Rules & Pads

Make sure you review our Main Formatting Page regarding bleed and basic template use! And then see the special notes for your item below as well as the templates.

Rules

The number of pages is the number of pages that make up the booklet. If you have a number of pages that is less than a multiple of 4, round up to 4. If the number of pages is more than 4, the booklet will be saddle-stitched (stapled on the spine). The rules are printed double sided on glossy paper. Pages should be sent to us in sequential order.

  • Each page should contain .25″ of added bleed.
  • We can trim to color, or to the dimensions listed. If we trim to color and you do not have added bleed, your pages may end up with a slight white edge.

Large Booklet

  • This option is for if your booklet is between the sizes of 5″ x 8″ and 9″ x 12″. The booklet will be 9.5″ by 13″ (folded) size from an 13″ by 19″ (unfolded) sheet and trimmed down to 9″ by 12″ or smaller.
  • PDF booklet should contain pages that are the size you want the booklet to be plus .25″ added bleed.
    The booklet is stapled on the long side.
    If the booklet is 4 pages (one sheet), then it will not be stapled.

Small Booklet

  • This option is for if your booklet is 5″ x 8″ or smaller. The booklet will be 8.5″ by 5.5″ size (folded) from an 8.5″ by 11″ sheet (unfolded) and trimmed down to 5″ x 8″ or smaller.
  • PDF booklet should contain pages that are the size you want the booklet to be plus .25″ added bleed.
    The booklet is stapled on the long side.
    If the booklet is 4 pages (one sheet), then it will not be stapled.

Formatting & Upload

  • Upload a single pdf file of the rules, containing all pages in order.
  • Merge all pages into one PDF/X-1a file (to ensure there are no issues with layers)
  • Make sure nothing important (text/images) is within 1/4″ of the edge of each sheet.
  • If the files aren’t the right size, we may resize them to fit the margins, so nothing gets cut off.

Example: You have a 3.5″ by 5″ booklet with 12 pages. Select the “small″ 12 page booklet and then enter in the dimensions 3.5″ x 5”.

Standard size score pads:

  • 5.5″ x 8.5″
  • 8.5″ x 11″

All standard size pads will result in a white border for printer margin. If your pad requires full bleed (artwork all the way to the edge of the pages), then make sure to order a custom size. Please make sure custom pad artwork contains at least 2mm bleed on each side of your image.
