FINISHING OPTIONS

SADDLE STITCHING refers to a very popular book binding method in which folded sheets are gathered together one inside the other and then stapled through the fold line with wire staples.

WIRO BINDING machines create cost-effective, durable and professional documents that lay flat for easy reading and allow for 360 degree rotation of bound pages.

PERFECT BINDING, also known as adhesive binding, applies an adhesive to the spine of gathered pages which, when dry, keeps them securely bound.

EMBOSSING is the process of creating raised images and designs in paper and other materials. An embossed pattern is raised against the background.

DEBOSSING is the process of creating recessed images and designs in paper and other materials. A debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material.

GOLD or SILVER FOILING is a beautiful embellishment for packaging, swing tags or special invitations. It conveys a sense of prestige and luxury and sends a message of sophistication to your audience.

DIE CUTTING is a process using a steel cutting die/knife to cut out unique shapes, edges and message windows in greeting cards and other stationery design elements.

RAISED IMAGE PRINTING on a flat piece of paper gives your printed projects depth and touchability. (After all, who can resist running their fingers across a raised image.) Raised printing, or thermography, can be used to enhance printed materials.

MATT OR GLOSS CELLOGLAZING is a process where a thin plastic coating is heat bonded to the outside of a sheet. Celloglaze has the smooth, silky feeling and increases the durability of business cards, menus, or book covers.

SPOT UV VARNISH is a special effect that puts an overprint varnish only on specific areas of a printed piece, spot varnish is often used to make a photograph pop off the page, highlight drop caps, or to create texture and subtle images on the page.
