Choose from the following services to make your project the best it can be.
Coil binding is a continuous loop that goes along the edge of the paper. This holds the book together. Pages can be added or changed later, but this is not recommended. Coil binding comes in 11-inch lengths in black, our standard color. We can, if it is needed for your job, order colors.
Collating is sometimes needed after the job has been finished. It is the process of arranging pages into sequence after printing. It is mostly done by machine, with a few exceptions.
Also a function of bindery, cutting has a maximum sheet width of 28 inches. We cannot cut plastic, metal, or staples.
Drilling is yet another finishing procedure in bindery. We drill three holes or two holes on the side or top of the page.
Many folds are available, including the half, letter, accordion, right-angle, half and half, and double parallel. Other unique folds can be arranged by request.
Letters, cards, or brochures can be inserted into envelopes and placed in the mail for you. Please provide a sample of how you would like the files inserted when requesting this in your order.
Laminating is a finishing procedure done in bindery. It is used often for information that is handled frequently or for items that may be exposed to moisture or a hostile environment. Printing Services can laminate a piece up to 34 inches wide. We can’t laminate anything thicker than card stock, nor can we successfully laminate layers of paper. We can’t be responsible for any outside work brought in for us to laminate. If something is harmed during our lamination, we will not be liable for any cost of items not printed in our department.
Padding is a procedure to hold books or notepads together. The standard number of sheets are 25 and 50 for 20# paper. Other items can be padded, such as two-part or three-part NCR forms as an example of an individual set.
Peforating is for jobs that require tear-offs or coupons. You can use these on a mailing brochure with a mail-panel return that is coming back to your department, for example.
Another popular method of binding is the saddle-stitch booklet. This method produces booklets that fold in half with the stitches on the fold. This binding is practical for booklets, programs, and reports.
Scoring is needed before the job is folded. Items that are produced on cover-weighted stock or on our production color machine get scored.
Most binding departments call these combs or spiral combs. These come in 11-inch lengths in black, our standard color. These will fit books in the range of 1.5 to 2 inches in thickness.
