Read on to see how it works.

What is Binding and Finishing?

Once your product is printed, it undergoes binding and finishing. Binding is when the individual sheets are joined together while finishing refers to specialty treatments beyond ink on paper that can be added.

Not every product requires binding and finishing, but they are affordable ways to make your print products look more eye-catching and professional. Whether the print materials will be bound into a folder, brochure, or something else, SmithPrint offers a wide venue of binding and finishing options to choose from.
