Presentation book advantages

A Professional presentation Book

HP’s Professional Presentation Books also offer advantages beyond a polished image:

  • Freedom
    Stop relying on copy shops, their schedules, and their prices to get impeccable results.
  • Pristine originals
    No holes or adhesives needed.
  • No equipment
    Bind materials securely without equipment.
  • Flexibility
    Easily add, subtract, or rearrange your materials.
  • Safety
    Protect documents from bending and the elements as you transport them.
  • Savings
    These books are re-usable, making them economical and better for the environment than bindings that can’t be re-used.

Assemble your presentation book

Book’s spine opening

Assemble these books in three simple steps

  1. Fold back the covers of the book, preferably on a hard, flat surface.
  2. Insert your pages (between one and 75 pages of regular paper) in the open spine.
  3. Gently let the book covers shut.
Helpful hints:
  • A paper or binder clip on the right-hand side of your pages can keep them aligned while you place them in the book’s spine.
  • Rest the pages against the metal guide at the bottom of the spine to position them properly.

Create your title page

Title page to fit window

Screenshot of selecting MARGINS

Select Margins in Page Layout menu.

Each Professional Presentation Book has a 4" x 3" window you can use for an attention-grabbing title. To design for this window in Microsoft Word, use the following settings:

For Windows Vista:

  1. In the Page Layout menu, select Margins.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the margin choices and select Custom Margins….
  3. Enter the following values:
    Top: 2”
    Left: 2.3”
    Bottom: 6.2”
    Right: 2.6”

With these margins, your design will fit in the window. However, always be sure to do a test print and insert it in your Professional Presentation book.

Make your presentation stand out

An eye-catching presentation

An aesthetically pleasing presentation can help get—and keep—people’s attention.

  • Use the right paper
    When you use 20 lb. weight HP Multipurpose Paper in your books, you can fill them to their 75-sheet capacity. However, for smaller presentations when you really want that “wow” factor, try printing on HP Premium Presentation Paper.
  • Add visual aids
    Clarify your message by adding informative illustrations, charts, photos, and graphs.
  • Use colour
    Coordinating the colours of your photos, text, and background will make your message more cohesive. 
  • Use restraint
    Avoid clutter, and don’t be afraid of leaving some white space.
  • Proofread
    Few things can damage your professional image more quickly than spelling and grammatical errors. Even the best writers should have a second set of eyes go over their work.
