Getting All Bound Up in Our Work!

“Bindery” covers the wealth of operations that can occur after your pages are printed. Sheets need to be cut down to size; invoices need to be sequenced; booklets need to be folded and stapled. Presto offers a full range of bindery services, and has the expertise to help you plan your job from the start for lowest bindery costs. For those who are new to the bindery lexicon, here's an introduction to bindery operations:

Cutting, Folding, Drilling, Wrapping

These are the most common bindery operations:
Cutting -
brings your printed stock down to a finished size;
Folding -
single or multiple folds for pamphlets, booklets, inserts, mailers.
Drilling -
‘punches’ holes in your pages, for notebook or ledger use;
Wrapping -
bundles your pages in shrinkwrap film for easier handling.


These are our most popular binding options:
Comb -
This is very handy for small or thin books that need to appear ‘in public’—the attractive plastic spine creates a good first impression with readers.
Ring Binders -
Binders are rugged and versatile; Presto can drill and assemble your pages into ring binders for less than you might think. We can work from your binders, or help you shop for the best ‘binder for your buck.’.
Staple -
Wire staples remain the cost-effective standard for securely binding booklets and other small documents.
Padding -
creates a tear-off pad of leafs, as for note pads, work orders, etc.

Tabbing, Sequencing, & Forms

And of course we support your administrative printing needs:
Tabbing -
is the process of ‘sealing’ a folded document with one or more gummed tabs, as for folded mailings. We will be happy to advise you on your mailing's layout, size, folding, and tabbing for no-hassle bulk mailing.
Sequencing -
imprints a unique number onto each one of your pages, as for work orders, invoices, registration cards, etc.
Multi-part Forms -
we make it easy for your business to generate more-more-more paperwork;).

Other Services

We also offer document collating, scoring, perforating, laminating, and more. If you're not sure just what your needs are, or what makes the best sense for your project, feel free to ask.
