We offer complete binding and specialty folding.

Binding and folder capabilities include


  • Saddle Stitch – The most common type of binding, saddle stitching is when folded sheets are gathered together, one inside of another, and stitched on the fold line with wire staples.
  • Loop Stitch – Loop stitching is a staple or wire stitching binding method where the wire is stitched through the document as normal but with extra protruding loops of wire on the spine to enable the document to be bound in a ring binder or later threaded together.


  • Miniature and pharmaceutical folding
  • Z-folds – A document folding method that uses two parallel folds to create six panels of equal size – three panels on each side of the paper. The two folds are made in opposite directions, which forms a shape that resembles the letter Z. The Z-fold method is commonly used for letters, flyers and brochures.
  • Cross-Fold – A cross fold is also known as a right angle fold. It is made by folding paper twice: first in one direction and then, on a second pass, from the side.  Maps and printed instructions often use cross folds.
  • Traditional signature folding – The name given to a printed sheet after it has been folded.  Commonly signatures are bound together to create books, newsletters or magazines.
  • Knife folding – a type of folder that applies a heavy “arm” on the last folding pass.
  • Gate folding – a folding method that uses two parallel folds to create six panels – three panels on each side of the paper. The left and right panels are roughly half the width of the center panels and fold inward to meet in the middle without overlapping. Often used for brochures.
  • Slit and perforated folding – processing method that can slit, cut and perforate in one pass.  Used for business cards, tickets, coupons, etc.

Precision Cutting

  • Precision Cutting – paper cutting with precise and accurate cuts for finishing print products or preparing for folding.


  • Padding – Applies glue to the back of a stack of paper allowing the stack to be bound and then later be used for as notepads, etc.


  • Perforating –Lines of very small holes punched into the paper. This perforation allows parts of the sheet to be separated simply by folding and tearing along the dotted line. Used for tickets, tear-offs, business reply, coupons, etc.


  • Scoring – A applied crease in the paper.  Used to make folding easier and create a sharper fold without the paper tearing.  Used primarily on covers and folded brochures on heavier stocks.


  • Tabbing – Small, wafer tabs seal direct mail pieces and inserts to neatly keep the product closed during mailing and packaging.

Custom Hand Work

  • Custom hand work – Defined as any work needed to be finished by hand to complete a project.
