Bookbinding – There are many options to choose from when it comes time to bind your booklets or manuals.
- Coil Binding: A continuous, spring-shaped piece of plastic, this durable, crush-resistant bind allows a bound document to lay flat. Often used for manuals and notebooks. A series of round holes are punched into the binding edge, and black plastic coils are inserted. The inside margin should be generous to allow for the holes.
- Wire Binding: Wire-O® is a mechanical binding using double-looped coated metal. It gives bound books a competitive edge and adds a classic elegance. It’s attractive finish, high quality and easy application makes it the preferred choice over other finishing systems by Professional Binders worldwide.
- Comb (GBC) Binding: This curled, comb-style bind allows for easy addition and removal of pages. This option is ideal for reports and manuals.
- Hole Punching: Simply the drilling of three holes down the edge of the book so that the pages may be inserted into any standard three ring binder.
Stapling/Booklet making – One or two staples are commonly placed approximately ¼” from the left edge of the printed set. Folded sets that are stapled along the folded edge are called booklets or saddle stitched.
- Booklet/Saddle-stitching: Used to bind pieces such as newsletters, programs and small catalogs. Staples are forced through the spine of the book with the ends folded down between the two center pages. This type of binding requires that the pages must be in multiples of four.Corner Stapling: The most economical type of binding. A single staple is applied to the top edge of the printed piece.
- Side stitching: This works well for books that are too bulky for saddle-stitching. Pages are assembled with two staples down the side of the book.
Folding – When you need high-speed folding, you’ve come to the right place
- Our finishing department provides many different options for folding. Our high-speed folding machine can fold at speeds exceeding 20,000 sheets per hour.
Scoring/Perforating – When you need to fold a printed project that is on heavier stocks of paper, we suggest you have it scored
- Scoring puts a shallow indention on the surface layer of the paper ensuring a smooth, crisp fold. This is especially helpful when folding heavier paper stock.
- Perforating a printed form can create an easy-to-remove response card, coupon, or customer feedback form. We offer a variety of perforating blades to give you flexibility when designing pieces that need to separate effortlessly.
