Plastic coil binding, sometimes called spiral binding, is a commonly used mechanical binding style for creating
documents, reports, presentations, and proposals. Known variously as spiral coil, color coil, ez-coil, plastic coil, spiral binding, plastikoil and coilbind, documents bound with this way have the ability to open flat on the desk or table and offer 360° rotation for easier note-taking. Durable and strong, this binding method is can be used for
mailed documents. Curry offers spiral-coil-bound spines in many colors and sizes.
Plastic comb binding is another way to secure pages into a book. This method utilizes round plastic spines, 19 rings,
and a hole puncher that makes matching holes. Comb binding sometimes referred to as spiral-comb binding, has a large variety of different-sized combs and comes in a variety of different colors to enhance the appearance of your book or manual.
Wire binding, another popular commercial bookbinding is also known by a number of different names, including spiral notebook binding, twin loop wire, wire-o, and double loop wire. Wire-bound materials can look extremely creative when a colorful wire is used.
Perfect binding provides a result similar to that of a paperback book. At Curry, we get many requests to bind software manuals, instruction manuals, and many varieties of soft-covered books using perfect binding. We print the heavy-duty covers separately and attach them at the spine with a strong, flexible glue. We then trim the books on three sides to make them look clean and professional.
Stapling is one of the simplest – and most cost effective – methods of binding available. In addition to stapling loose sheets together through the front of the page, we can saddle-stitch (staple through the spine) magazines and other multi-page items such as catalogs, annual reports, and newsletters. Saddle-stitching is a sturdy, durable, and attractive binding option. The number of pages our saddle-stitching equipment can bind together varies depending on the weight of the paper used, but the results are the same every time: nice, clean, and professional.
Collating is the process of gathering individual sheets and other elements of your printing project and assembling those elements into a final product.
Copiers can collate automatically, but did you know that we can quickly and efficiently collate other items, too? Our high-speed collating equipment can bring together all the elements of your project, saving you the time it would take to hand-collate the project. The next time you have a big project that requires collating, keep us in mind – we make it so easy, you’ll never want to hand-collate again.
Many carbonless forms and invoices require sequential numbering. Numbering is an inexpensive and effective way to maintain accurate records and improve organization.
We can number a variety of papers and sheet sizes. Choose from black or red ink, as well as descending or ascending numbers on most printed projects.
When you need high-speed folding, you’ve come to the right place. Curry’s bindery/finishing department provides dozens of different options for folding. Our super fast folders can fold at speeds exceeding 5,000 sheets per hour. If a standard fold isn’t what you are looking for, we also offer several hand-folding options for more unique folding jobs.
Curry has very sophisticated, computerized, and large digital paper cutters that are extremely fast and accurate.
Our commercial-grade paper cutters feature high-pressure hydraulic clamps to prevent paper shifting and razor-sharp carbon steel blades to guarantee the most precise cuts.
Perforating a printed piece can make an easy-to-remove response card, coupon, or customer feedback form.
Curry’s wide variety of perforating blades gives you flexibility when designing pieces that need to separate easily. We can also design pieces that can stand up to the challenges of post office mailing equipment without coming apart.
Our highly trained and knowledgeable staff will happily offer suggestions and solutions for all of your perforating needs.
At Curry, we help you prolong the life of your printed projects.
- Enables your projects to withstand moisture

Laminating also has the power to revolutionize your presentations by allowing for hassle-free display of your documents under many conditions. Plus, the glossy finish really makes your piece pop.
It may sound strange, but here at Curry, we’re experts at drilling holes. We have powerful hydraulic paper drilling machines feature many different sizes of drill bits and enable us to position the hole just about anywhere on the sheet of paper. Fun Fact: allow 1/2 an inch of extra margin for three-hole drilling along the side of your sheets of paper.
At Curry, we use high-quality shrink wrap materials to provide you with a secure and attractive method of storing quantities of printed materials. Our process uses semi-automatic equipment to meet demands while ensuring the best quality.
From simple, one-page letters in an envelope to multi-piece marketing kits, Curry Printing can put it all together for you fast and accurately. While our high-speed automatic inserters allow us to handle very large projects, we’ve also perfected an accurate and fast method of hand insertion for those projects which are not machinable.
Embossing involves pressing paper between specially-cast metal dies attached to a letterpress. The result is a raised impression on the page that matches the design of the die.
Debossing works the same as embossing, except the surface of the page is recessed, rather than raised. This process involves the same type of die and also takes place on a letterpress.
Debossing and embossing can be used as distinctive touches for “showpieces” such as announcements, invitations, business cards, and stationery. Additionally, they can be used in brochures, annual reports, and any other printed piece you want to “pop.”
These special dies can range from very simple shapes with flat, smooth surfaces all the way to more intricate creations with contours, depth, and elaborate detail. The result always is a crisp, elegant effect that looks great on any printed piece.
Some printing projects require a nice, straight cut along the edge of the page, while others need special finishing services like curved cuts, odd-shaped cuts, fancy cuts, or internal cuts. When your design calls for a specialty or unusual cut, call on the experts at Curry Printing.
We can handle any cutting need. With access to state-of-the-art die-cutting equipment, we’ll work hard to ensure the perfect cut every time. You can choose from hundreds of specialty dies, or have one custom-made to your own specifications.
Ideas for die-cutting services:
Have you been looking for a unique and shiny way to spice up your printing? Consider adding a foil-stamped line, logo, or other design element to your printed page. Use foil stamping to spiff up your stationery, letterhead, business cards, booklet covers, report covers, and presentation folders.
Our foil stamping equipment uses heat to apply a thin layer of metal foil to a sheet of paper. Gold, silver, and a variety of other colors are available. Let the experts at Curry help you choose the right foil or combination of foils, as well as the right placement on the page, to give your piece the perfect look and feel.
