A bindery is where printed materials come together to become finished products. This includes tasks like folding, stapling, stitching, trimming, and binding books, brochures, magazines, and more. The goal is to turn printed sheets into beautiful, ready-to-use items.

  1. Book Production: After the pages are printed, they go to the bindery, where they are assembled, stitched or glued, and covered to create a complete book.
  2. Brochure Assembly: Printed brochures are folded and stapled or bound together in the bindery, resulting in professional marketing materials.
  3. Magazine Finishing: Magazines are trimmed, stitched, and sometimes perfect-bound in the bindery before they are sent out to subscribers and stores.


  • Quality Control: Make sure your bindery process includes thorough quality checks to catch any issues like misaligned pages or weak binding.
  • Choose the Right Binding Method: Pick the binding method that best suits your project, whether it's saddle stitching, perfect binding, spiral binding, or something else.
  • Plan for Durability: Think about how the finished product will be used to choose a binding method that will stand up to wear and tear.
  • Communication with Printer: Keep in close contact with your printer to ensure the final product meets your expectations and specifications.

A well-run bindery process is key to producing professional, durable printed materials that look great and hold up over time. Contact AP&B for more!
