Broadsheet

This is the largest of newspaper formats and is characterized by long vertical pages. Page sizes for this format range from 16.5" wide by 22" tall down to 11" wide by 22" tall. 

 

 

Tabloid

The most common format that we print the tabloid is used for newspapers that do not want the long vertical pages that characterize a broadsheet. Page sizes for this format range from 11"wide by 16.5" tall down to 11" wide by 11" tall. 

 

 

Booklet

Booklets are typically used for "magazine style" publications, catalogs, and newsletters. This format does require the piece to go through the bindery process for saddle-stitch and trim.
