Looking for inspiration or clarity on which paper type to use for your Brochures? Check out some of the great work other brands have beeen doing.
Cardstock brochures are great for sales and marketing collateral, like Feature Sheets, Sell Sheets and more.
The two most common paper for a trifold brochure is either 100# Gloss Text for brochures with a lot of photos, if you are writing on the brochure we recommend 70# Uncoated Text.
For FLHA, FLRA or Coaching Game Cards we recommend 13PT Uncoated Cover when you need something rigid that you can write on.
Three panel trifold brochures, 11×25.5″, or multipanel brochures are available to a maximum flat size of 13×25″. We stock the oversize paper in 11PT Gloss Cover, 100# Gloss Text and 13PT Uncoated Cover.
Frequently Asked Questions
The most popular questions small businesses ask us about printing.
Little Rock Printing lets you combine quantities within the same order for a better price, as long as:
- Your designs are all the same size
- Your designs use the same type of paper or stock
- You order all your designs at the same time (for example, an order of 1000 units for 4 designs with 250 copies for each).
To combine multiple orders, simply send the files and quantity breakdown to email@example.com.
The best file to print from is a high-resolution PDF, exported with ⅛” bleed, outlined fonts, and built to scale in the CMYK color space. We do allow you to submit other file types like JPEGs, but the quality may not be as good.
When trying to print Pantone colours, use Spot PMS colours as opposed to CMYK values. If specific colours are vital for your design, we strongly recommend ordering a proof before placing your entire order.
Since we have no minimum order size, getting proofs is easy—just place a regular order for a single product and review it before ordering the rest. It’s always best to place a small order to start—but for orders over $100.00, we also offer a free hard copy proof at checkout.
- Upload your file when you place your order
- Send it separately to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Use our file uploader (click here)
- Send us your own file transfer link (via WeTransfer, Dropbox, etc.)
Files are not required with your order if you have chosen to send it separately—but please make sure your design is print ready and keep track of your order number!
That’s right; Little Rock Printing has no order minimums—which means you can place an order as small as a single copy for any of our products. If you don’t see the quantity you want listed on the product page, select “Custom Quantity” in the bottom left corner and fill in the amount you want to see the price break.
