FAQ "Booklet Labels are not part of our core business. Why should we sell them?" There is a trend toward commercial printers offering a broader basket of printed and digital products. Booklet Labels are a natural extension of that movement as a core part of a booklet label is often an offset printed booklet or pamphlet.
FAQ "We don't know anything about booklet labels. What kind of support are we going to get?" JH Bertrand's project management staff is highly skilled in helping commercial printers prepare their projects for conversion into booklet labels. Beyond that, you are always welcome to speak with Jeff Bertrand (CEO) or Keith Schwertfeger (Director of Business Development) about strategy and product information.
FAQ "Can we print the booklets and send them to JH Bertrand for conversion into booklet labels?" Yes. Absolutely. This is why commercial printers are natural partners to us. We routinely get flat and folded sheets from all over the country that we convert into booklet label products. We thoroughly enjoy these types of collaborations.
When you send us the printing, you get the following benefits
- You take out the mark-up.
- You use your own equipment.
- You can control the print quality.
- Your customer can do the press ok at your facility.
- You know exactly what you are getting.
- You can tell your customer that you are manufacturing part of it. (We act as your "bindery")
FAQ "What about freight?" Freight is often a small expense relative to the entire cost of the project so it is not a big issue.
What you can send us
- Flat sheets.
- Folded booklets and pamphlets (see packaging spec below).
- Printed cartons and core labels to maintain your brand identity.
- Shipping documents and other paperwork.

FAQ "What if we want JH Bertrand to handle the printing for us?" It's just fine. This happens all the time for a lot of reasons. Sometimes, the job turns into a plowfolded project where it is printed, folded and converted IN LINE which would eliminate the need for the printing to be shipped.
