Minimum page size for CD booklets is 8 pages, which is 4 pages + cover + inlay. Page count increases in increments of four. For CD booklets we offer 14 different page options, starting with the minimum page which is the 8 pages + inlay, all the way to 32 pages + inlay.
Common paper types for CD booklets are: 100# gloss book self cover, this means the cover of your CD booklets will be the same paper as the inside, the 100# gloss book. Some prefer thin paper and do this option with the 80# gloss book self cover. Another common paper option for CD booklets is having the inside pages of your booklet printed on 100# gloss book, while the cover stock is 100# cover, this makes the cover thicker then the inside pages. Similar option can apply to the 80# gloss book for the inside pages and 80# gloss cover for the cover pages.
There is Gloss AQ coating on all CD booklets at no additional charge for all booklet quantities over 500. Booklets for quantities over 500 will be printed as offset printing on one of our Heidelberg Offset Printers. With offset printing we are able to offer AQ coating on your booklets at no additional charge to you. Quantities under 500 will be printed as digital printing and do not have the AQ coating option. With these short run quantities we cannot apply AQ coating; however we do always have the option of applying a UV coating for any quantity, large or small.
One option is for the cover to be in color while the inside pages are black and white. This is a great cost effective option. The cover will attract people and will be in color and the inside will be black and white to save you some money. Another printing option for CD booklets is color on all the pages, this includes the cover and inside. Saddle-stitched binding is among the most common methods of booklet binding. It is a gentle type of bind using stapling on the seam or spine of a book or a booklet where it folds. It is ideal for binding CD Booklets.
