I'm producing some brochures, but I haven't done this sort of print run before, so I'm after some advice.
I'm planning on 12 pages (5 openings), around 200gsm, pages approx 200x200mm, about 50/50 images and text, stapled, print runs of about 150-200x at a time. I'm not sure yet if I'll do a heavier cover page or if it'll be all the same.
Think of a nice credit card rewards program catalog - that's what I've been thinking of regarding construction / feel.
Naturally I'm looking for a good cost / quality balance - I want it to look professional, and cost peanuts!
1) This is a job for 'digital ', right? That means colour laserjet, because it's too big of a run for injet and too small of a run for offset, right? So I'm thinking officeworks, snap, etc...
2) Any suggestions on paper?
3) Is 200x200mm an ok size, cost-wise? I'm wondering if there are 'sweet-spot' sizes that mean minimum paper wastage, and if that has a significant impact on cost.
