We stock various substrates for mounting, including:
Plastic trim can be added to any print on 3/16" foam core or gatorboard. The trim protects the edges from tattering and is very useful for prints that may be moved around a lot. It also gives the print the appearance of having a poster frame, which is a nice, finished touch.
Various colors— including black, gold, silver, brushed silver, and white —are available.

There are a variety of binding methods can can be used for combining separate pages into a finished document. The type of binding may be limited by the paper size and number of pages to be bound.
The images below illustrate some of the more popular binding methods used in the printing industry. If you have questions about these or other binding methods for your project, feel free to contact us.
The most economical binding method, a single staple is used in the corner to attach pages together.
This inexpensive method binds pages using two or more staples placed along a folded edge. Suitable for 60 pages or less, there is no printable spine with this option.
Similar to saddle stitching, except the loops extend out from the spine staples. The loops allow the bound pages to be placed into ring binders.
A round plastic or metal coil is wound through the pages to hold them together. Pages bound this way can be opened 360 degrees and can remain flat when open. Available in black (standard) and other colors, including PMS.
Also known as twin-loop binding or double-loop binding. A wire is threaded through small holes in the edge of the paper. The result is very similar in look and function to coil binding. A variety of colors are available.
This inexpensive method well uses a plastic "comb" that wraps through rectangular holes in the edge of the pages. The plastic comb also forms a spine that covers the edge of the pages.
Metal screw-together posts are inserted into holes drill through the stack of paper. holding them together.
Thin strips of plastic are permanently locked together through holes in the front and back of the pages. Velo-bound pages do not lie flat and have an exposed, unprintable spine. A variety of colors are available.
A strip of tape is applied to the spine of a stack of pages, overlapping the bound edge. The pages are often stitched together before the tape is applied. Limited color range.
Pages are pressed into an adhesive-coated cloth strip that wraps around the spine and covers. Similar to tape binding, the binding is flexible and durable. A variety of cloth colors are available.
A paper cover wraps around the pages and is glued to the spine. The cover forms the front, spine, and back. Popular for paperback and softcover books, this method results in a professional appearance. Suitable for most book types and sizes.
Cover materials can be paper, vinyl, cloth, or leather. A loose, paper dust jacket often is wrapped around the cover to protect it.
