We offer a wide variety options to bind books.

Side stitching
Used when the bulk of a book is too great for saddle stitching. Staples are inserted about a ¼ of an inch along the left side of a book. If saddle stitching a book it is important to remember this and allow sufficient margins.


Spiral Binding
Uses plastic spirals or GBC combs placed on the left side of the book. The spirals come in a wide variety of color. An excellent choice for books that need to be opened flat.

Scoring
To indent a sheet of paper. Used to make folding easier particularly on
Heavy weight paper. For example, as a general rule invitations are scored so in order to give the user the ability to write, type or print with an office laser printing then easily fold. inside of an invitation.


Perforating
The process is very similar to scoring but rather that create a straight edge for folding it produces a series of dashed slits to make tearing easier.
