Booklet Binding
We have many, many options to choose from when you need to bind your booklets, manuals, or catalogs.

Here are some of the more popular binding products and services we offer.

Our booklet making machine - A truly amazing piece of equipment that collates, staples, and folds loose sheets into very nice and professional looking booklets.
Comb binding - The classic round plastic bindings that require nineteen little square holes in each sheet of paper. This process can be used for books up to 400 pages. Pages can be added or removed easily. And the finished book lies flat when opened.
Tape bindings - Known for its strength and durability, tape binding is frequently the choice of librarians and graduate school professors. Works best with documents up to 300 pages.
We also provide printed or plain covers, clear acetate covers, and other types of bindings for specialty projects.
Collating
Collating is the process of gathering individual sheets and other elements of your printing project and assembling those elements into a final product.

Copiers can collate automatically, but did you know that we can quickly and efficiently collate other items, too? Our high-speed collating equipment can bring together all the elements of your project, saving you the time it would take to hand-collate the project. The next time you have a big project that requires collating, keep us in mind - we make it so easy, you’ll never
Cutting
We have very sophisticated, computerized, digital paper cutters that are extremely fast and accurate.

Our commercial paper cutters feature high-pressure hydraulic clamps to prevent paper shifting and razor-sharp carbon steel blades to guarantee the most precise cuts.
Folding
When you need high-speed folding, you've come to the right place. Our bindery/finishing department provides many different options for folding. Our high-speed folding machines can fold at speeds exceeding 5,000 sheets per hour. Many different folding formats are available, and for more unique folding jobs, we also offer several hand-folding options.

We can provide unlimited quantities of folded materials for your special printed projects.
Drilling Holes
It sounds a little funny, but we're experts at drilling holes. We have powerful hydraulic paper drilling machines that feature many different sizes of paper drills and enable us to position the hole just about anywhere on the sheet of paper. Just remember to allow 1/2 an inch of extra margin for three-hole drilling along the side of 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.
Stapling
Stapling is one of the simplest – and most effective – methods of binding used today. In addition to stapling loose sheets together through the front of the page, we can saddle-stitch (staple through the spine) magazines and other multi-page items such as catalogs, annual reports, and newsletters.

Saddle-stitching is a sturdy, durable, and attractive binding option. The number of pages our saddle-stitching equipment can bind together varies depending on the weight of the paper used, but the results are the same every time: nice, clean, and professional.
Laminating
Simply put, laminating prolongs the life of your printed projects. How?
  • Increases durability
  • Preserves colors
  • Enables your projects to withstand moisture
  • And protects your projects from fingerprints, abrasions, and smudges.
In addition to the many ways it preserves your projects, laminating also has the power to revolutionize your presentations by allowing for hassle-free display of your documents under a variety of conditions. Plus, the glossy finish gives your projects a professional look that you can be proud of.

Next time you want to add a little something extra to your printing, let us laminate your printed projects for you!
Shrink Wrapping
When you need your printed projects packaged in bundles for easy handling, our thermal-vacuum shrink-wrapping equipment will provide the ideal solution.

If needed, we can provide exact count bundles in a variety of sizes. Shrink-wrapping also extends the shelf life of printed materials and makes shipping safer and easier.
Numbering
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.
Perforating
Perforating a printed form can create an easy-to-remove response card, coupon, or customer feedback form.

Our wide variety of perforating blades gives you flexibility when designing pieces that need to separate effortlessly. We can also design pieces that can stand up to the rigors of post office mailing equipment without pulling apart.

Our highly trained and knowledgeable staff will happily offer suggestions and solutions for your perforating needs.
Rounded Corners
There are a variety of ways to add a little something different to your printed materials. One way is by adding rounded corners. Whether you use rounded corners on labels, nametags, or even business cards, your customers will be impressed with the added flair they provide. Our print shop is equipped to round the corners on a variety of printed products. Stop in to see a sample today, and start thinking of the different printed items that could benefit from rounded corners.
Scoring and Slitting
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.
Die Cutting
Not all printing projects require a nice, straight cut along the edge of the page. Some need curved cuts, odd-shaped cuts, fancy cuts, or internal cuts. When your design calls for a specialty cut, call on the experts at our print shop.

Our bindery department can handle any cutting need. With access to state-of-the-art die-cutting equipment, we’ll work hard to ensure the perfect cut every time. Choose from hundreds of specialty dies, or have one custom-made to your unique specifications. Call for details.

Our die-cutting services are great for:

Table tents
Door hangers
Die-cut postcards
Rounded corners
Keyhole cuts
And more
Foil Stamping
Looking for a unique and classy way to spice up your printing? Consider adding a foil-stamped line, logo, or other design element to the page. Use foil stamping to dress up your stationery, letterhead, business cards, booklet covers, report covers, presentation folders, and specialty print jobs.

Our commercial-quality foil stamping equipment uses heat to apply a thin layer of metal foil to a printed sheet of paper. Gold, silver, and a variety of other colors are available. We can help you choose the right foil or combination of foils as well as the right placement on the page to give your piece the perfect feel.

Big Color Posters
When you have an important event to announce, or simply need to make a big, bold statement, why not use a big color poster?

We print the standard size corkboard 11x17" big color posters. This size is the most popular big poster because it can be the dominant piece on most corkboard displays without totally overpowering other items on display. One-, two-, and four-color printing is available, along with a wide selection of colorful papers.

Another option is to use our commercial big color jumbo ink-jet printer. It will print posters 24" and 36" wide in any length. Stop in and visit to discuss specific capabilities and see some samples.

Black and white digital printing is one of our specialities.

We have the capabilities to produce big copy jobs very quickly. Our commercial-quality, high-speed copy equipment provides high-quality images at a surprisingly low cost!

When you need fast, inexpensive copies of higher quality than you can get on your office copy machines, give us a call. We're ready to help!
Blueprint Copies
If you need copies of your architectural and engineering blueprints made, we’re the printer to call. We service a number of the area’s leading architectural firms and can reproduce your blueprints quickly and accurately, at full size or scaled down, whichever you prefer.
Brochures
Every product you sell needs a brochure. It's one of those Business 101 things. Through the years we've probably printed several million brochures, and while that doesn't automatically make us an expert, it sure doesn't hurt. We know what papers to suggest to create a quality look or a discount price special brochure. If you plan on mailing your brochure, we can recommend a paper that will stand up to the potential damage done during the mailing process.

Our design team can also listen to your concepts and ideas, and help you create an attention-grabbing promotion piece. We can then print a beautiful one-, two-, or four-color brochure to our exacting quality standards.
Business Cards
We can design and print business cards that reflect your corporate identity. On the most basic level, we print basic black on white paper.

We'll give your calendar a professional look that will help you feel proud to display it at home or in the office. Stop in today and let us help you get started on your customized calendar.
Carbonless Forms
We specialize in printing carbonless forms, in two to five parts. Although carbonless forms are most often printed in black ink, we suggest you consider two-color printing. The difference a second color can add to your forms can be dramatic. Why not spice up your office a little bit?

We also offer the following services commonly used in conjunction with carbonless forms:

Numbering
Perforating
Shrink-wrapping (suggested to keep forms fresher)
Color Digital Printing
When your business needs a fast, low-cost alternative to full-color process printed materials, why not consider color digital printing?

Use our color digital printing services when:


You need quantities of 500 or less.

Door Hangers
We’ve all seen them, but have we all realized the great marketing tool they are? Door hangers are a unique way to catch the eyes of prospective customers in a place where they are not expecting it. And, because door hangers must be physically removed from the doorknob, they are more likely to be read and make an impression that lasts beyond a mere glance.

Door hangers are inexpensive to produce and offer a wide range of possibilities in terms of design, color choice, and paper-stock.

Door hangers make it easy to target a specific audience or neighborhood that will benefit from the product or service you are advertising.

Door hangers are a great way to distribute coupons and simply raise awareness about your company.

When you sit down to develop your next marketing campaign, don’t overlook the effectiveness of door hangers. The staff at our print shop is eager to help you utilize this innovative marketing tool.
Envelopes
We can design and print many, many different sizes and shapes of envelopes. These can range in format from the most basic black on a regular #10 business envelope to complex designer envelopes, featuring full-color images.
Flyers
Did you know that flyers were among the earliest printed pieces ever produced? Called broadsides, these single-sided sheets were used primarily for advertising and political purposes.

While the technology behind them has changed, flyers remain as popular as ever in today’s business world. They’re easy to produce, easy to distribute, and, most importantly, easy to scan and read.

We design and print sales flyers in a variety of sizes, shapes, and stocks of paper, with one, two, or multiple colors of ink. So the next time you need help producing a flyer, give us a call.

Raised Printing
Take your printed material to the third dimension...literally. Raised printing on a flat piece of paper gives your printed projects depth and touchability. (After all, who can resist running their fingers across a raised image.) Raised printing, or thermography, can be used to enhance printed materials such as:
Business stationery and letterhead
Business cards
Presentation and report covers
Brochures
Invitations

Announcements
When you consider the bright colors and visual effects that can be used, the durability of the product, and the fast turn-around time, it is easy to see that raised printing is a cost-effective way to add an eye-catching, professional flair to your printed projects.
Reports
You've spent countless hours researching, writing, and preparing your report. Now, let us put our time into making it look as good as it sounds.

Whether you need it copied or printed, in one color or full color, we can handle it! We can even collate the pages, insert custom index tabs, and spiral, comb, velo, tape, or wire bind it for you.
Rubber Stamps
Give your hand a break!

If you find yourself writing the same thing over and over again, you can save time, money, and your hand by using a rubber stamp!

Rubber stamps are generally available in two different varieties: self-inking or the traditional handle mount.

Self-inking stamps are perfect for stamping large quantities of documents, such as bank endorsements, signatures, addresses, or inspections. Because self-inking stamps have a built-in inkpad that automatically inks the stamp die after each impression, you can conveniently make thousands of repetitive impressions without re-inking.

However, if your stamp usage is low, or you prefer to use multiple ink colors, a traditional handle-mount rubber stamp is a cost-effective alternative to self-inking stamps.

No matter which type of rubber stamp you prefer, this convenient solution is sure to earn your stamp of approval!
Table Tents
If you’re looking for a great way to get your message out, maybe you should lay it on the table!

Table tents are an unobtrusive, yet very effective way to spread the word about new products and services, upcoming events, or simply increase awareness about your business. And because they are flexible in a variety of shapes, sizes, designs, die-cuts, colors, and paper stocks, table tents offer the perfect creative solution to your marketing challenges.
Transparencies
Visual aids add life to any presentation and help to reinforce the message you're delivering. We can print—and design—overhead transparencies for your next presentation. Black-and-white or full-color charts, graphs, and photos are no problem, and rush delivery is available.
Two-Color Printing
Want to boost response on your next direct mail piece or grab more attention with your brochure? Consider adding a second color of ink. Studies show that two-color printing is more effective at attracting attention than its one-color counterpart. We have hundreds of ink colors to choose from and can even create a custom-mix for you.
Variable Data Printing
Have you ever received something that you know is bulk mail, but yet you read it because it is personalized with your name? It’s amazing how seeing your name in print can raise the level of curiosity you have about the contents of a mail piece. Your customers and prospects will have the same reaction when they receive a mail piece that has been personalized using variable data printing.

Variable data printing enables you to be more intentional about your marketing strategy by providing a way to personalize any printed piece. However, moving personalized information from a database to paper can be a difficult task, especially when the database is large or complex. We can help.

We would be happy to partner with you in exploring the world of variable data printing. Call our print shop today for more information about how you can incorporate variable data printing into your company’s marketing strategy.

Or, maybe you have a multitude of documents that simply need to be organized, but the thought of sifting through each piece of paper is overwhelming to you.

Situations like these can be resolved using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) scanning. OCR scanning instantly turns your paper documents into a digital format that can be edited, meaning you don’t have to retype your documents, you can just OCR them! Plus, you can store an entire file cabinet of papers on CD or a portable hard drive. Here are more benefits provided by OCR scanning:

Printed text becomes editable text
OCR scanning eliminates manual retyping
OCR scanning reduces the need for storing paper documents

Call us today to find out how you can make OCR scanning work for you.
