Strip bound documents can enhance the look and appeal of standard printed-paper documents. Strip bind allows the Presentation document to have that extra flare, this style may give you the edge to turn a good document into a exceptionally pleasing and noticed booklet. Further professionality and style can be added by personalising your books with our hot foiling or embossing options, available in a variety of colours and fonts, to learn more just visit our Hot Foil Printing page, or check the "Foil Printing on Book Cover" section when filling out the form below. Students, Universities, Colleges and Professionals have all used Strip Binding style to their advantage.
