We can produce three-ring binders customized for your corporation, client or project. Or, we can simply insert covers and spines.
Comb binding is one of many ways to bind pages together into a book. This method uses round plastic spines with 19 rings and a hole puncher that makes rectangular holes. Comb binding is sometimes referred to as plastic comb binding.
What is Creasing? Creasing is a process that prepares the paper for folding by creating two parallel folding points. It is recognizable by the bead created on the inside of the fold.
Why Creasing? Many folding jobs are susceptible to cracking. Digitally-printed products stand an even greater risk of cracking at the fold because the process involves heating the sheets to fuse toner to paper, which tends to dry the paper out. Dry paper is more likely to crack.
Our bindery professionals are experts at operating our state-of-the-art cutting machines. We frequently save our clients money by printing or duplicating multi-up on a page and cutting them down.
We can hand- or machine-fold your documents in a number of formats, some of the standard paper folds that we do every day here at Minuteman Press Crystal Lake include:
Gate fold - open

We can print in one-, two-, three-, and full-color on a variety of paper sizes and stocks, including cardstock and all sizes of envelopes.
