Saddle Stitch Booklets (3 staple on spine) are an effective marketing tool and can be used as an instructional manual for customers, as a catalog of your company’s products, pricelists, annual report, or a newsletter. Booklets must be set up in muliples of 4 pages. One 11 x 17 sheet = 4 - 8.5 x 11 pages. If you set up your file and wind up with only 11 pages for example, insert a blank page somewhere in the document like the inside of the front or back cover.
Sheets of 11 x 17 are used to create 8.5 x 11 finished booklets
Sheets of 8.5 x 11 are used to create 5.5 x 8.5 finished booklets
One sheet = 4 pages
Two Sheets = 8 pages
Three Sheets = 12 pages
and so on.
When composing your document there is no need to set up as 2-up spreads. Leave the pages in their actual size.
