Materials for Bookmarks

No-one uses a bookmark just once. That’s why we recommend using a sturdier paper grammage. Any paper that has a grammage of 250gsm or above would provide enough strength.

Recycled Paper

170 | 250gsm

Recycled paper consists of 100% reused paper. As well as saving wood resources, in comparison with conventional paper production, more than 70% of the energy and water used is saved. In short: Recycled paper significantly protects the environment.

Recycled paper

Silk/Gloss Finish Paper

90 | 135 | 170 | 250 | 300 | 400gsm

This paper is finished with a synthetic silk or gloss coating. This creates a more finished, smoother and stronger surface, enabling high reproduction and better print quality, particularly in the case of pictures and contours.

Silk finish paper

Chromo board

300 | 450gsm

Chromo board is coated with a silk matt finish on both sides and has a smooth surface. It is particularly robust and tear-resistant, making it suitable for high-quality products or advertising materials that require prolonged use. As the surface is coated on both sides, the paper is not writable or stampable.

Finishing Options

Finishing Options

You can order UV coating or a soft touch lamination for silk/gloss finish papers with 135, 170, 250 or 300gsm paper thickness. UV coating makes bookmarks look particularly valuable and creates a pleasing look and feel. Lamination adds even more shine and durability. Our soft touch lamination gives your bookmark a unique feel thanks to its velvety soft surface.

Gloss finishing options ensure a high colour effect, while matt coatings create a particularly high-quality effect and leave no visible fingerprints. We can add a finishing coating to the front and/or back of your bookmarks according to your wishes.

UV Coating

gloss finish

Enrich your printed products with UV lacquer and give your order a high-quality touch. Thanks to modern finishing methods, your product is highly resilient and resistant to external influences.

FAQ's for Bookmarks

Which paper is the right one for my bookmarks?

With our free paper samples brochure, you can examine all our paper types and thicknesses comfortably at home and decide which one suits you best.

How do I avoid white edges around my bookmarks?

Always add a trim allowance of 2 mm to your artwork file. Make sure background pictures and images close to the edge of your design should also extend into this area so we can cut them. This prevents thin, white edges from forming after cutting. More information can be found in our Artwork Instructions Guide.

Bookmarks - A Timeless & Practical Advertising Material

Even with the current popularity of eBooks and tablets, it’s impossible to imagine a world without books and, therefore, bookmarks. These printed strips of material help readers find their place in a book when they have to quickly lay their book aside. Thanks to bookmarks, readers can quickly find their page and continue reading.

For many people, reading is a way to relax and enjoy a moment of peace after a stressful workday. The positive emotions created by reading are supported and associated with bookmarks. Make the most of these positive moments and transform bookmarks into your brand ambassador. Remind your customers of your company every time they open their book. Customise your bookmarks to make them as unique as your business - there’s plenty of scope for original designs and ideas. A well-designed bookmark can help a great deal with promoting your business or services - and every time a reader opens their book, they will see your bookmark.

Printed bookmarks - so much more than a place-holder

Bookmarks are more than just place-holders for books. Many booksellers and publishers use them as flyers or as a way to draw attention to current promotions and vouchers. For example, you could use a bookmark with your business logo as a discount code for your customer’s next book purchase.

Using bookmarks for advertising is not just for publishers and booksellers. You can tailor bookmarks to fit your needs so, no matter what you have in mind, you can print bookmarks to target customers, business partners or employees. Use them to promote competitions or promotions, display new products, target potential customers or add a QR code with a link to a web offer! Let your imagination run free.

Bookmarks work well as a promotional item because they are so easy to distribute. Deliver them in magazines or use them as promotional material during advertising campaigns. Or you could enclose bookmarks in parcels as a small giveaway for your customer. In classic ½ A6 format, bookmarks take up little space.

We have various printing options on offer for your bookmarks:

  • 6 different paper types as a basis for your product
  • Lamination and UV-coating as finishing options
