Programs and Playbills Info & FAQ
What is Program Printing?
Programs are materials designed for use with an event or occasion. These can be for weddings, funerals, concerts, stage performances, or sporting events just to name a few.
What forms do programs get printed as?
Programs are just specially designed versions of other print products. Typically booklets get used as Playbills and Amateur Sport Guides. Bifolds may be used for smaller events like casual concerts or recitals, as well as funeral programs. Rack cards are often used as guides for brief events such as stage guides.
What makes it a “booklet”?
- Booklets consist of a inside paper stock (often called “guts”) and a cover paper stock. External (cover) papers can be heavier, or the same weight as the inside pages. Booklets that use the same paper on the outside as the inside are referred to as “self covers”.
What Papers are Available for Program Printing and Event Booklets?
These are the papers available for event booklet online ordering, more papers are available via a custom quote.
- 70lb Opaque Text, commonly used for letterhead and stationary, it makes an effective magazine material.
- 80lb Gloss Text, extremely popular to use for magazines or booklets.
- 100lb Gloss Text, a heavy glossy paper, but too thin to be consider cardstock.
- 100lb Gloss Cardstock, a good, mid weight cardstock that works great as a magazine cover, but not so great as it’s inside pages.
What binding methods are available for Event Booklets?
- Saddle Stitch Printing are pieces of paper folded and stapled to create pages. Each sheet used yields 4 page faces, so all saddle stitch booklets are in increments of 4 pages.
- Spiral Bound Booklets use plastic spirals to keep their pages in place. The spirals come in different colors, and are a cost-effective way to keep large amounts of pages together.
