Binding


Our binding solutions give you the power to turn printed pages into a first class document that is bound to impress.


From on-line or on-demand printing and finishing options we are the local leader in providing innovative finishing solutions. We provide the full range of plastic comb, wire, thermal, perfect, case and saddle stitching options creating professionally bound reports, proposals and presentations. In most cases it takes just minutes to create documents and presentations that are sure to put you or your company in the best light.

Saddle Stitching

Saddle Stitch Binding Folded sections are gathered together one inside the other and stitched (stapled) with two or more wires through the centre of the pages. Normally used on books that contain up to 96 pages (this page count may be reduced if a heavy paper stock is used).

Plastic Comb Binding

Comb Binding Holes are punched into the pages at the binding edge. A plastic "comb" is then inserted into the holes. Because the comb is under tension, it snaps closed when the tension is released. This is probably the most common form of binding as it is versatile and reasonably durable while being quick and cost effective.

Wiro Binding

Wire Binding Holes are punched into the pages at the binding edge then continuous double looped wire is put through the holes and clamped together. The binding wire is available in different colours and sizes, and for small runs is convenient and cost effective.

Perfect Binding

Perfect Binding Folded sections are gathered together one on top of the other then the spine is sawn off. The block of pages is then glued together. Individual pages can also be bound using this method. Normally used when saddle stitching is not able to be done, but can be used for lesser page counts. Also offers the advantage that printing can be done on the spine of the finished book.

Ring Binding

Ring Folder Binding Two, three or four holes are drilled or punched into the binding edge of the pages. The punched pages are put into a plastic binder fitted with metal fingers which go through the punched holes and are then clipped together. Suitable for a wide range of loose leaf documents, particularly if the document is likely to require frequent updating.

Thermal Binding

Thermal Binding Thermal binding uses acetate front & back covers plus a steel strip down the spine to quickly adhese, for a professional presentation. Your document is securely bound and provides an economical alternative to perfect binding.

Canadian Binding

Canadian Binding

In Half Canadian binding the wire is partially concealed behind a square spine. The cover can be printed single or double sided which allows the document to be opened flat.

Case Binding

Case Binding Folded sections are gathered, sewn together and trimmed to form a book block. Endpapers are attached to the first and last sections of the book block then the back edge of the book block is coated with glue and a strip of gauze glued to the spine. This is then placed within the case (cover) on a casing-in machine which pastes the end papers to the case and fits the cover.

Case Binding SleeveCase binding is usually reserved for books that are expected to have a long life, particularly legal books and the like. At times these have leather or leather look-alike coverings and are at the prestige end of the binding hierarchy. This is the most expensive form of binding and is not offered by many finishing companies.

Finishing


From laminating to mounting, we offer a wider range of options for presenting and preserving your work.


Laminating

Laminating can be achieved in either a gloss or matt finish with dimensions all the way from business card size up to 1 metre wide by 5 metres long. Perfect for banners or conference posters, the laminate will increase the durability and professionalism of any printed material.

Mounting

Foam core or foam board is a reasonably strong, lightweight and easily cut material used as a versatile alternative to photo framing, as backing for photo frames, conference presentations and general signage. It has become increasingly popular due to its professional and stylish finish.
We are also able to mount onto corflute board, which is more recognisable as real-estate signage. It is a rigid, ribbed plastic board that can be adhered to with a wide range of materials.

Celloglazing

Celloglazing is similar to laminating in that a thin protective film is applied over the print to enhance it's durability and rigidity, but without the laminate overhanging the print. The added lustre of celloglazed product gives a more professional finish to products such as business cards and invites and can be applied in either matte or gloss up to A3 in size.
