic Printing Paper

For durability and longevity try using synthetic printing paper. Synthetic paper (plastic) is most suitable for printing outdoor signage, menus or even notebooks used in the field where moisture or humidity is a concern. Synthetic means it’s also water resistant printing paper that won’t tear easily and can be utilized for decal printing and label printing.

If you still have any questions about how to choose the best paper type for printing, please send us an email. You can also call PRI Graphics in Phoenix at 1-602-393-3131 or through our toll free line at 1-877-409-8889We will be happy to assist you.

Creating & Preparing Print Ready Files

Preparing print ready files for digital printing simply means getting your files ready for print.

The digital files must contain all the necessary specifications for optimal printing without the need for any additional adjustments or changes. If a print shop has to fix files before printing there may be an additional cost. Preparing print ready files alleviates frustration, saves time, and is much more cost effective.

Here are five tips to help you when creating and preparing print ready files:

1. First, Ask Your Printer What They Need for Print Ready Files

Speak with your printer beforehand and ask them what they need. What file type, image resolution, and color palette are required in preparing print ready files. Every shop has different specifications depending on their equipment. There’s no point in preparing print ready files until you have the correct specs from the printer you will be working with.

2. What Color Palette Choice Should You Use

A computer monitor uses the RGB color palette. Printing equipment uses the CMYK color palette. The colors on printed projects will differ from your RGB monitor colors. To ensure the colors you want are rendered properly, specify Pantone (CMYK) colors instead of your RGB monitor colors. Pantone colors are your best bet for color integrity.

3. Raster vs. Vector Images for Print Ready Files

Raster images are based on pixels (Photoshop files). Vector images are based on mathematics (Illustrator files). Vector image scaling is intuitive so you can scale your image to any size without distortion. Raster images cannot be scaled so be sure to use the appropriate image type for your project. Ask your printer what image type is needed before preparing print ready files.

4. Photo Sizing & Resolution

Unfortunately, you can’t make a bad photo better (or a small photo bigger). For example, a 640 x 480 pixel photograph cannot be scaled, so it’s not possible to stretch a small pixel photo to fit a large banner. When preparing print ready files, make sure that your photos are scanned to the finished size (the size they will be when printed). The photos should also be optimized to at least 300 dpi or higher. Ask us if you need help understanding photo sizing and resolution to create print ready files.

In Phoenix, call PRI Graphics toll free, at 1-877-409-8889 with any questions you may have or send us an email.

5. Choosing Print Sheet Sizes

With today’s digital printing techniques, we can now print on many different types of paper, including different paper sizes and weights. Printed sheet sizes are determined by the finished size of the document. But there are ways to save on printing costs. For instance, two 8 1/2” x 11” printed documents (no bleed) can be printed together on one 11” x 17” sheet.

If you still have questions about how to create print ready files, you can talk to our printing experts at PRI Graphics.
