Follow these 6 simple steps to design and prepare your brochure for print:

  1. Choose the size and page orientation

    To design and prepare your brochure for print with Cloudprinter.com, you'll first of all have to choose one of the sizes available at Cloudprinter.com https://www.cloudprinter.com/brochure-print-online-worldwide
    After that, don't forget to decide which fits better for your brochure — landscape or portrait page orientation.
  2. Select 1 or 2 sided cover print. 

    While you're designing and preparing your brochure for print you'll also need to opt for a single-sided or double-sided print of the brochure cover.
    Inner sides of the cover can either be printed or left blank — simply choose the preferred option.  
  3. Mind the number of pages 

    Keep in mind that your brochure can be 8 pages at a minimum and up to 100 pages long at a maximum. At the same time, the number of pages in your brochure should be divisible by 4.
  4. Set bleeds. 

    Another step on your way while you're designing and preparing your brochure for print is to set the bleeds.
    For this, add 3 mm (0.12 in) at each side of the brochure page. This way, you'll make sure all the important data is within the safe zone of bleed areas. 
  5. Settle brochure specifications

    The binding type — staple binding
    Cover paper — coated silk
    Lamination type — matt or gloss
  6. Prepare brochure file for printing 
  • Set 300 DPI resolution
  • Choose RGB print 
  • Save the file in PDF/X-4.

Done! You can now print your brochure globally as close to the delivery destination as possible.
