Finishing services

Plastic Encapsulation, Wire & Thermal binding plus lots more.

An essential part of any printing process and in some cases the most important is finishing, whether you require laminating, wire or thermal binding, lever arch folders, box files, presentation ring binders, tab dividers, hole punching, stapling, folding, labelling or trimming we can help. If you are unable to find the printing service or product you require on our website just give us a call or use the ‘Contact us’ link to send us an email.

We have plenty of samples showing our finishing in store, options for binding include front and back coverings, and a choice of colour spines. Copy Express has a choice of Black, White, Red and Blue card coverings, plus Clear and Opaque acetate options. In general the card choices are placed on the back and the acetates are used on the front of your document, but we are more than happy to let you decide. Our maximum binding size is 230 pages but we can always split your document into more than one volume if you agree. Copy Express can bind on the long side of A3 too, the maximum pages for this service is 95.

We have a choice of Black, Blue and Silver for our wire bindings and Black, Blue, Red and White spines with our thermal bindings. Please see our order page for more details. As well as binding we can laminate (encapsulate) any A-size, up to and including A1 in store. A0 Laminating and larger plus mounting are produced at our specialist print finishers.

In store we also have Stationery Junction, a display of envelopes, post bags, mailing tubes, clip folders, punched plastic pockets, spine bars, A4 press stud poly folders, pens, sticky notes, tapes and much more for you to purchase, plus we can also order anything from our suppliers catalogue for you too, they normally take 1-2 days to deliver to us.
