Our excellent print and digital copying work is complemented by the highest standards of finishing.
If you require advice concerning covers or methods of binding please contact us.


Here are some brief descriptions on the services we offer:

Cutting
A mechanical guillotine is used to trim edges cleanly and accurately

Spiral/Wire Binding
We offer a number of spiral binding solutions such as plastic comb or 'wire-O' binding

Slide Binding
Plastic slides form a spine that grips the pages together

Perfect Binding
A machine gathers the pages, glues the spine and attaches a wrap around cover similar to magazines or soft back books.

Folding and Scoring
Folding is carried out mechanically. Where the material used is thick and prone to cracking when folded, we use a scoring device for a clean finish.

2 or 4 hole punching (free of charge)
This produces holes so that the sheets can be enclosed in a ring or lever arched binder.

Numbering
We can mechanically and electronically apply individual reference numbering to your documents

Collating
After your job is printed we can collate each page for you either mechanically or by hand, ready for binding.

Perforating
We can perforate short or long runs for applications such as tear-out reply cards

Laminating
We have a laminating facility for sizes from A5 to A1. This both protects and adds a professional quality to your documents.
