Choose Optimum Bindery

Our customers depend on us for bindery finishing services that they can’t do themselves, have conflicting due dates, or are too big to be done in house – the jobs that need more human interaction, creativity and care. We’re a two-generation, family-run operation focused on personal service, attention to detail, and maintaining an experienced staff. It’s what keeps our customers coming back when they really need something done right.

You can also count on us to save you money, and we’re very good at that too. Maximizing layouts for print isn’t something that you learn in design school or inherently know without hands-on experience working to get the most value on every job… day after day… year after year. Challenge us to work with you to save on paper costs, setup and run time, and cutting. We thrive on that. It’s important to us to be efficient for obvious reasons, but it also helps build strong relationships with printers who appreciate that kind of partnership with their bindery.

In this business you need answers from us quickly. Often it’s a timely response that wins the job and a slow response that loses it. Expect same-day quotes, typically within a few hours. Whatever the project - the harder the better - we guarantee friendly service, utmost professionalism and beautifully finished pieces on time, every time.

Why Use Us

Comprehensive Bindery & Finishing Services

Often times you can do straightforward jobs yourself and we know that. But it’s also true that we add value when the job is done here. Here’s why:

We staff full-time skilled employees instead of relying on a temporary workforce that grows and contracts based on the workload. This raises the quality of the work that we produce for two reasons – our employees are experienced in this field and with our equipment, and they take responsibility for the work they produce because they are vested in this company.

Also, we get the difficult jobs that printers can’t do themselves all the time, and for that reason we have pushed the boundaries and have mastered the use of every piece of equipment here. Every day we find ways to modify our machines to tackle an out-of-the-norm project. We have become experts at running and maintaining our gear so it runs perfectly. Therefore, so do your projects.

Our Management

Like every business, it’s the people who are responsible for our success. We’re a family-run business where the President actively monitors the production floor every day. You can always speak to someone who knows the status of your work, and you’ll find that we take pride in all of the work we do here. Actually, the biggest criticism we get is that we are perfectionists…and we’re guilty.

Think of us like a second set of eyes before the work gets to the client or end-user. At times, we’ve raised flags for anything from a typo, to a pagination mistake, to an imperfection in the printing process before it gets here that we just feel safer if we question. We’re confident that you won’t find another bindery who cares more that your finished piece looks great, whether it relates to the work we've done on it or not.

Fulfillment & Handwork

We're known for doing a lot of handwork from applying items on covers with fugitive glue to collating pieces that won't go through machinery. Our experienced crew will get the best productivity out of what may seem like the most time-consuming or tedious projects, even when they have to be done by hand.

Ask us about your fulfillment project. We are very creative, stretch the standard limits on machinery every day, and make the difficult look easy.
