Binding and Trimming Services on Pre-Printed Sheets

Binding and Trimming Services on Pre-Printed Sheets

Does Nonstop Printing provide binding and trimming services on sheets that are already printed?

At this time we do not provide trimming and binding services on pre-printed sheets.

Why doesn't Nonstop Printing support trimming/binding on preprinted sheets?

We like to be transparent about our decisions so here are a couple of reasons we typically do not take these projects on.:

  • We don't know what type of artwork we need to navigate to complete the bind. We believe solid binding starts with investigating the initial artwork.
  • We cannot assume any liability of there is any mistakes with binding. It takes just one incorrect cut to ruin an entire project.
  • When we produce print and bind projects, we typically print an extra copy or two to make sure we have a great quality final product. 
  • some printing methods cause long term machine problems due to printing methods that are not compatible with our machines.

Where can I go to trim or bind my project?

For easy projects, we suggest just googling or yelping local print shops and just ask if they are open to just binding your project.

For premium binding we recommend the following companies:

  • Stephanie Gibbs Bookbinding in Hollywood
  • Kater Crafts Bookbinding in Pico Rivera
  • A1 Bookbinding in Downtown LA

Here's our recommended vendor list which has our recommendations for all sorts of products and services we do not provide.
