What sizes are available?


Better Printing offers printed programmes in A5 (148mm by 210mm) and A4 (210mm by 297mm) sizes. Please note that these measurements refer to the size of the programme when closed.

Bespoke programme sizes are also available - so If you have a different size in mind, call us on 023 8087 8037 to discuss your requirements.

How are programmes bound?


Our standard programmes are bound together via saddle-stitching. This method assembles brochure pages by first nesting several folded double-leaf spreads on top of each other (starting with the middlemost pages and finishing with the outer cover leaf).

The brochure pages are then stitched together by threading lengths of metal wire (similar to staples) through all pages along the central crease line.

Better Printing can also provide programmes with other binding methods, including perfect binding - call us to discuss your requirements!

How many pages can my programmes have?


You can view our page count options in the table below. Each paper sheet (or ‘leaf’) of your brochure will have two printed pages (pp); one on each side of the paper. Book covers consist of four pages, and are included in addition to the page counts listed in the table below.

If you need a higher page count than the options listed here, simply call us on 023 8087 8037 to discuss your requirements.

Will my programmes be printed via litho printing or digital printing methods?


The right print method will depend on a number of factors; including the product type, quantity and turnaround time you require.

Better Printing can produce your order on either litho or digital, with both available in-house. Our sales team can recommend the most cost-effective solution for your needs and will confirm your preferred method before going to print.

What materials are these products printed on?


Please see the Specification tab for more information on this product’s standard material specification. Alternative stocks and grades can be supplied for most products to help you customise your order - simply get in touch to discuss your print requirements.

How do I select portrait or landscape?


All brochures and booklets are produced in portrait orientation (with the spine located on the longer edge of the booklet) by default. Alternatively, you can specify landscape orientation for your brochures if needed at the checkout stage.

What imposition or page order format should I use for my artwork?


We recommend supplying artwork as single pages in the same order as you want them to appear in the finished programme. Please avoid supplying your artwork in printer’s pairs or double page spreads, as this may extend production times of your print order.
