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”.

Any size score pad! You can get these score sheets printed with whatever you want, with any number of sheets per pad. We can do any custom size, but if you use one of our standard sizes, price goes down:

  • 8.5″ x 5.5″
  • 4.25″ x 5.5″
  • 8.5″ x 11″

Note that we need about 1/8″ of a WHITE border around these for maximum cost savings.

We can do full bleed (color to the very edge), it just costs a little more.
