Finishing & Logistics

What is Print Finishing?

Print finishing is the end of the production process. This is where printed flay sheets are made into the final product. Finishing can be from as simple as trimming down a sheet to a final size, to Lamination, foil blocking, cutting out, tab cutting and making into a perfect bound book. With Newnorth’s comprehensive in-house print finishing facilities, our clients can be confident that, regardless of how demanding their requirements are, we can meet them on-time and cost-effectively. Once complete we can offer a fully tracked overnight service or using our own fleet and staff, deliver direct to you.

What We Do

  • Perfect Binder – Our Wohlenberg Binder collates, glues and cuts books to finished size, Perfect binding is generally used on higher pagination work, but is also often used on higher end work, where the end user needs to book or magazine to be a little harder wearing. Several different glues can be used to ensure longevity of the product.
  • Guillotine – Our guillotine is a busy bit of kit, most smaller jobs that  we produce go through this process. As the name suggests the tungsten tipped blades on the knife cut paper and board to the required size.
  • Stitcher – Our Heidelberg ST350 stitcher, collates up the folded sections, stitches (staples) them together and then trims the booklet to the required size, manned 24 hours a day it’s another busy part of the operation.
  • Folders – Whether it’s a simple 4 page or a complex map fold our 3 Heidelberg-Stahl folders can handle it, with the ability to gatefold and from sheet sizes B1 downwards down to A6 there isn’t much we can’t do for you.

PUR Bindery Manager

I'm in charge of running our new PUR perfect binder. It is a surprisingly big bit of kit, that actually rivals the largest of our presses in terms of floor space used. I have a keen interest in mountain biking and British military fitness between the two of them I like to think I keep in pretty reasonable shape.
