Brochures can be printed in 1-color, 2-color or full-color formats. Depending on the quantity we’ll use digital printing (for small quantities) or print offset (for large quantities or sizes larger than 13 x 19). They can be printed with PMS inks, glossy or matte AQ or varnish, gloss UV, soft-touch UV coatings, etc. Brochures can also be die-cut, embossed or foiled to create a unique, high-end piece.
