Black & White Printing

Black and white printing is one of our specialties.

We have lots of high-quality equipment that can get your job printed very quickly. If you have an impossible deadline, give us a call. We can help.

We are not only fast, but we're surprisingly affordable. We'll provide a top-quality job at a price that will put a smile on your face.

Colour Printing

Study after study has shown that full-colour printing is more "influential" and promotes higher response rates than two-colour or black-and-white materials. There is no doubt that it is worth the extra investment.

We have top-quality colour printers that can give you that edge for a very reasonable cost. Give us a call today and let us add some colour to your life.

Litigation Copies

In the courtroom, a single case can require thousands of individual documents, all carefully reproduced and painstakingly organized. Whether it's paper originals or computer files, we can copy, enlarge, mount, and laminate your court materials to look their best when you need them the most.

Litigation jobs demand speed and precision from an experienced hand, but more importantly, they require complete confidentiality on the part of our employees. No amount of speed and accuracy can make up for a breach of confidence. That's why we never compromise our commitment to maintaining confidentiality.

Government copying. Medical records. Legal briefs. Whatever the need -- large or small -- we can handle all your litigation needs. Our wide range of litigation copy services includes:

  • Colour copies from books, photos, charts, and graphs
  • Black and white copies
  • Enlargements in black and white or colour
  • Full-colour exhibits
  • Custom or standard index tabs
  • Two or three-hole drilling
  • Complete binding services
  • Mounting
And when we're finished, your originals will be returned to you in pristine condition, just as we received them.

We're proud to provide exceptional service and quality while preserving your clients' privacy. Let us show you what we can do for you today!

For vehicles, to apply to your product, for inexpensive advertising...stop by and let us help you take advantage of the possibilities of labels.

Book Binding

Book(let) Binding

 

Booklet Binding

Nothing makes a book look better than professional binding. We offer many options when you're booklets, manuals, or catalogs need to look great.

Here are some of the more popular binding products and services we offer.

  • Fold and Staple - Our automated equipment makes it easy and affordable to produce a beautiful 'fold and staple' booklet. We can add a heavier cover to make it look even better.
  • Plastic Coil Binding - This process is great for thicker books (up to 1.5" thick). One of the best things about coil binding is that the finished book lies flat when opened.
  • Soft Cover Bindings - Also known as 'perfect binding,' this is an economical way to put a traditional soft cover on your book.
  • We also provide printed or plain covers, clear acetate covers, and other types of bindings for specialty projects.

Coil Binding

Coil binding, also known as spiral binding, is a commonly used bookbinding style for creating documents, reports, cookbooks, manuals and proposals. When you bind a book with a spiral coil, it has the ability to open flat on the desk or table and offers 360° rotation for easier note-taking.

This durable and strong binding method is one of our most popular choices. Please call us to learn about the many options we have available.

Perfect Binding

Perfect binding provides a result similar to that of a paperback book. Remember those old phone books we all had? That's a common example. National Geographic magazine would be another.

Perfect binding is produced by printing the covers separately and attaching them at the spine with a strong, flexible glue. We then trim the books on three sides to make them look clean and professional.

There are two options for perfect binding...a good, economical version and a much stronger (although more expensive) version called PUR perfect binding.

Stapling

Stapling is one of the simplest – and most effective – methods of binding used today. In addition to stapling loose sheets together in the upper left corner (or anywhere), we can "saddle-stitch," which simply means we put two staples through the spine of a folded booklet, magazine or newsletter.

Stapling is a sturdy, attractive binding option that is also cost-effective. We can staple your booklet with or without a separate cover.

Wraparound Covers

Traditionally used for invoices and similar carbonless forms, a cardstock cover is "wrapped around" the entire book of forms, with a flap that is tucked beneath the top form. This flap allows you to fill our the carbonless form without writing onto the form(s) below it.

Letterpress

Die Cut

Sometimes a print project requires a unique cut that can't be done with a traditional paper cutters. That's one of the great features of a letterpress...it can die cut many shapes. Whether it's a circle, "door/mirror hanger" or other unique shape, let us help you out.

Our die-cutting services are great for:

  • Table Tents
  • Doorknob Hangers
  • Car Mirror Hangers
  • Die-cut Postcards
  • Rounded Corners
  • And more

Scoring

On its own, cardstock does not fold well. That's where scoring comes in. We can put a groove into the cardstock to ensure that it folds accurately and does not damage the ink or paper when it's folded.

Perforating

Ticket, gift certificates, statements, tags and several other projects lend themselves to having a tear-off portion. This is done with a perforation. Our letterpress does a fine job of perfing your job.

Bindery and Finishing Services

"Finishing" The Job

 

Folding

Our automated equipment can provide a crisp fold in several different formats. We can fold in half, in thirds, as a "Z-Fold" as well as several other options.

The most popular fold is a three-fold brochure. Folding in half is also a popular choice.

For more unique folding jobs, we also offer several hand-folding options.

Paper Cutting

A precise, clean cut if very important for a great-looking print job. Our commercial-grade digital paper cutters are extremely fast and accurate. They use a high-pressure clamp to ensure that the paper doesn't shift, and our razor-sharp blades provide a clean cut each time.

Hole Punching

Whether you need a traditional 3-hole punch or 2-hole or even 5-hole, we can do it quickly and affordably. Our specialized paper drill presses are designed to punch holes through large stacks of paper.

Need a larger or smaller hole? No problem. Need it in a specific place? We can do that. Putting a hole in a tag or other special item? Right up our alley!

Quick Tip #1: Remember to allow 1/2" of extra margin for three-hole drilling along the side of the sheet of paper.

Quick Tip #2: Did you know studies have shown that people tend to save printed items longer if they are three-hole drilled? Marketing experts think that subconsciously we tend to feel like we need to put a three-hole drilled sheet into a binder or save it for future reference.

Round Cornering

Adding a rounded corner to your business card or postcard can add an "extra touch." We can round the corners of most anything...ask us today.

Collating

Collating is simply the process of gathering individual sheets (or other parts of a print job) and assembling them into a finished product.

Copiers can collate automatically, but did you know that we can also collate other items, too? Our high-speed collating equipment can save you the time it would take to hand-collate the project. The next time you have a big project that requires collating, keep us in mind - we make it so easy, you'll never want to hand-collate again.

Stapling & Stitching

You know what stapling is, but you may be wondering how 'stitching' relates to printing? Actually, "stitching" simply refers to stapling more than 40 pages. It generally requires an industrial-sized, floor-mounted piece of equipment.

At Instant Print & Promo, we have a variety of stapling and stitching machines that can handle any type of book or printed project you need to assemble.

Gluing Into Pads

A glued pad is a very handy way to keep a set of sheets together and ready for use. Not only is it used for memo pads, but is convenient for work orders, invoices, checklists and inspection forms. Let a glued pad make life easier and more convenient for you. Ask us how today.

Laminating

Simply put, laminating adds value to your printed project and posters. How?


  • Increases durability
  • Preserves colours
  • Enables your projects to withstand moisture
  • Protects your projects from fingerprints, abrasions, and smudges.
  • Its glossy finish gives your projects a professional look that you can be proud of.


Next time you want to add a little something extra to your printing or posters, let us laminate them for you!

Numbering

Many invoices, tickets and forms require sequential numbering. Numbering is a convenient way to maintain accurate records and improve organization.

We have the ability to do almost any sort of numbering you need. Any starting number. Ascending or descending. We can even count by 2's or 3's.

Perforating

Perforating a form or ticket can create a convenient tear-off for your customer, or a record for your business. There are many uses for a perforation on a printed product.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will happily offer suggestions and solutions for your perforating needs.

Shrink Wrapping

Presentation is everything. We use a clear shrink wrap to package up your printed job so you can see right away how it looks. We can also shrink wrap your job to meet your requirements, so it is ready for you to give or sell to your customer.

Hand Work

Do you have a special project that needs a unique touch? We do folding, labeling, collating, inserting, sealing, double-sided taping, kitting, packing—and just about anything else you can imagine. Our bindery services department is fully capable of handling all your labour-intensive needs. Let us save you time!

Mailing Services

Mailing Services

 

Personalized Mailouts

Personalization can play a key role in the success of your direct mail marketing campaigns. Even something as simple as a personalized headline or greeting can have a significant impact on response. That's where our state-of-the-art inkjet address service comes into play. Once we print your mailer, we can personalize it as we address it, all in one easy step. Choose any font you'd like, any size, and any ink colour. Our equipment can even add a personalized or static headline or ad line anywhere on the mailer at the same time it's applying the address.

Inserting

Whether a simple, one-page sales letter in an envelope, Christmas card or a multi-piece marketing kit (letter, several brochures, reply form, etc.), we can put it all together for you accurately and fast. Our high-speed automatic inserters allow us to handle very large mailings. We've also perfected a fast and accurate method of hand insertion for those projects which cannot be done by machine.

Post Office Delivery

When your mailing is completed, we can deliver it directly to the post office for you. We are experts at completing Canada Post paperwork (which is often complicated and confusing), and we have a lot of experience working with the bulk mail department at the post office. We strongly suggest you allow us to work with the post office on your behalf. There is a small cost for our service, but we can save you a lot of time and possible frustration. Allowing us to handle your mailing project from concept to post office delivery is a smooth, one-step process that saves you time, money, and stress.
