Full Color Catalogs

For years, catalogs have been a staple ingredient for marketing and sales campaigns. Before computers and the Internet allowed consumers to instantly peruse their favorite products and wares, the catalog was a mainstay of at-home shopping. Catalogs still play a large part in promoting sales. Discounted Printing can provide your company with a professionally printed full color catalog of high quality paper and cover stock that fully lists and displays all the products and services your company offers. A custom catalog, creatively designed and put in the hands of your customers, is a great sales tool.

Our traditional catalog printing is done on 100 lb. gloss text and comes with free AQ coating. If you prefer your catalog covers to have a more substantial weight and feel, just upgrade to a thicker cover, such as 10 pt. or 14 pt. cardstock. A high gloss UV coating can also be added to the cover to further protect your company's logo and color graphics. See our Digital Catalog Printing section if you need to print smaller quantities, such as 25 copies. We also offer one color printing, a number of custom paper stocks, optional coatings, and other possibilities. Our normal binding uses saddle stitching. Please call or e-mail us if you need a custom estimate. We can usually match or beat advertised prices.

We can print custom catalogs, booklets and magazines. We can assist you with your custom project, whether you are looking for custom paper stocks, larger quantities, perfect binding, coil binding, 1 color printing on the inside pages, custom coatings, mailing services or any other custom requirements.

Quantity

The quantity available is dependent on the order specifications you choose. To see available quantities, complete all order specifications in the pricing calculator and click on the "Quantity" dropdown menu.

Due to our printing process, we print in specific quantity increments. If you would like an amount not listed in the pricing calculator, you have two options.

  1. Request a custom estimate for the specific quantity you need
  2. Order a larger quantity and ask us to ship only what you need

Ordering one of our specified quantities is generally more affordable than a custom estimate. Let us know how many units you would like shipped and we will recycle the excess for you. Simply choose the amount of items you would like recycled under the "shipping" section after placing your order.

For example, if you would like 700 units, you can order 1000 units and let us know you only want 700 shipped. We will responsibly dispose of the extras.

We typically print more than the quantity ordered. Because printing is a manufacturing process, the total finished quantity may vary. We usually ship a few more than you order, but sometimes quantities can vary +/- 5%. Standard industry procedure is to consider this range shipment in full.

When to choose Offset

4-Color Offset printing is ideal for lower prices on large quantity orders or any time you would like coating on your products.

Almost always, people choose this option when ordering large quantities.
