Finishing and binding

Printed sheets obtain their final form and appearance in the Finishing and Binding Department, where several finishing processes (cutting, folding, gathering) prepare them for binding. The type of binding to be chosen depends on the type and purpose of the product and its wide range of options – from gathered products, spiral and soft cover binding, to hardcovers of the highest quality for books with long-term use and frequent turning of pages. Lamination, embossing, hot foil stamping and other various finishing processes are solutions that will not only give a memorable appearance to covers and jackets, but also add a special touch and a distinctive effect. We can insert and glue various supplements or advertising product samples onto products, foil wrap the products, as well as personalize and address them. Thanks to our long-standing experience, we are able to fulfil any specific requirement, and we will be more than glad to help you choose an optimum solution.
