Catalogs (Books & Booklets)
Catalogs showcase your full range of products and services in one book. Catalogs tend to have a larger page count and utilize crisp yet durable perfect binding that snugly glues the inside pages to the wrap around cover. The spine (the outside edge where the pages are gathered and bound) is usually wide enough to be printed upon. Printing the title and other features on the spine allows the book to be identified while it standard on a shelf or lies horizontally in a stack.

Add a space of this width between the front and back covers in your cover file.
Pages vs. Sheets
A single sheet of paper has 2 sides, a front and a back side. A sheet folded in half gives you 4 numbered pages.
To determine the number of pages, count every sheet side (each sheet has 2 sides) and all blank pages.
Your page count must be divisible by 2 for coil books and by 4 for saddle stitch and perfect bound products. If you file is not divisible by the appropriate number, blank pages will be added. We encourage you to add the blank(s) to your file to ensure placement is to your liking.
