Some people also find that they can save money by printing parts of the booklet using different paper and color qualities. The common technique is to have the front and back pages (or the cover pages) printed in high quality paper with full color images and text. The inside pages are then printed with medium to lower quality paper, with the images and text that use bare colors, or they might even be printed in simple black and white. This saving technique still gives you an impressive booklet cover with all its marketing capabilities while still minimizing the cost of printing the inside pages.
