1 - 2 - 3 holes or more in various diameters
The old standby of cookbook type binding using a plastic piece. The larger sizes have locking tabs to prevent them accidentally opening.
Two hard plastic strips placed on the top and bottom of the book and fused by heat to make a very rigid binding. If you do not want the book to come apart, this is the method of choice. Disadvantage is that it does not open flat.
A metal binding similar to the comb binding but is metal and not plastic. Gives a more rigid binding and a different look, but since it is metal if it is crushed it does not bounce back like plastic.
One of the newer and more popular methods. This involves a coil of plastic that is strung through the punched holes and clipped at both ends. The books lay flat, the plastic is quite resilient to crushing and makes a nice finished product.
Involves gluing pads of 50 or 100 sheets. More often this option is used for note pads or office forms. A piece of chipboard is added to strengthen the pad. Wrap-around is a another option for padding. This allows you to continue to write in a glued multi-part pad without transferring information to the next unintended sheet.
is a basic function in a print shop. You want your brochure printed and folded to fit a particular application or use. Our high speed folders can do just that. They have air compressors built in giving the machines suction power to pick the paper up and blowing capacity to keep the paper going where it is suppose to go.
is not a standard finish. The corners of the paper are rounded off. This can set your piece apart from the rest.
