As Narine and Craig have pointed out, brochure printing costs vary and you can expect to pay anywhere between $170 and $500 per 1000 piece. Generally speaking, marketing material printing costs are determined by factors such as:

  • Design

  • Design time

  • Copywriting requirements

  • Size and layout 

  • Colour use 

  • Double-sided printing 

  • Paper quality and finish, e.g. matte or glossy 

  • Turnaround time

When possible, aim to order in bulk as this can drive down the costs considerably.
