Winter might be taking a toll on most of us right now, but let’s keep our eye on the prize, SUMMER is only months away! And what is one thing that brings great joy to us during summertime? FESTIVALS! Today we highlight our client – Major Mortgage Country Jam Festival and its program booklet printing project.
This is exactly what it reads, a country jam festival! Major Mortgage Country Jam Festival is happening prime summertime from June 19-22, 2014. This festival is the largest Country music event in Colorado, taking place at the beautiful, three hundred acre, Country Jam Ranch. For 23 years, this four-day music festival has featured performances by Country music’s biggest stars and offers a top-quality experiences for people of all ages!
The festival program booklet printing project Publishing Xpress printed for this event has all kinds of information and a map of the grounds. But since you don’t have one in hand right now, for more information, check out their website at www.countryjam.com/colorado.
Why does Publishing Xpress loved this color program booklet printing project? Because it was such a light, to-the-point, well designed project. Headwaters Country Jam has printed with us several times and has always stuck to uniform paper and design. This specific program booklet printing project was full color, 8.5×11 -—12 pages saddle-stitched, 60# uncoated text, and 80# gloss cover.
Many people tend to think that glossy paper and/or heavy paper will make their project look/feel high quality. This is not always necessarily true. Publishing and printing a color booklet is not merely about paper, it is about the whole package — color, design, paper, binding — and this program booklet printing project is a perfect example.
This client went with our lightest cover stock as well as lightest text stock, but the final product was just as appealing as the glossiest projects. The saddle-stitch binding helps open the pamphlet wide and flat, which makes for easy reading of text and viewing of the colorful high resolution images/maps.
Also, a program booklet should be light enough to carry around and roll up to put in your back pocket if need be, especially in a festival setting.
Saddle-stitch is the way to go for thin program booklet printing projects such as this. Please keep in mind that saddle-stitch books need to have a page count that is divisible by 4 [8,12, 16, etc.]. The highest page count Publishing Xpress can print with saddle-stitch binding is 80 pages [including cover]. Also, saddle-stitch will be your most affordable binding option, so with such thin books/pamphlets, you might as well save a couple bucks too.
