Comb bind is a type of binding where holes are punched into the bound side and a large plastic piece (comb) or coil (thin plastic wire) is inserted in the holes to keep the document together. This type of binding is usually used for work manuals, presentations and other important work documents. Comb binding is mainly used on full pages sheets (8.5x11) and a clear plastic front cover and black plastic backs are use to give it more stability.
Saddle stitching is when the booklet is stapled in the middle of the finished product to keep the material together. When using the saddle stitch method, you mush set your artwork in sets of 4, so 4,8,12,16 etc. (if you are short pages, blank ones have to be inserted). We can do this method for multiple sizes, but the most common is 5.5x8.5 finished size (8.5x11 folded in half) and 8.5x11 finshed size (11x17 folded in half).
Wire binding is similar to comb binding, except that a thinner wire coil is used. The usual size for these are 8.5x11 with the binding on the 11 side, but we can do many different sizes and bind on most side.
Perfect binding is when the spine is glued to a wrap around cover and the binding is concealed (this would be like a paperback book). We can do any size for these books and you only need to set it in even pages.

With our folding machines able to fold most sizes, it becomes an easy way to have your printed products ready to hand to your customers. We can hand- or machine-fold your documents in a number of formats, including double parallel, tri-folds and z-folds. When folding is required on heavier stocks, scoring ensures that the fold will be clean and not damage the printed image. Scoring is making a crease in the paper so it will fold easily.
Scoring makes a brochure look professional and gives folds a clean, smooth look. Some papers will crack if not scored. Brochures with heavy color coverage can get cracks in the color at the fold if not scored. Scoring is important if you want a professional, beautiful brochure. We always include scoring in the cost of a brochure unless it is a budget brochure on light weight paper that has no risk of cracking at the fold.
