Binding & Collating

Binding

Whether glued, stapled, or otherwise bound together, a proper binding turns a stack of sheets into a book, magazine, or notepad. We present different binding types, from gluing to spiral binding and guide our client on how to choose the perfect binding for your printed product.

we offer many in-house bindery and finishing solutions to best suit each individual client which in turn aids production costs in choosing the right binding technique. 

TYPES OF BINDING

saddle stitch

SADDLE-STITCHED

The gathering of the folded sheets and stapling through the folded line with wire staples.  A minimum of two staples is used, with larger books requiring more staples along the spine or the fold. The minimum book size for this kind of binding is either an 8-page self-cover book.

ASSORTED COIL BINDING

This method involves a plastic or metal spring-like coil. The coil resembles a long spring that is inserted and twisted through small holes punched along the spiral edge of the document. The coil is inserted through punched holes and crimped on the ends to keep the coil from coming out.

PERFECT BINDING

The technique is used for novels, magazines, manuals, catalogs, brochures, and annuals. The printed spine and the cover is usually made from paper or cardstock that is heavier than the interior pages.  The benefits of perfect binding are that it is easy to stack and looks super professional.

collating

Collate Printed Materials

We can collate your documents in any order required.

The collating process assembles pages in the desired sequence, allowing the finished product to look professional and neat for you and your business to utilize. Having your printed materials collated allows you to receive your product already in its finished state, thus saving you the time and money of collating it yourself.
