- File Prep
Clubcard Vancouver prints booklets, zines and catalogues with fast, easy and affordable as our first mission. Print just one book or print hundreds in any size ranging from 4" x 4" to 9" x 12".
Need a custom size book not listed? No problem, just choose a size that will fit your artwork and be sure to tell us the custom size you want in the order comments.
Print self-cover books using the same uncoated, recycled, glossy or kraft paper from cover to cover or add a cardstock cover for a more substantial look and feel. We print your books in full colour or in full colour plus white ink on coloured cover stocks.
Your books are saddle stitched, meaning they are bound with staples at the centrefold of the book. With 25 years of book printing experience and plenty of custom options, Clubcard is the smart Canadian choice for your custom book printing.
