About Printing


Relating to typesetting, page layout, and other work done on a publication before it is actually printed.

Web Press

A web press is an offset printing press that is fed from huge rolls of paper. As the paper unwinds from the roll, it forms a continuous “web” through the press. This web of paper is held taught by a series of rollers, which move the paper through the press.

Sheet Fed Press

Sheet-fed presses print on coated and uncoated paper and cardstock. The press may consist of one unit capable of printing only one color ink at a time, but large sheet-fed presses may have six or more print units that each print a different color of ink on the sheet of paper all in one pass of the press.

eEdition / Page Flipper

We can convert your print publication into a digital magazine to increase your distribution at a fraction of the cost. Some of the features include.

Saddle Stitching

The saddle stitch binding technique takes full sheets of paper, stapled together in the center. Then the book, including the cover, is folded in half along the line of the staple. This is definitely a cost-effective binding method because no glue is used.

Perfect Binding

With this binding method, the pages and cover are glued together at the spine with a strong yet flexible thermal glue. The other three sides of the book are then trimmed as needed to give them clean “perfect” edges.

Spiral Binding

A book or notebook binding in which a continuous spiral wire or plastic strip is passed through holes along one edge.



One or more printed pages which are placed into a separately printed publication. Inserts are commonly used for advertising in magazines and newspapers.


Collate printing is the action of taking multiple different printed pages and putting them together into a complete set. Collating is most common with color copies, as the copies can be collated without being bound together.


Folding is a procedure that is commonly done after printing and cutting. It is achieved using special devices called folders, which folds the material either off-line or in-line, depending on the preset and design plan

Sticky Note

Sticky Note is a small piece of paper with a re-adherable strip of glue on its back, made for temporarily attaching notes to documents and other surfaces. A low-tack pressure-sensitive adhesive allows the notes to be easily attached, removed and even re-posted elsewhere without leaving residue.

Co-Mail / Co-Mingle Mail

Co-mingling or mailing is the process of combining. different catalog titles into one mail stream in order. to generate more carrier route discount mail.
