Spiral binding

A spiral is a continuous coil looped through a series of holes punched in the pages. It is the most commonly used form of binding for course manuals and is very user-friendly. Books up to and including 240 sheets can be spiral bound.


Die-cutting is the process of a metal template (or die) set to punch a custom shape out of paper. Some of the most common forms or die cutting are; business card slits, title page windows and rounded or curved edges. This feature is an very unique process and has major impact, however there is a higher cost associated with it.

Drilling paper

We can punch from one to three holes in any of your documents for easy insertion into binders or folders.

Do you have thick reference books that seem to disappear from your office? Send it to us to have one hole drilled in the top left corner, then attach a string and tie it to your counter or desk.


Our electric folder can fold your brochures, flyers or newsletters in a variety of styles. If we will be folding a single-sided sheet, please specify whether you would like the page header folded in or facing out. Please fold up a sample document so we can see exactly how you want the printing folded.


We have special padding glue for creating routing slip pads, memo pads and note pads. Padding may also be useful to you for keeping a stack of identical forms together; pages can be torn off one by one as needed. A standard pad has 100 sheets.


Shrinkwrap is thin plastic film wrapped around a manual, then flash heated to shrink it and create a tight package. Shrinkwrapping is an excellent and inexpensive way of packaging course materials that have been three-hole drilled or to keep tapes or CDs packaged with your manual. Shrinkwrapping costs $0.60 per package.

Cutting paper

We have a large guillotine-type cutter which cleanly slices through all papers. We can cut your tickets, cards or bookmarks to any size you need.

Crop marks or cut lines are appreciated and requested so we can see where exactly you would like the cuts to be made.


Stitching gives the same result as a staple – stitching is the term used when the staples are created from a length of steel wire.

We do three types of stapling:

  1. Corner staple
  2. Side stitch
  3. Saddle stitch 
  4. We can staple/stitch books up to 40 sheets thick. Thicker than that, an alternative such as spiral binding or three-hole drilling will be necessary

Perfect bound

Perfect binding puts all the pages or signatures together, roughens and flattens the edge, then a flexible adhesive attaches the paper cover to the spine. Paperback novels are one example of perfect binding.
