Saving the Best for Last: What Happens in the Bindery

There is one department in our printing company that you don’t often hear about – our bindery.

The bindery is where we take printed sheets to finish the job – cutting, folding, gathering, and stitching the press sheets into booklets; applying glue to make pads or bind the parts of a carbonless form; collating press sheets into sets; perforating tickets; numbering invoices; scoring invitations or program covers so they will fold without cracking; drilling three holes in sheets or in completed manuals or one hole in a clothing hang tag; or any other function required to get the press sheets into final form for delivery to you.

Our bindery is also where we do a final quality control check before packaging the finished job and printing the delivery receipt.
