Finishing Services 

mechanical bindingPlastic coil 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, this type of binding is able to open flat on the desk or table and provide 360° rotation for easier note-taking. Durable and strong, this binding method is safe for mailed documents. Curry offers spiral-coil-bound spines in different colors and sizes.

Plastic comb binding is a cost-effective way to secure pages into a book. This method utilizes 19 rings, with plastic spines. Comb binding, often referred to as spiral-comb binding, has a large variety of sizes and colors to enhance the appearance of your book or manual.

Wire binding, another popular mechanical bookbinding method is also known as spiral notebook binding, twin loop wire, wire-o, and double loop wire. Wire-bound materials can look extremely professional and crisp.

Perfect binding looks similar to the binding of a paperback book. At Curry, we get many requests to bind software manuals, instruction manuals, and other 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 finished.

Stapling is one of the simplest – and most cost-effective – methods of binding we offer. 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 sturdy.

Collating Finishing Collating is the process of gathering individual sheets and/or other elements of your printing project and assembling those elements into a finished 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.

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.

Cutting FinishingCurry has very sophisticated, computerized, and large digital paper cutters that are extremely fast and accurate.

Our commercial-grade 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 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 can prolong the life of your printed projects.

Laminating:Laminating Finishing

  • Enables your projects to withstand moisture
  • Increases durability
  • Preserves colors
  • Protects your projects from fingerprints, abrasions, and smudges.

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.

Finishing Print Services 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.

Shrink Wrapping Print Services

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.

Die Cut printing ServicesSome 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:

  • Table tents

  • Door hangers

  • Die-cut postcards

  • Rounded corners

  • Keyhole cuts

Print Services Foil StampingHave 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.

Want your postcards, business cards and brochures to POP? Try using UV coating! This is one of our favorite specialty finishing services and is a unique coating that will not only help your full color images really stand out, it will help protect your pieces and help them have a much longer shelf life, saving you cost! UV coating is relatively inexpensive, so why not let us help you with your next project that needs a POP of color?

Mailing Services

Curry’s mail presorting services save you money on postage and decrease mail delivery time.

Because we are doing the work “for” USPS, presorted mail is faster and easier for the USPS to process. The Postal Service charges us, and you, less postage. Whether it’s first-class or standard mail, we secure low postage rates.

When your mailing is completed, you are welcome to pick it up at Curry’s office, or we can take it directly to the post office for you, saving you the hassle. We are experts at completing the complicated and confusing USPS paperwork, and we have a ton of experience working with the bulk mail departments at the post office. We strongly suggest you allow us to work with the post office on your behalf. We can save you a lot of time and likely frustration. Allow us to handle your mailing project from concept to post office delivery. Curry offers a smooth, one-step process that saves you time, money, and stress.

Personalization plays a key role in your direct mail marketing campaigns success. After we print your mailer, we can personalize it for you as we address it, all in one easy step.

Curry can do address labels, barcodes and live stamps. Our equipment can print on just about any surface, including coated papers designed to withstand the brutality of automated Postal Service sorting equipment. Let Curry Printing handle all facets of your mailing job.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) offers significant discounts for volume business mailings as well as nonprofit organizations. These discounts apply to many types of business mail and can reduce the cost of postage.

When you work with Curry, a mailing services specialist, often you can be sure we’ll help get the best possible rates given your time deadlines.

Unlike standalone mailing houses, Curry is unique because we have the ability to take your mailing piece from design all the way through delivery to the post office. Does it make sense to have your mailing project designed at one place, printed somewhere else, and then mailed at a third place? Curry can save you significant time and bother when you let us manage the entire print and mail process.

To learn more about postage discounts and designing an effective mailer, visit the USPS’s helpful Business Mail 101 resource page.

Tabs, (we at Curry call them wafer seals), are often a USPS requirement that should be applied to all self-mailers. Wafer seals prevent the open sides of your mailer from jamming the Postal Service’s high-speed processing equipment. Our mailing department can apply one, two, or three tab seals easily as part of our mail processing capabilities. Choose clear plastic, paper, or customized tabs to set your design apart.
