The multipage printing products are bent with the use of special machines, which ensure a precise closure. Different types of folds are available, depending on the type and size of the product.

Print products made with the offset printing method can be valued with the use of a high-quality protective paint. The coating of paint protects the product from wear and from traces of processing, as well as abrasion.

The paper is perforated so that it can be cut or detached clearly. The notches that mark the points of tearing or folding are made by knives with small partial cuts.

Before bending, it is possible to groove the paper. Creasing is essential for very thick papers and cartons, it allows to obtain a precise and clean fold which makes it of high quality (in so doing, for example, chippings of colour are reduced on the edge of the printed page).

Drilling offers products with 1 hole or 2 holes. The holes are made by drilling machines in the printed sheets. These are used, for example, to easily store documents. 

For punching paper and cardboard, uses different types of moulds. Differently from cutting, punching allows to make curved shapes.

Saddle Stitch
Printed pages are first collected and bent. Then the different folded sheets are stapled with staples along the central fold. 

Ring Binding
Differently from the Saddle Stitch, thanks to the use of ring binding, half-ring shaped eyelets on the back of the printed product facilitate the storage in folders.

Binding with glued paperback PUR
Binding with glued paperback PUR is used for very bulky products. The individual sheets are stacked and brushed on the back. Then the inner part and the cover are joined by a glue, which is hot-stamped and high pressure applied. The positive characteristics of this binding are high elasticity, resistance to stress and duration. The drying process requires a little more time for completion

Binding with glued paperback
Our products are glued with glued binding in head and / or at the foot and for this reason, the individual sheets are stacked one above the other. To improve the glue adhesion, sheets are brushed on the back and glued with cold dispersion glue. After drying, the individual pages can be removed as a block.

The eyelets
Our banners have eyelets to facilitate fitting. A hole by hand is cut in the material and then it is finished with a metal ring. The flags are optionally provided with metal eyelets. The individual pages of our advertising fans have eyelets at the bottom. 

Plasticization is a finish in which a very thin film is applied to the surface of the printed support.
It is used to protect the achieved materials, especially when there are full funds and coloured graphics, as well as to give brilliance or elegant opacity. 

Plasticization can be glossy, matte or soft touch and is used on the books covers, on those of catalogues and brochures, on business cards and invitations, on leaflets, on folders, on the calendars sheets and on the materials to be punched.

Protective Acrylic Painting
The protective painting is a finish, which can be glossy or matte and it works applying at the end of the offset printing process, a water-based acrylic paint that gets dry very soon, thanks to exposure to a source of heat on the surface of the printed sheet. 
Its function is aesthetic because it gives the printed material an extraordinary brilliance but it also has a protective function because it extends the colour rendering over the time. 

This processing is sometimes combined with the UV silk-screen painting, that allows to create " spreading" of paint on very small portions of product (spot), creating original and detailed effects.

UV Painting with reserve (spot)
The UV painting with reserve allows to emphasize one or more details of printed materials, such as cover images and titles, company trademarks, more or less extended graphical details. 
The coating is with reserve (spot) because it is only applied on certain areas of the printed support and exposure to UV rays allows to obtain a more polished layer than any other. 
The glossy paint is preferred in order to valorise one or more printed details on opaque support, while the opaque paint is used to lower the tone of glossy supports, shifting the focus on unpainted areas.
To increase the UV paint spot adhesion, it is advisable to add plasticization.

Digital embossing
Digital embossing or shimmed UV painting allows to highlight some distinctive elements of a printed material (logo and trademark, texts, product images), by coating the surface with a clear ink, to obtain two effects: glossy and "orange peel" (satin). 
It confers a strong impact and dimensionality, because it captures the senses thanks to its special effect "loving touch". 
This particular enhancement can even be made in a few copies to enhance covers, invitations, business cards, cases, boxes, product sheets, cards and other materials for visual and commercial donate 

N.B: matte plasticization is mandatory

Digital Punching
The digital punching is a special and innovative finishing which allows to obtain shaped articles, folders, original business cards, labels and adhesives, small exhibitors, boxes and other visual communication products without using the traditional wood hollow cutter.
The digital cutting system (blade) - Kongsberg i-xe 10 – allows to obtain full cuts, half cuts and accurate creases, in line with standards required by the industrial packaging: precision and versatility even in a few copies. 
It does not require the production of wood hollow cutters, since the desired template is obtained on a specific level of the graphic file.
The digital punching is the ideal answer for those who want to develop designs and personalized shapes up to several hundred units: any type of format can be punched, without affecting the production costs.
