|Saddle Stitching||Saddle stitching is a type of binding method which stitches pages together with a metal wire. Although there are many parts to the saddle-stitch binding process, it is a popular finishing method for booklets, catalogs and magazines due to its economic design.|
|Perfect Binding||Perfect binding applies an adhesive to the spine of collected pages. When the adhesive dries it forms a secure bond. Perfect binding is commonly used for binding paperback novels, telephone directories, catalogs and magazines. Perfect binding is very durable and cost-effective when compared to other binding options.|
|Plastic Coil Binding||Coil binding is often referred to as spiral binding or coil bind and is a type of binding method used for a variety of business needs. From documents and reports to proposals and presentations, coil binding offers versatility and durability with the utmost professional look. Coils are also used for their flexibility with the ability to open the bound document completely flat and rotate the pages 360 degrees.|
|Collating||The collating process efficiently assembles your printed materials in their correct sequence thus producing an absolute finished product. Collating is commonly performed when printing manuals, catalogs or any other product involving multiple pages.|
|UV Coating||UV coating is a finishing method which applies a shiny coating to the surface of a printed piece and is cured with an ultraviolet light. UV coating not only offers a high clarity and quality appearance, it resists wear and tear. This type of finish is popular for business cards, postcards, direct mailers and presentation materials where excessive handling is necessary.|
|Folding||Our folding services allow you to receive completely finished printed materials at Ries Graphics for an efficient and cost-effective printing solution. Folding services are commonly used for brochures and pamphlets and can be folded per your request.|
|Drilling||Drilling is the correct term used for “3-hole punched”. Hardened steel coated drill bits are used to create the holes while limiting friction. The drilling finishing method is frequently used for calendars.|
|Shrink Wrapping||Receive retail ready shrink wrapping services at Ries Graphics. Shrink wrap protects your finished products against damage while sorting your product in your desired bundles for easy distribution. Not only does shrink wrapping provide protection, it also serves as an appealing packaging solution for consumer product markets.|

|Scoring||Scoring is often used for mailers, manuals, soft-covered books and postcards. The scoring process creates a channel in your printed piece where the designated fold will lie. This process makes for a cleaner fold preventing cracking along the folded edge.|
