Custom Handbooks, Printed and Bound

Handbooks are proven to increase the confidence and efficiency of workers.

Handbooks are the ultimate reference tool

Handbooks or pocketbooks are small, compact publications that provide concise and practical information on a specific subject. They are designed to be easily carried in a pocket, bag, or purse, hence the name “pocketbook.” These books are typically lightweight and have a compact size, making them convenient references that can be easily accessed on the go.

Pocketbooks cover a wide range of topics, including but not limited to:

Reference Handbooks:

These provide quick access to facts, formulas, definitions, and other essential information related to a particular field or subject. For example, you can find reference handbooks for medicine, engineering, law, grammar, or specific industries.

Travel Guides:

Pocket-sized travel guides provide information about various destinations, including maps, local customs, attractions, dining options, transportation details, and other useful tips for travelers.

Language Handbooks:

These pocketbooks focus on grammar rules, vocabulary, and common phrases for a specific language, enabling users to learn or reference essential language skills while on the go.

Emergency Response Handbooks:

These compact guides contain instructions and information on emergency procedures, first aid techniques, CPR guidelines, and other essential steps to follow during emergencies.

Field Guides:

Pocket-sized field guides are often used by outdoor enthusiasts, naturalists, or hobbyists to identify plants, animals, birds, insects, or geological features found in specific regions.

The purpose is to provide quick and easily accessible information to users when they need it. They serve as handy references, offering a condensed version of information on a specific subject, allowing individuals to find answers or guidance conveniently without the need for more extensive resources.

    The most popular type of handbook is a folded and stitched (Saddle-stitched) booklet. You can customize your handbook to be full color for the covers and the inside pages or go to a budget-friendly option for black ink throughout. The paper stock can be either a coated or uncoated stock but if you need to write on the pages, we recommend an uncoated stock. pages must be in multiples of 4 and the handbooks can be up to a maximum of 52 pages including covers. If your book is larger than 52 pages we recommend perfect binding.
