What you should know to get you on the right track.
Even in today’s digital age the value of a professionally bound printed document hasn’t diminished. In fact, in-house binding in small businesses is now easier than ever.
Thinking of buying a binding machine for your office? It could make your life a whole lot simpler!
Some basics before you get started.
What equipment will you need?
- A tool to punch holes to the correct shape and pitch.
- A mechanism that will insert the binding material through the holes.
- A closing mechanism that will close the wire if that is what you are binding with.
What are your binding options?
When binding documents the three most popular methods are as follows:
Twin Wire Binding: The most professional and aesthetically pleasing finish of all the options. Twin Wire is a double loop wire binding solution, which is available in either a 2:1 or 3:1 pitch and a variety of colours.
Plastic Spiral Coil: Made from UV resistant, shatterproof, flexible PVC, this binding solution is available in a wide range of colours and is the most durable of all the binding solutions.
Plastic Binding Combs: Plastic Binding Combs offer a quick and simple solution.
What about protection?
Protecting your documents is crucial for longevity. Consider the following options:
Lamination: Pouch lamination offers a durable solution to protect documents from fading, water damage and tearing.
PVC Binding Covers and Leather Grain Backing Boards: A front and back cover ensure that not only do your documents look professionally finished off but they offer protection against the wear and tear of day to day handling.
