Collating is the process of gathering individual sheets and other elements of your printing project and assembling those elements into a final product.
Our printers can collate automatically while printing to save on costs of hand collating.
Did you know that "stitching" is another word for stapling? The only difference is that the phrase stapling is generally used when you're trying to bind together no more than 40 pages. Stapling is done with lightweight desktop equipment. Stitching generally requires an industrial-sized piece of equipment. At our printing firm, we have a variety of stapling and stitching machines that can handle any type of book or printed project you need to assemble.
When you need high-speed folding, you've come to the right place. Many different folding formats are available, and for more unique folding jobs, we also offer several hand-folding options.
When you need to fold a printed project that is on heavier card stocks of paper, we suggest you have it scored.
Scoring puts a groove in the paper that ensures the fold is accurate and doesn't damage the ink or paper.
Perforating a printed form can create an easy-to-remove response card, coupon, customer feedback form, or ticket stub.
It sounds a little funny, but we're experts at drilling holes. We have paper drilling machines that feature several different sizes of paper drills and enable us to position the hole(s) just about anywhere on the sheet of paper.
Here's an interesting note: Did you know studies have shown that people tend to save printed items longer if they are three-hole drilled? Marketing experts think that subconsciously we tend to feel like we need to put a three-hole drilled sheet into a ring binder or save it for future reference.
We have very sophisticated guillotine paper cutters that are extremely accurate.
These commercial paper cutters feature high-pressure hydraulic clamps to prevent paper shifting and razor-sharp carbon steel blades to guarantee the most precise cuts.
Many carbonless forms and invoices require sequential numbering. Numbering is an inexpensive and effective way to maintain accurate records and improve organization.
We can number a variety of papers and sheet sizes. Choose from black or red ink, as well as descending or ascending numbers on most printed projects.
