Devine Printing offers a wide range of binding and finishing services.
- Saddle-stitch: Printed pages are folded and then stapled along the fold, allowing pages to lie flat.
- Perfect Bound: Pages in a perfect bound book are gathered into sets of pages called signatures, then glued together and into a cover.
- Mechanical: There are many types of mechanical bindings, including comb, double wire and plastic coil bindings (typical for cookbooks and other books whose pages must lie flat). Velobind is a plastic grip binding, which is most commonly used on reports and presentations.
- Notepad: Single sheets of paper are gathered and glued along one edge.
- Paste: An alternative to saddle-stitching in which each page is glued to the page before it. This method is only appropriate for short booklets made of relatively lightweight paper.
- Die Cutting: Die cutting is used to create images by cutting paper into irregular shapes. This method is used to create labels and decals, as well as door hangers and presentation folders.
- Folding: There are a variety of options for creating brochures and booklets. More complicated folding requests are generally more expensive.
- Scoring and Creasing: Scoring and creasing are done to ensure a piece folds more easily and is primarily used for folders, cards, brochures, and other presentation materials.
- Hole Punching: Hole punching (drilling) for three-ring and other standard binders.
- Perforating: To perforate a page, a line of holes are made in the paper to make tearing easier.
- Laminating: A page is covered by a layer of polyester which makes it durable and waterproof. Various thickness can be used to meet your needs.
- Embossing: To add a third dimension to your printed materials, a die can rasie or indent your page with a design or type.
- Foil Stamping: The surface of your printed material that can withstand heat and presure can be imprinted with a wide range of opaque colors using foil.
