Frequently Asked Questions

Coil binding is ideal for projects that need to look professional, lay flat when open, and have a longer shelf life. Perfect binding is a soft-cover binding that is considered permanent, meaning you can’t make changes once the book is bound. It also doesn’t lay flat like coil binding when open. Talk to our print experts to learn more and determine what binding option is best for your project.

Our most popular finishing options are done for visual or practical appeal. Embellishments spray a clear coating with raised texture or patterns for a tactile piece that stands out from the competition and gives your project a professional finished look. Die cutting, embossing & stamping add visual appeal to prints, raising the over quality and style. Laminating and special coatings help keep your piece clean and enhance the longevity if used in a high-touch environment. Perforating is often used in professional documents, bills, or forms. Contact our print experts to explore all options and what’s best for you.
