Benefits of Hiring a Professional Booklet Printer

You work hard to put your best face forward as a brand. When you create printed materials for your company, you want them to reflect that commitment with quality colors, materials, and construction.

Unfortunately, not all booklet printing companies in Washington, DC or Alexandria, VA can print high quality products for their clients. Some “printers” do not have the same degree of expectation that the Heritage Printing, Signs & Displays culture demands of itself for their clients.

In other cases, bargain online booklet printers use cheap materials and methods, and employee undertrained staff to maintain their low prices; the result is inconsistent quality. Your booklets will look like they are constructed with little-to-no care, and that does not represent your brand! So, ditch the bargain printers, and take care of your branding materials with a quality, customer centric booklet printing company.

At Heritage Printing, Signs & Displays, we have been a full-service, customer focused booklet printing company since 1977. We create printed materials that you can distribute proudly. That is the value proposition we offer as a professional, award winning booklet printing service.

Important Things to Consider when deciding to create your next booklet or publication

We work collaboratively with our customers to give them the results they seek to achieve. To fulfill your intended purpose, we welcome as much information as you can give us so we can create the best booklet possible.

Size and dimensions

We approach 8-page projects differently than 300-page projects, and 4x6 booklets differently than 8x10 booklets. The more you tell us about the size you want, the more we can target your project to meet your specific needs. We have years of experience printing and binding thousands of booklets. Let us leverage that booklet printing experience for your benefit!


We print on your choice of paper thickness and paper types. Depending on your ultimate purpose we can print on gloss, dull or uncoated opaque paper. We can help you to determine if you should do a self cover booklet (cover and text paper weight is the same) or a plus cover booklet (this means the cover is thicker than the text).


After we print on the paper we are also able to apply aqueous coating for protection or a visual effect.

Binding Methods

Are discussed in the next section but include saddle-stitching, loop stitching, perfect binding, plastic coil, wire coil binding and case binding.

You Should Judge a Book By Its Cover

When we were young, our parents and teachers told us not to judge a book by its cover; however, that's not how it always works in real life; especially not when it comes to professionally printed booklets. Imagine your client gets two catalogs printed. One is from a bargain printer - and it shows. The cover material is cheap, the colors are poorly defined, and the pages don't quite line up.

The other is from a professional booklet printing company. It looks well put together and the materials are clearly high quality. If you were the client, which company would you choose to do business with?

Our Cover Options provide more many great options to help your booklet stand out

Our covers can be:

  • Laminated with dozens of different textures, degrees of gloss, dull and finishes and thicknesses.
  • Spot foil stamped in a wide variety of colors and sizes
  • Die cutting and blind embossing

Customer Review via Google My Business Listing

I want to thank James Zambrano, who saved the day for my clients event last week in DC. More like he saved me and made my team and I look amazing. I work in Los Angeles and we are usually on the other end of the phone receiving calls of disastrous situations that need miracle workers and boy was I lucky to find James. There was no hesitation in his voice and we have never worked together before, but he said yes right away and took on my rushed project in no time. I couldn't have done what I came to do without his partnership. Its great to know there are people just like us on the other side of the country who love what they do, care about the people and the quality of work that is sent out. So thank you for "speaking my language" and for "bailing us out". Hope to work together again soon. =) Cheers !
