Want to know how to make a booklet? You're in the right place.
Today we'll share a simple booklet definition, answer other pressing questions about booklets, and show you how easy it is to create your very own booklet using editable booklet templates from Envato Elements.
What Is a Booklet?
A booklet is a small bound book. It usually has a soft cover and a limited number of pages, and it focuses on a specific topic. A great way to define a booklet may be to remember that a booklet usually contains less information than a book, but more than a brochure.
What Is a Booklet Format?
Booklets are typically smaller than books. That may mean fewer pages or physically smaller. A simple saddle stitch or two staples are often used to hold the pages together.
How Many Pages Is a Booklet?
Booklets generally range from 6 to 36 pages.
What Is a Booklet Used For?
Booklets are used to convey a limited amount of information in a simple, cost-effective manner, and they can be used for a wide range of purposes from promotional to instructional to informational.
How to Make a Booklet
When you need to create a booklet, the easiest and most cost-effective way is to use a professionally designed editable booklet template. Editable booklet templates offer professionally designed layouts with placeholder text, images, and graphics. When you customise the template, the layout stays locked in place, but you replace the placeholders with your own content. Editable booklet templates can be used repeatedly, so you only need to buy a template once. Now let's look at some cool editable booklet templates from Envato Elements.
