Finishing Services

PPR offers many different types of finishing services.  Below is our list.  If you dont see a product or service listed below, please contact us.

Example of a comb bind.
  • Plastic Comb: This binding is very useful if you would like to remove and replace pages later. It is a simple matter to remove the comb, punch and/or change the pages, and then rebind the book.

 

Example of a tape bind. 
  • Tape: The Tape Bind is a quick-and-easy way to bind manuals or course packets in large numbers. The pages are glued into the bind rather than being punched, so the process is considerably faster. Thinner books can even be bound inside the copier as it runs.
Example of a coil bind. 
  • Coil: The Coil Bind is a true spiral binding. It's sleek and secure, with 33 holes along the binding edge. With a coil bind, you can easily flip the pages around to the back, allowing you to conveniently hold an open book with one hand.
Example of Signature Booklet. 
  • Signature Booklet (saddle-stitch): This is one of the simpler binding methods and can also be performed while the machine is running. For this binding, 11x17 pages are folded in half to 8.5x11 and double stapled along the edge. It's similar to the way magazines are bound. We can also saddle-stitch 8.5 x 11 sheets after they are folded in half to 5.5 x 8.5 inches.
