Online Brochure Printing to Expand Your Target Market

Help customers understand your business better with brochure printing. A low-cost, high-impact marketing tool, brochures put the spotlight on your offer and your company.

Brochures are typically distributed by hand. But these versatile tools can also be mailed or packed with other offers. Stores can include brochures inside gift bags and packaging to share customers their brand story and what they do in their businesses. In schools, brochures can be used to inform students and parents about how they can navigate the new normal in education.

The great thing about brochures is that they can be used in any industry. Print brochures to promote a product or service, distribute information about a cause, or announce upcoming promotions.



Create Impact With a Variety of Folds And Sizes

    PrintRunner brochures come in nine (9) standard sizes:
  • 4.25” x 5.5”
  • 4.25” x 11”
  • 5.5” x 8.5”
  • 8” x 9”
  • 8.5” x 11”
  • 8.5” x 14”
  • 9” x 12”
  • 11” x 17”
  • 11” x 25.5”

You can also customize the size of your brochures to fit the needs of your brand. On the dropdown menu, choose Custom Sizes and pick the size you need. Our custom brochure sizes range from 6” to 27.75” (width) and 4” to 16” (height).

Please note that all sizes refer to the non-folded format. You can choose the number of panels you want on the Paper Fold dropdown. The different folds allow you to organize information neatly and logically, so your customers can easily follow and understand your message.
Want to know how you can choose the best size and folding option?for your brochure design? It really depends on the amount of content you want to include.



Brochure Marketing Tips

Use our online brochure maker (also known as our online design tool) to begin creating that versatile promotional material. All brochures are printed high-quality paper and cardstock, each number indicating their corresponding thickness. Matte or glossy coating adds protection to your brochures.

    To create an effective promotional tool, here are some tips to keep in mind before printing your brochure template.
  • Brochure folds are the most distinctive features of brochures. Use the distinct flow of each to organize information.
  • Limit the use of font types. Usually, two or three different fonts are enough—one for the title, one for the headers, and one for the body.
  • Know your paper stock and coating. Consider using thicker paper for added durability. The coating you choose depends on your intended effect. A glossy finish is able to highlight images without drowning out your text. The matte coating is more subdued and guides customers through reading the brochure design.
  • Use simple statements to get your point across and proofread before printing.
  • Use high resolution photos. That first impression is important. Often, customers are turned off by blurry or grainy images.


Our customer service team members are experts who will guide you through our brochure printing options. Make sure to avail of our free check offer so all bases are covered before brochure printing.

Note: We fold all paper stock and 10 pt. cardstock brochures before delivery.

Question & Answer

“Size before folding” refers to the brochure’s length and width before it is folded into panels. We let you choose according to the total size since the folded size differs per fold. You can refer to the image above for how the size appears before folding and the corresponding folded size for each folding option.

The most popular sizes depend on the number of folds. For half-fold brochures, the most popular sizes (before folding) are: 5.5”x 8.5”, 8.5” x 11”, and 11” x 17”. The most popular sizes (before folding) for three-panel brochures are 8.5” x 11”, 8.5” x 14”, and 11” x 17”.

We recommend 70 lb. uncoated paper if you need to write information while discussing details with a client.

The 80 lb. and 100 lb. glossy papers offer more durability with a shiny finish, perfect for handing out or giving away at an event.

The 10 pt. cardstock is preferred for those who need something extra durable for display, as inserts or giveaways with products, or as mailable brochures.

This depends on your brochure type, material, and quantity. For example, ordering 1000 pieces of 8.5” x 11” trifold brochures with full-color printing on 100 lb. glossy paper will cost 23¢ each. The more you order, the lower the cost per unit. You can use the order calculator to check the price of the brochure you would like to order. Simply indicate the quantity, size, paper, and type of fold so the order calculator can generate an estimated price for your brochures.

We offer a wide range of brochure folds that will work for any business. Here are our most popular types:

Half fold is printed on both sides and folded to give you a total of four panels. It’s a common choice because the design layout is simple to work with.

Tri-fold is another favorite among businesses because they are compact when folded and large enough to accommodate text and images.

French fold works well for large illustrations like maps and infographics.

Whatever your purpose, there’s plenty of ways you can customize your brochures with PrintRunner. Learn more about different brochure types and their ideal uses here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best price, excellent quality I did a lot of comparison with a multitude of competitors. Some other printers sport lower prices at the beginning, but as final shipping costs were added, print runner "WON" hands-down, as they have FREE shipping!!!! Also, the Print Runner order website is easy to follow with immediate proof feedback. In addition, Print Runner doesn't inundate you with annoying "up-sales" when placing your order. Others, like Vista Print, appear lower in price when you use their coupon for first time orders, but what if you need repeat orders? Then you will start paying much more than with Print Runner! And, NO, I did not get paid to write this review. I am a real customer with printing needs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality and Customer Service Ordered 500 tri-fold brochures. When I received them there were print errors on the majority of them. I brought this up with their support and they reprinted my order and delivered them 2 days later. No errors on the reprint. Excellent quality overall. I've used various printers over the years and none have ever been 100% error-free. But Print Runner took care of the issue quickly and professionally. Will use Print Runner again.

I sent the file; received the proof quickly, and the 1,000 brochures shipped in three business days, as promised. Allow enough to take advantage of free shipping! Unfortunately I did not have the luxury of time, but Print Runner will ship using your shipping number, and you can specify the speed option. Brochures arrived with two days to spare, and the brochure is beautiful. GREAT JOB, PRINT RUNNER!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded shipping expectation I'm always impressed at the fast turnaround. It's never guaranteed to arrive earlier than the given shipping date, but this has been my experience over the past few orders. The quality of my prints met expectation. The minor issues were my fault, not the printer. I had a time crunch and couldn't sweat some of the small stuff BUT I was happy that they brought the issues to my attention. If I was not trying to beat a deadline, i would have corrected the issue according to their recommendation.

I use simple free flyer, brochure, and other document templates from other websites, download the materials as PDF files, and easily use them to order my own print materials.
