Brochure

When extensive contents have to be communicated and the space in a leaflet is not enough, one may decide to produce a brochure, which is a booklet with a small number of pages (generally no more than 32). Brochures are printed using the signature system, which must be kept in mind during the design stage when choosing the format. If the brochure must be mailed it is important to consider the envelope formats and the weight, to avoid higher mailing costs.

Blind embossing on Materica Terra Rossa paper 180 gsm
Printing and specialty printing

Together with offset printing and hot foil stamping, printing techniques used in corporate communications include, blind embossing, that makes it possible to reproduce graphic elements on the surface of the paper without using inks: for example, blind embossing may be used if one wants a logo to appear discretely on the page. Termographic printing, whereby inked parts are in relief, is used for classic institutional printed matter (letterhead paper and business cards), but may also be used to highlight a particular element (such as a trademark) in relation to other graphic elements.

Binding

On the whole, catalogues and annual reports are held together with staples or a spiral binding, however, it is not uncommon to come across products bound with particular or special materials. The simplest alternative is glue binding, a solution which is not particularly long-lasting unless it is executed to perfection. Thread stitching is a more resistant binding option, suitable for publications with a greater value. Another excellent binding option is provided by a Singer sewn cloth cover without forgetting the possibility of not using any binding at all but relying simply on folding.

Saddle stitch binding
Insert

In order to illustrate articles in the best possible way, catalogues often adopt the use of inserts, that make it possible to include pages of different formats: sheets of a higher size fold into the volume to give dedicated space to some images that would not be fully appreciated if reproduced in the standard page size. Inserts are also used to add individual pages of different material and it is better that they are placed between one signature and the other, if possible overlapping it, or fixed with glue (tipping).
