Finishing Services

Finishing services include signature booklets, binding, cutting and laminating.


The Copy Center offers three binding choices:

Example of a comb bind.

Plastic Comb: This binding is very useful if you would like to remove and replace pages later. It is a simple matter to remove the comb, punch and/or change the pages and then rebind the book.

Example of a coil bind.

Coil: The Coil Bind is a true spiral binding. It's sleek and secure, with 33 holes along the binding edge. With a coil bind, you can easily flip the pages around to the back, allowing you to conveniently hold an open book with one hand.

Example of Signature Booklet.

Signature Booklet (saddle-stitch): This is one of the simpler binding methods and can also be performed while the machine is running. For this binding, 11 x 17 pages are folded in half to 8.5 x 11 and double-stapled along the edge. It's similar to the way magazines are bound. We can also saddle-stitch 8.5 x 11 sheets after they are folded in half to 5.5 x 8.5 inches.

The Copy Center maintains an inventory of plastic combs and coils in black only. If you would like another color, please contact the Copy Center.


The Copy Center can collate your job as requested. Collation can include clear covers, tabs, and various inserts of different color paper.
