Directory Printing


Directories are great for religious groups, clubs, sports teams, or businesses looking to link its members to one another. Printing directories for members of an organization or for employees at a firm helps them find contact information for one another quickly and address concerns efficiently. Directories are great for girl scout and boy scout troops, sports teams, religious affiliates, school organizations, or even for cataloguing important information within a firm. Directories can also be used to create phone trees for emergency and update phone calls and emails.

When creating your directory make sure you know what format you will use: i.e. phone/email tree, alphabetical order, location, etc. Include clear instructions at the beginning explaining the format and use of the directory. Make sure you double check and confirm all phone numbers, emails, and addresses before sending the information to the printers. Mistakes can be costly if used for emergencies or other important information. Be sure to get approval from all listed and notify each person that he or she will be included in the directory and what information will be listed. Always include an opt-out option for those who do not want their information included.

A good directory printer should offer at minimum the following options:

  • One-color, two-color, and full color options
  • Self cover or plus cover options (cover stock the same or different from the inside text)
  • Saddle-stitched binding options
  • Multiple booklet printing sizes
  • In-house, direct mailing
  • Finishing options
  • Hole drilling
  • Shrink wrapping
  • Folding and custom trim options
