Summary:

With two sophisticated, automated 20 station booklet-making systems Flexpress can make light work of booklets. As with all of our products, our booklets are printed individually meaning no batching, ganging or 'average' ink settings. Jobs are colour matched to FOGRA proofs and printed to ISO 12647-2 international colour standards. All this at prices you'd expect to pay to printing companies more accustomed to printing multiple jobs together.

Prepress:

Whether or not you request a proof, all supplied artwork files undertake our rigorous 10 point file check to ensure your printed job turns out exactly as you intend. Using sophisticated software, files are automatically imposed ready for printing in the most effective way to minimise waste. Every job is sent to print along with a FOGRA colour-matched proof to ensure high levels of colour accuracy.

Sizes:

Our booklets are available in five popular finished sizes: A6, 1/3 A4, A5, 210 x 210mm and A4.

Please note: if specifying landscape booklets in either A6 or DL sizes only, the maximum thickness of booklet we can produce is 3mm. Additionally, due to being unable to get the stitching heads in such close proximity, A6 landscape booklets only will be stitched with one centre staple only. If in doubt please contact us prior to placing your order.

Material:

With an incredible range of gloss, silk and uncoated papers and boards at almost every weight to choose from, you can pick your preferred cover material and mix with your preferred inner pages to give you the exact choice to suit your clients needs.

High Definition Printing:

Every job at Flexpress is printed using the finest technology available. You wont receive any products printed on beefed-up photocopiers from us - another reason we back everything with our total satisfaction guarantee. Our booklets are printed either lithographically using LED UV inks or using HP Indigo offset which is arguably the finest digital technology available.

Precision Finishing:

Our automated I-Saddle and Stitchliner booklet making systems turn flat sheets into professionally finished booklets. Both systems use an ingenious scoring device to score the pages before folding and saddle-stitching to ensure a sharp spine that stays flatter. Each booklet is then automatically machine trimmed on all three edges before being packed in extra-strong, double-walled, unbranded cartons that will stand up to the rigours of national carriage.

Please note: when folded, fibre-cracking along the crease of paper is a natural characteristic and becomes more apparent when heavy ink coverage is present. The thicker the cover, the more this becomes an issue. Flexpress pre-crease all covers over 200gsm to minimise the effect of this problem but it is only possible to eliminate the issue completely by laminating the outer cover. Unless laminating is specified, please note Flexpress are otherwise unable to take responsibility for what is ultimately a naturally occurring phenomenon.
