Custom Finishing and Binding

You are here


Go too far and the whole look is ruined. Stay this side of simplicity and you are in danger of being forgotten in a minute. The right accent, however, makes everything fall into place and ends with sheer perfection. It’s often the finishing and binding elements that make the difference between a good and a great end print product. Design Printing will help you choose the finishing and binding techniques that not only help your company function more efficiently, but also have the greatest impact on your customers.

Custom Finishing and Binding Printing Alternatives


All your work is unique; Design Printing offers you many customized options to bring your design to life.

Die cutting allows you to create custom shapes, windows and borders.
Foil stamping adds luster and shine with gold, silver or other colored metallics.
Embossing adds dimension and depth to your paper.
Spot or overall UV coatings enhance the look and shine of your piece.
Shrink wrap and sequential numbering services for invoices, admission tickets and other transactions.
Paper scoring to indicate fold lines and perforation finsihes for a quick, clean tear on materials like coupons, note pads and tickets.

Binding and Custom Finishing Options


Design Printing features several binding options including spiral and wire-O (wire binding), saddle stitching (where the pages of smaller booklets are stapled together along the spine) and perfect binding (which works best for book-style documents where desired materials are bound as a paperback book). We also offer die cut services; paper scoring to indicate fold lines and perf (or perforation) finishes which allow for a quick, clean tear on tickets, coupons and note pads; and shrink wrap and sequential numbering services (for invoices, admission tickets and other transactions).
