Bindery Services

Cutting Cutting - An important part of the printing process, our bindery professionals will accurately cut and trim your order to the required size to ensure a quality end product.
Scoring Scoring – A process of making a crease in heavier weight paper so it will fold easier. Scoring also helps improve the appearance of a fold to provide a clean, professional looking edge without cracks or buckles.
Perforating Perforating – applying small, separated cuts or holes to paper that allow the sections to be easily torn apart when necessary. Great for coupons, tickets, discount cards, or customer feedback forms.

Drilling - The process of creating round holes in paper using a rotating bit. A standard 3-hole drilling along the left side of the paper is the most common but any hole combination is possible.

Padding Padding - The process of adding an adhesive compound across the edge of a stack of paper to adhere them together. The most common use is for notepads or forms comprised of 50 sheets of paper backed with a hard cardboard backing.

Stitching - Applying a staple to the upper left corner or two on the side of a group of papers to hold them together.


Folding - The process of bending paper in a specific way to create a booklet, brochure, pamphlet or other product. Most printers have equipment to make common folds but hand folding is also available.

Collating Collating - Printed output is assembled as sets in sequential order before binding.
Laminating Laminating - Applying a clear protective coating to the printed material.
