Digital Binding Services

Just as digital printing requires a different workflow, so does the binding for most digital print jobs to keep them cost effective for our clients.  Because of this, we have digital specific binding equipment.  Some of these include saddle stitchers that can keep variable printed booklet jobs in correct sequence, folders that can lay down a letterpress quality perf/score and automated punch and spooling machines for wire-o-bind, plasticoil and GBC bound booklets.  As as result, this dual workflow allows us to be very competitive on digital projects and is necessary for jobs that have variable content throughout a multiple page layout.

Tab Cutting and Round Cornering

Recently we installed a tab cutting and round cornering machine.  This allows us to tab cut in a wide variety of banks and tab positions and also can angle cut corners and even cut corners in some unique shapes.
