Wiro bound booklets can be used for presentations, notebooks, recipe books, manuals and other reference documents. Therefore your design should consider the context in which the booklet will be used and the main benefit you want to achieve with this book. These will be handled by your customers, prospects, suppliers and/or colleagues, so ensure these are printed in high quality and include all the necessary information.
For the best results, use professional design software such as Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator. Also, ensure that your final artwork file meets all the requirements on the checklist for creating print-ready artwork. If you are not comfortable with the respective design software, we recommend using the services of a design professional. This is crucial, as a poor design can harm your the overall presentation of your brand.

Do you offer hardcovers, leather-bound covers, and other custom covers?
We don’t offer leather bound covers. However, you can configure your cover pages to be a heavier paper than your inside pages.
What is “bleed”?
Bleed is the area around your artwork that is trimmed off. This allows your design to look as if it was printed to the edge, even when the cutting alignment was slightly off. Your bleed should always extend to at least 3mm.
The history of booklets is as old as writing on paper. This started with tablets, scrolls, and sheets of papyrus. What immediately predates the bound multi-page books we know today are handbound, and sometimes handwritten, codices which could only be afforded by the ultra-wealthy.
Thanks to the invention of the printing press, introduced to us by Johannes Gutenberg, many have access today to a plethora of books at reasonable costs. These advancements in mass production techniques also enabled businesses to print booklets showcasing their goods and services.
