Finishing

Our Bindery contains an impressive collection of equipment that showcases our finishing capabilities. We have a large array of folders, saddle-stitchers, perfect and PUR binding lines in addition to poly-wrapping equipment and mailing lines.

A recent development saw an investment in new MBO Leman folders to increase our capabilities within that particular area.

Further developments have also been confirmed within our Bindery as we will investing in no fewer than four new Muller Martini print finishing systems. http://www.stephensandgeorge.co.uk/news-post/muller_martini/

Our Sitma W1150-0 wrapping machine enables us to print your logo, barcodes and PPIs directly onto the polywrap.

We operate our own fleet of vehicles which service the M4 corridor, the Home Counties and the vast majority of London travelling 3 or 4 times a day on a daily basis.
