Binding Options

Saddle Stitching:

Sheets of paper (signatures) are nested and stapled together. through the centerfold with wire staples.

 

This is an effective, and economical, binding method for smaller pages counts.  One drawback is there is no spine to print on. Another is as the page count increases the pages will start to bow around the center gold.   Suitable for 4 up to approximately 72 pages, depending on the paper stock and weight.

Perfect binding:

With the help of adhesive, folded pages (signatures)  are glued together at the spine, and a paper cover is wrapped around glued to the signatures making up the spine. This type of binding gives a more professional appearance than saddle stitch binding and has a printable spine.  This is the most common type of biding for catalogs with medium and large page counts.

 Suitable from  40 pages and up, depending on paper stock and stock weight.

Smyth Sewn Binding:

Also called section sewn,. Folded, gathered, and collated pages (signatures) are sewn together at the spine. First through individual signatures and then, for extra durability and flexibility, these signatures are likewise sewn together with thread

 

This holding power of this type of binding is optimal, and is used when heavier paper stock is bound., and/or heavy usage of the printed piece is expected.   Suitable from 4 to 1000 pages

Wire-O Binding:

Single sheets are fastened by wire rings "Wire-O" through a series of holes punched along one side of the printed pieces

The pages can 'lay-flat' or open right out for easy reading. This type of binding is robust, and a good option for large manuals.  A hard or soft cover sheet (front & back) can be used. It is suitable from 4 to 500 pages

Paper Options

Coated Paper or Art Paper

Coated paper, also known as art paper, includes both gloss art paper and matte art paper. Art paper is best suited to be printed for photos, images, and colorful backgrounds, as this is one paper option that shows the color quite well. Where gloss art paper has a little shine on it, matte art paper feels like silk, perhaps the reason why matte art paper is also known as silk paper.

53# text / 80gsm

Uncoated Paper or Offset Paper or Woodfree Paper

Also termed as offset paper or wood-free paper, uncoated paper is one of the best papers to be used for a more 'natural’, ‘earthy’ or ‘organic’ look for your printed piece. Due to the ink being absorbed more into the paper compared to coated stocks, the colors will look different, very muted and soft, less vibrant with less detail in images.  It's more about the 'feeling' than the fidelity of the reproduced image. 

 

Uncoated paper is available in :

20# / 70gsm

22#    80gsm

24# / 90gsm

28# / 100gsm

32# / 120gsm

Fancy & Special Papers & Materials

Special paper including, texture paper, linen paper, parchment paper, tracing paper, waterproof paper, vinyl, cloth, etc. are used for cover purposes. Where some special papers are used for hardcover book end sheets, there are also some that are used for inner paper or tab pages.

Cover finshing Options

LAMINATIONS

Lamination adds a plastic coating to the finished product. It’s a durable finish, offering protection from cracking and scuffing, and prolongs the life of the item.

Lamination also looks and feels great. Ideal for hardcover books and catalogs, lamination prevents paper from tearing, folds from cracking, and ink from transferring or rubbing onto fingers.

Lamination can elevate the quality and durability of a finished print project, but it can also alter the final color of a product ever so slightly.

Lamination is highly recommended for ink-heavy projects.

Matt Lamination

Matt lamination is our most commonly used finish, and is recommended for use with silk paper. If you’re ever in doubt as to which finish to use with a cover or staple bound booklet, choose silk paper with a matt lamination.

Unlike its gloss counterpart, matt is muted and offers a classy, understated finish. It’s also a good option for flyers, posters, and business cards to prevent scuffs and scratches.

Gloss Lamination

Gloss - which, as the name suggests, offers a high gloss finish - is recommended for gloss paper to further enhance the brightness of colors and intensity of shine.

Typically used for all types of publication and catalog,’, A gloss cover with gloss lamination offers a super shiny, high contrast, premium finish. It’s the perfect combination for your catalog, brochure or magazine.

Soft-touch Lamination

A lush matt finish, soft touch lamination is (unsurprisingly) soft to the touch. It’s a great option for business cards, as the pleasant, tactile sensation often catches people by surprise and makes quite an impression.

Soft touch isn’t as commonly used as our other laminations. However, with an almost moleskin leather-like feel, it can add a premium look to hardback and paperback books and other products.

COATINGS

Aqueous Varnish Coating

is an ink applied to paper stock to give the page a smooth finish. It offers less protection than lamination, but it does seal the printed material, helping to preserve and protect it.

Usually a varnish is applied from edge to edge, and is a good alternative to laminate.

We offer two options for Aqueous Varnish

  • Gloss Aqueous is a high gloss finish, visually similar to gloss laminate

  • Matt: aqueous dulls and softens color,, though it’s not as noticeable as matt laminate

Spot (Partial) UV Coating

Spot UV - also known as Gloss UV - is a high gloss finish applied to specific areas of a print product. The result is creates captivating contrast, making it the perfect choice for premium business cards and luxury brochures.

For the very best results, we recommend selecting a matt laminate, then a Spot UV finish to draw attention to a particular area of your design. Visually striking, it’s a terrific option for highlighting a brand name or a logo, or to help make a design feature more prominent.

3D UV is a similar finish to the Spot UV; the only difference is that the ink is thicker. This raises it from the surface, which adds prominence and texture. This is ideal for a unique, high-end look and feel.

We have the expertise and commitment to fulfill your catalog needs.
