A professional brochure is a great marketing tool for your company. Although they are typically used in prospecting to introduce your company to new potential customers, they're also effective to educate your current customers about other products and services that they may be interested in.
Brochures are often mailed, used as counter displays, as a sales presentation tool, and as a leave-behind as a reminder of the benefits your company has to offer.
Brochures are typically a single sheet of paper that has been folded: either a single fold (bi-folded brochures) or folded twice (a trifold brochure). For a complete list of common folding options see folding methods.
A well-designed brochure promotes your company and the products and services that you offer. Use them at trade shows, as presentation folder inserts, counter displays, and as a leave behind for your sales calls. A professional full color brochure helps promote branding and sets your company apart from the competition.

Most businesses use a high-gloss paper for their brochures. We have two standard text-weight coated paper options priced on the website: a standard 80# text and a premium 100# text weight. Both come standard with an aqueous coating to help protect the paper finish from fingerprints and scratches.
Coated enamel paper has two distinct advantages: (1) a high opacity so 2-sided printing doesn't easily show through, and (2) photos and copy are extra sharp since printing ink doesn't soak into a coated paper.
Our 100# premium dull text is for customers who prefer a coated paper that is not glossy. A paper with a matte (or dull, or satin) finish is also a coated sheet of paper, and is also very opaque, but with only a slight gloss. The printing is also sealed with a satin aqueous coating for resistance to smudges, fingerprints and scratches.
In some cases you may prefer a totally uncoated paper for your brochures, especially if they will be written on, such as a brochure that contains a form that will be filled out by hand. Although a pen can write on a gloss paper with an aqueous coating, pencils do not write well on a coated sheet of paper. A paper with a UV coating can not be written on at all.
Some clients prefer a thick cardstock paper for their brochures. Our 100# gloss cover is an extra-thick, stiff sheet of premium cardstock. The finish is also sealed with an aqueous coating that adds a glossy sheen and also helps to prevent scratches and minimize fingerprinting.
Most brochures are a single, folded piece of paper. For brochures made from multiple sheets of paper see booklets.
The most common sheet sizes are: 8½″ x 11″, 8½″ x 14″ and 11″ x 17″
(these are the flat, unfolded sizes)
While our four standard sizes are typical for most brochure printing projects, you are really only limited by your imagination. Summit Printing can provide your company a custom quote for any brochure size, paper, number of folds, special coatings, die cutting, or elegant features such as spot UV coatings, flat foil stamping, blind embossing or foil embossing.
