The pagination of your newspapers is limited to 48 pages.

If you need to print more than 48 pages, you can prepare multiple booklets and place an order for each of them.

As the booklets are assembled without glue or staples, you can combine two booklets into a single newspaper with a page count exceeding 48 pages.

Example with a 72 pages newspaper:

You can plan to print two booklets of 36 pages (this also works with 32 and 40 or 28 and 44, etc.)

Two options are available:

1. Keep your two booklets separate, similar to the Sport, TV, or Economy supplements you can find in newsstand newspapers. In this case, prepare two PDFs as if they were two independent newspapers.

2. Combine your two booklets into one: you need to prepare an inside section and an enclosing section.

- The enclosing section contains the beginning and the end of your newspaper: pages 1 to 18 and 55 to 72.

- The inside section contains the middle of your newspaper: pages 19 to 54.

When you reassemble both booklets, insert the inside section in the centerfold of the outer booklet, completing the pages in the correct order.

If your orders are going to the same delivery address, the discount applied is $72 because we'll group both printing and shipping.

You can add a background color to your newspaper.

Keep in mind that margins needs to stay empty, or with a very light tint.

We usually recommend to fade the edge of your background to let margins white.

It's possible to print multiple double-page spreads in the same newspaper.

Here's an example:


For example, you can print a 12-page newspaper and pull apart into 6 spreads on 3 different sheets of paper.

Here is the detail of a 12-page newspaper:
Sheet #1 - Front side: Pages 12 and 1 (page 12 to the left, page 1 to the right)
Sheet #1 - Back side: Pages 2 and 11
Sheet #2 - Front side: Pages 10 and 3
Sheet #2 - Back side: Pages 4 and 9
Sheet #3 - Front side: Pages 8 and 5
Sheet #3 - Back side: Pages 6 and 7

To make sure the posters are clean, ensure that the inner edges of each page have no central margin or gutter and that they come together, while maintaining a margin on the outer edges of the spread.

Here's a 12 pages newspaper that contains 3 one-sided posters:
