We will design your book layout into multiples of four pages, print it and saddle stitch it securely. The book is bound with wire staples for extra durability, leaving you with excellent quality booklets.

6. Laminating

Laminating lends longevity to your printed items and is ideal for restaurant menus, price lists and posters. Laminating is the process whereby clear plastic film is bonded onto your printed materials. The finished product will usually have a sealed edge, which means that the printed product is completely encapsulated in plastic. Laminated documents can withstand a lot of handling and can easily be wiped clean and last for a very long time. Speak to us about your lamination, encapsulation or mounting requirements so that we can help you find the most economical solution for your unique needs.

7. Encapsulating

Encapsulation involves covering and sealing your printed material with a durable, waterproof plastic film for a professional finish that helps strengthen the encapsulated product. An overleaf is often left around the edges to create a completely waterproof seal. Encapsulation is commonly used for maps, sales presentations, ID cards, banners and menus. We can encapsulate any type of document of card in your preferred size. Speak to us for the most affordable prices on your encapsulation project.

8. Perfect Binding

Perfect binding adds a professional finishing touch to your bookbinding requirements. Different to other types of binding, perfect binding doesn't use stitches, but glue which looks neat and offers a secure binding. A quick and affordable method, you will see most modern paperbacks are held together with perfect binding, a method suitable for self publishing of holiday or travel books, recipes, photo albums or training manuals.

Hot foiling works with a transfer system, similar to typewriting ribbon. One of our popular services, clients use foiling as a high-impact visual marketing tool to add value to their printed materials and product labels.

11. Embossing

Embossing adds a subtle 3-dimensional effect to your materials. The process involves two metal dies pressed together to raise your text or image above the surface of the paper or card to create a 3D effect.

UV varnishing adds a striking effect on laminated paper, for high quality designs. Applied to a selected area or to the entire print surface, UV varnishing adds longevity to your print media. UV varnish options include Spot UV varnishing, which means that the finish is only added to a certain part of the print, usually the images or logos. UV varnish finishing adds high-gloss quality effects to your prints, while spot UV varnishing creates a beautiful contrast between the light-absorbing matt lamination and the highly light-reflective UV varnishing. This method is popular with high quality calendars, posters, brochures and business cards.
