Saddlestitch BindingAfter printing, bindery and finishing bring the entire product together to form a more professional looking printed material. Bindery and Finishing can be used with digital or offset printed products. Preferred Direct can also provide fulfillment services for your bindery & finishing printed materials from beginning to end.

Bindery refers to binding or fastening individual sheets together to form a cohesive product such as book binding. Finishing includes any type of decorative element added to the printed product. Types of bindery and finishing include:
