Custom Booklet Outline and Design Services

From Concept to Creation: Custom Booklet Outline and Design Service

Whether you're promoting products, services, or your unique brand story, a well-designed custom booklet can be a valuable part of your marketing playbook. Many businesses, though, face hurdles in the design process.

Many businesses are short-staffed and just trying to keep up with day-to-day tasks, leaving no time for a design and marketing project. A lack of design expertise among staff or contractors can be another obstacle businesses face. So where should you start to turn the idea of a custom booklet or brochure into a reality?

In this article we will take you through the process of creating a custom booklet from design all the way to printing.

Solving the design dilemma

Sometimes getting started is the hardest part—some common roadblocks faced by many small businesses include:

  • Limited design expertise. Many of us can tell the difference between good and bad design, but implementation is another story. Not all small businesses have a designer on staff, or even someone who is gifted or experienced in design.
  • Time constraints. To run a small business means you and your staff wear many hats to cover all the bases, which leaves little time for additional design projects.
  • Limited resources. Hiring an in-house designer is not always feasible for your budget, which can lead to shelving projects for another day.
  • Quality concerns. DIY design may not be the best representation of the quality and professionalism of your business.

While many small businesses lack the staff, time, and resources to create materials like custom booklets, doing so is not impossible. This is where partnering with a professional design and print company can make your idea a reality.

The power of professional design services

Partnering with a professional design service and printer can help provide:

  • Expertise. Professional design services understand the principles of design, the importance of typography, and the need for a thoughtful layout. Design professionals will ensure that your booklet or brochure is consistent with your brand.
  • Efficiency. Hiring a professional designer can save you time and resources, allowing you to focus on what only you can do for your business.
  • Quality. Professional designers and printers will create a high-quality booklet. They can guide you through formats, paper types, color modes, and all details required to best represent your business and its products or services.
  • Customization. Professional designers will be able to customize your booklet, helping you stand out from the competition.

Hiring a professional printer

If you’ve never worked with a professional design and print service before, here is what you can expect from the process:

  • Design consultation for project goals and vision. Before getting started with your project, a professional design service will want to discuss your project, brand, and goals. This will give them a feel for how to best represent your business.
  • Custom design services. The design process will be tailored to match your needs.
  • Design revisions. You will get a chance to review your booklet and make changes before your final print order is made.
  • Professional printing with guidance on quantity, paper stock, type of printing, timeline, and more. Professional designers and printers will have the knowledge needed to guide you in selecting all your materials, booklet binding, type of printing, and order quantity.
