  • catalog help please

    i need to price out some catalogs & need to know how printers define them. i will call the printer before i do this job but... just as a general rule....

    if the printed size is 11x17 then folded to 8.5x11 is this a 11x17 or 8.5x11 catalog?
    on the same lines if there are 6 - 11x17's then folded to 8.5x11 is this a 6 or 12 page catalog.

    i know this is probably a real newb question & i searched the forum with no luck

    vtwin_gary,

    Your printer should spell this out for you in easy to understand terms. If not, find another printer

    If you are looking to just know what your talking about when you talk to your printer.....honestly, it's better to go in not knowing too much otherwise the printer may think you know everything and gloss over the important steps.

    To answer your questions (without more specific details on your project).....An 8.5x11 catalog is 11x17 folded in half (Each 11x17 is 4 pages).

    Now the variables begin...Self cover, Plus cover, etc...............Talk to your printer!!!
