High-quality Printing Tips

The first thing that you should keep in mind is to experiment between different types of paper. This must be done especially if the catalog has many pages. 80gsm gloss art paper should be used as the interior pages. Another good choice for the same can be 80gsm matte art paper. The thickest catalog spine that we have completed till date was of 55mm. For thick catalogs, the cover paper should be 300gsm gloss art paper or matte art paper or 350gsm gloss art paper. If the insides of the front cover and the insides of the back cover are blank, the ideal choice of cover paper would be the 300gsm one side coated paper.

Next, a tool catalog should usually contains a lot of details about the specifications of the tool. Please do not use CMYK printing techniques or Photoshop to design the texts and tables. Please make use of InDesign to create the texts and tables and remember to choose between a black and grey color printings to design the same. This allows the text and table to be very clear and printed with absolute clarity.


High-quality Tool Catalog Binding Tips

You need to keep in mind that many tool catalogs are wire-O bound. Tool catalogs are supposed to be easy to open and it should be easy to lay it flat on a surface.. Wire-O-Binding is the best solution for such needs. While designing a tool catalog with this method it is important to keep enough margin on the binding side. The margin would depend on the catalog spine thickness. For thick catalogs, the holes are larger, and the margin space should be more than 15mm. For thinner catalogs, the holes are smaller, and the margin space is slightly more than 12mm. Before you start your tool catalog design, please contact us. We will help you calculate the margin space and even create a template for you. The template is free of cost. We are glad to assist our esteemed customers.

Secondly, in order to design a tool catalog it is important to use different tab colors. We provide great options like die-cutting tabs. However, we do not suggest that you do the die-cut tabs because it is more expensive and it takes a longer time for production. You can choose to do different color tabs instead. Before designing your tabs, please calculate how many tabs will be in the catalog height. Also include the tab position in the design.

Some tool catalogs are done with 3 or 2 drilled holes. Please keep enough margins on the binding edge for the holes to be drilled without ruining the cover artwork.
