Post-processing

Giving the final touch to your product with post-processing.

Post-processing is the final stage of manufacturing a printed product, which is highly important as it gives the product its final shape and apperance. Post-processing of your product can give it character and originality. Using different post-processing methods, you can change the features and functions of your printed product to exactly what you require.

Our primary post-processing methods are:

  • Die cutting – used to create printed products with non-standard shapes.
  • Scoring – used to create indented scoring lines which result in easily foldable products.
  • Folding – folding improve both the appearance and the ease of use of a product.
  • Trimming – trimming is used to ensure smooth and uniform edges to a product.
  • Drilling – holes are drilled to allow for binding or hanging of the product.
  • Gluing – stacks of individual sheets have a layer of glue applied to one end, joining them in a block. These blocks can additionally be glued onto covers or base sheets.
  • Perforation – perforating changes part of the product to be easily removable by tearing. It is possible to add multiple directions of perforation to a sheet.
  • Numbering – numbering saves time and avoids mistakes in data entry. Products can be numbered both sequentially, as well as completely randomly (reference numbers, for instance).
  • Stapling – sheets of paper are joined with a metal staple.
  • Binding:
    • Perfect binding – individual pages are glue-bound into a cover, forming a book.
    • Saddle stitching – the pages of a brochure are attached with staples on the fold line.
    • Wire binding – it’s possible to choose the colour of the wire according to your preference.
