Finishing Service - Adhering

One of our most common finishing service is adhering. We adhere papers together by hand as well as offer professional duplexing.  When we adhere papers by hand, we use acid free adhesive transfer tape or glue, whichever is appropriate for the task at hand. Below are common finishing methods centered around adhering.

  • Flush Mount or Border Mount Paper Backers.  Paper backers are adhered to the back of a printed panel by hand.  Paper backers may be printed or unprinted.  This is a great way to add a pop of color to any project.
  • Professional Duplexing. Depending on the project, it is sometimes preferred to have papers professionally duplexed.  Duplexing is adhering two papers together such as our cotton 1ply + a black 1ply.  Once the paper is duplexed, we cut it down and prepare for printing. Duplexing is ideal for larger quantity orders, such as business cards.
  • Photo Print and Adhering. We often print save the dates and announcements where a digitally printed photo (of the couple, baby, family) is adhered to a letterpress-printed panel.

General adhering starts at $0.80 per piece. Please contact us for confirmation of pricing.
