Expanded Flyer Options

Our Flyer product family is growing.  We have expanded the size options for Flyer to now include 8 x 8”, 5.5 x 8.5”, 8.5 x 5.5″ in addition to the existing 8.5 x 11” size.

The new sizes provide more creative flexibility for things like menus, promotional handouts, resumes and more.

Flyer publications consist of a single sheet with front and back color printing.  We’ve also added the option for UV coating on all Flyer products. Ultra Violet (UV) coating adds a protective layer to the printed page giving it an eye-catching sheen and also making it more resilient to normal wear and tear.

Flyer products range from $.32 a sheet for 5.5 x 8.5”, 8.5 x 5.5 size publications to $.40 a sheet for 8 x 8″ and 8.5 x 11″ publications.  Flyers have a minimum print order of 8 copies in multiples of 4 (i.e. 8, 12 or 16 copies), which will be bundled into one shipment.  UV coating adds an additional $.06 to each sheet.  So an 8 pack of 8 x 8 Flyers with UV coating is just $4.16.

Good Things Come In Small Packages: New Digest Size

Many publishers have asked for more product sizes. Well we are happy to announce a new product type called Digest. At 5.5” x 8.5” it’s approximately half the size of our current Standard product, and is available in both perfect bound and saddle stitch versions.

And with a smaller size comes a smaller price point. While there are lots of things that go into creating a high-quality finished publication, another benefit of Digest is that it allows us to reduce our overall production costs, specifically those related to paper and ink.  Those savings help bring our per page cost down to $.16 per page vs. $.20 per page for our larger format. Smaller publications also mean lighter packages, which can reduce shipping rates.

The Digest product offers an overall more compact and affordable publishing solution.

Publishing for Digest is similar to how you publish today you just need to modify your PDF settings for a smaller trim size (5.25 x 8.25).
