  • Finishing Options

    Booklets and Books Finishing Options

    There are a number of finishing options you can use to make your booklet or book stand out.  Why not give it that extra special look and feel with the following popular options.

    A UV Varnish is a liquid coating that is applied to the surface of a sheet which is then dried/cured under an ultra violet light. This has the effect of highlighting and drawing attention to parts of the design, but it also provides the additional visual stimulus of having varied textures on a single printed surface.

    MetalFX is a process of mixing metallic silver with a variety of process colours to give the desired effect. The process gives a metallic lustre to the printed image.

    Lamination adds a layer of protective coating either gloss or matt to the printed piece. Lamination improves the sturdiness of the piece as well as giving it a level of water resistance. If a gloss laminate is applied to the printed surface, photos and images appear to have more shine and brightness. Matt laminated prints are more subdued but add an elegant finish to the printed surface.

    Die Cutting is a unique feature that can make your printed piece stand out. Die cutting is a process used to cut paper into a specific shapes using a steel cutting die.  Die Cut shapes are endless and gives a printed piece a noticeable and eye-catching finish.

    Embossing and Debossing are the processes of creating either raised or recessed relief images and designs in paper and other materials. An embossed pattern is raised against the background, while a debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material (but might protrude somewhat on the reverse side).

    Aqueous Coating is a fast-drying, water-based, protective coating which is applied while the paper stock is on the press to achieve a finish that exceeds the quality of a varnish. This water-based finish dries quickly and is resistant to smudges and fingerprints.

    Foiling is the application of metallic or pigmented foil onto a solid surface by application of a heated die onto foil, making it permanently adhere to the surface The foil stamp is a permanent process. Foils come in a wide selection of colours and finishes, from the most commonly used metallic gold and silver to foils with pearlescent and holographic effects.

    Booklet and Book Binding Options

    Saddle Stitching

    A professional yet cost effective option, saddle stitched books and booklets have been stapled through the folded line of gathered sheets of paper with sturdy wire staples. Depending on the size of the book, two or more staples are passed through and clinched on the central pages. 

    We recommend choosing saddle stitching for documents with less than 64 pages, to make sure they don’t become too bulky. Our team of graphic designers will make sure to use sufficient margins on your pages, so that the finished product is easy to read and looks professional.

    Perfect Binding

    As the names suggests, this binding technique will make sure your printed product looks picture perfect. We use a flexible and robust thermal glue on the spine to marry the cover and pages together, before trimming all the edges of the book. 

    For documents that are page heavy (more than 24 pages), perfect binding is the ideal option. Unlike our other binding techniques, printing can be done on the spine of the book to include titles and logos, and the clean, flat edges allow for neat stacking. Perfect binding is a professional and attractive option for books with a heavier, laminated cover.

    Side Sewing

    As the name implies, side sewing is a method of binding that uses thread, close to the spine, to sew a book together. This technique produces an incredibly strong book. Side sewing is best used for thinner books. The attractive stitch pattern is becoming increasingly popular as a design element for fashion and food catalogues and booklets.
