Post Press Finishing

The manner in which a print job is bound, folded or finished is a crucial element in its production. At Core Image, we have invested heavily in the latest bindery equipment and experienced operators to ensure the best possible finish for your printed product.


Considered a value-added process, some print finishing techniques will really enhance the finish your printed job. These may include die cutting, foil blocking, embossing, duplexing and spot UV. All of these options will affect both the look and feel of the final print job.

Here is a full list of the finishing services we offer:

Perfect & PUR Binding Saddle Stitching Creasing
Folding Collating Perforating
Die Cutting Kiss Cutting Numbering & Drilling
Laminating (gloss, matt, silk and soft touch) Spot UV Varnishing Singer Sewing

Our latest investment in a Horizon StitchLiner 5500 booklet production line delivers the best in quality, reliability and speed. From flat printed sheets, the Horizon StitchLiner can collate, crease, fold, saddle stitch and three-knife-trim all in one production cycle to give the perfect looking booklet.

The final stage in our finishing department ensures that your printed job is packaged perfectly, ready for delivery. We can sort, box and bundle bulk jobs as required with plastic wrapping and labelling. All of our boxes are double-walled to help protect the print content inside and we dispatch UK-wide daily for next day delivery.
