Recycled brochure printing options

When it comes to promoting your business, it can be hard to balance the success printing promotional brochures brings with the impact on the environment. Our 100% recycled brochures are the perfect solution for eco friendly, vibrant coloured, superior quality booklets.

With our print experience and knowledge of recycled materials, you can create a high impact yet subtle, understated promotional brochure. So your business looks great – and you can do your bit for the environment at the same time.

All our full colour recycled booklets are available in sizes A5 and A4 and printed on high quality, FSC certified, 100% recycled stock using vegetable based inks. Our recycled brochures are all saddle stitched; strong staples are inserted in the spine to bind the brochure pages together.

Please note: To ensure your brochures are 100% biodegradable do not opt for any of our laminate finishing options as the lamination we use is non- biodegradable.

Create your own recycled brochure design using our free, downloadable brochure templates or take advantage of our in house design services.

Alternative recycled brochure uses

Perfect for the eco-friendly business, recycled brochures demonstrate your commitment to the environment, whatever they’re being used to promote! Use a recycled brochure for your:

  • Product catalogues
  • University prospectuses
  • Timetables
  • Event programmes… and more!

Why order eco friendly brochures?

Eco friendly brochure printing helps you, and us, lower your carbon footprint and helps us both to contribute positively towards sustainability. Your eco friendly brochure design will be just as eye-catching and compelling as a non-recycled brochure, but with the added bonus that it’s doing good for the planet! Furthermore, as customers become more and more eco conscious, promoting your brand on eco brochures and conveying a clear message that green printing is important to you is likely to encourage interaction and potentially sales.

Our custom printed recycled brochures come with fast, free delivery and quick order turnaround.

What materials are recycled brochures printed on?

Each brochure is printed on 100% recycled uncoated 140gsm paper stock; this includes both the inner pages and outer cover. Alternative recycled gsm grades can be provided upon request – simply call us to find out more!

What sizes are available?

Better Printing offers A5 (148mm by 210mm) and A4 (210mm by 297mm) sizes as standard. Please note that these measurements refer to the size of the brochure when closed.

Custom recycled brochure sizes are also available; so if you have a different size in mind, call us on 023 8087 8037 to discuss our bespoke options.

How are recycled brochures bound?

Our standard recycled brochures 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 recycled brochures with other binding methods, including perfect binding – call us to discuss your requirements!

How many pages can my recycled brochures 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. Brochure covers consist of four pages, and are included in addition to the page counts listed in the table below.

If you’re still unsure about page counts, or you need a different number of pages to the options here, call us on 023 8087 8037 to discuss your requirements.

Will my recycled brochures be printed via litho or digital 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 imposition/page 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 brochure. Please avoid supplying your artwork in printer’s pairs or double page spreads, as this may extend production times of your print order.

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.

How do I get in touch?
