Finishing & Bindery Solutions
Working with paper is truly a skilled craft. Fortunately, The Messenger Press has experienced, skilled teammates who understand the ins and outs of bindery and finishing work. A beautifully printed piece can be ruined by a crooked cut, improper scoring or folding techniques, or simply not taking into account factors such as paper grain or the printed process (i.e. Offset vs Digital printing). These are just a few examples of the endless factors that go into how a finished product turns out.
Having the right tool for the job helps too! Our complete line of bindery equipment pairs our skilled labor with the latest in finishing capabilities. From cutting, folding, saddle-stitching, perforating, scoring, die-cutting, gluing, collating, stapling, numbering, drilling, mounting, tabbing, binding (comb, spiral, Wire-O, and perfect), shrink wrapping, padding and laminating – you name it – we will make sure your printed item turns out great!
Need a special shape or die-cut? We have more than 150 existing dies on hand and are able to custom-make dies by request. Most projects we encountered, such as folders and door hangers, can utilize one of our existing inhouse dies which can minimize production costs. However, if you require a custom die, we are more than happy to accommodate to your exact specifications.
Additionally, we offer specialized miniature/pharmaceutical folds for both external clients and the trade. For the trade, we can blind drop ship directly to your customer under your company’s name. And our perfecting offset press is ideally suited to print these types of inserts since many are 1/1 or 4/1 – providing a true one-stop option to economically produce these types of jobs.
So don’t worry! We will expertly finish your project to our exacting standards.
