This part is key! Make sure your photos and logos are high resolution, preferably 300 DPI (Dots Per Inch). No low resolution web version PNG or GIF files. They are low resolution files that look great on web, but don’t work in print.
And make sure you submit your art for brochure printing with bleed. Bleed simply means submitting your art 1/4″ larger in width and 1/4″ larger in height than you really need with no copy or graphics near the edges. That way when we make our cut you won’t have a photo or copy cut off. For Example if your card is 4″ x 6″ submit artwork as 4.25″ x 6.25″. Submit as a PDF is best, JPG is OK, but it will go faster if PDF.
If this is confusing call us. Cloud 8 can design your brochure or tri-fold for you.

Brochure Printing Paper & Card Stock:
Our house paper is Premium 100# Text which looks great and crisp. Most people choose 100# text for brochure printing. You usually don’t need thick card stock. If you want card stock 14 point is a very nice premium card stock. 16 Point is nearly the same price and just a little thicker. When choosing Giant 8.5″ x 11″ cards consider 100 # Cover (not to be confused with 100# text) for saving a few bucks. It is a little thinner than 14 point, but not much.
Brochures GO Green No Extra Charge :
Prefer Going Green? Cloud 8 Printing will print your project on Green paper at no additional charge (10% post consumer waste and 30% recycled).
UV coating is glossier than AQ. And the real difference is the UV is the very glossy, AQ is a more subdued gloss. Choose AQ Matte for your brochure printing if you want to write on it. UV coating is glossier than AQ, but can be more expensive. We print many, many more AQ brochures, tri-folds and flyers so turnaround is faster on AQ and it cost less. Spot coating is rarely used, only when you want just a certain “spot” gloss coated.
Choose one side color, both sides color or Color on Front, black only on back. Price is almost identical so most people stick with color for brochure printing.
Remember the clock doesn’t start until you approve your proof. If you choose no proof it will get into the mix sooner, but we highly recommend a proof as a double check. In hurry? Go with Next day it cost more, but you said you are in hurry. What day is today? Well today is actually tomorrow if you submit after our morning deadline, meaning if you submit on Wednesday in the afternoon it is as if you submitted on Thursday.
Folding is available with a wide choice of options: half fold, tri-fold, Z-fold, double parallel fold, 4 panel accordion, map fold, double gate fold, single gate fold, 4 panel fold, 4 panel roll fold. We can even do a backwards double parallel (and stick the landing).
