Binding, Finishing, and Mailing:
The Final Word

T.J. Tedesco, Jean-Marie Hershey, Dave Clossey

The graphic arts industry has experienced tremendous change in the last quarter century. While the prepress and press areas have received the majority of the attention from the trade media, the bindery and finishing areas have gone largely unnoticed...until now.

Designed to help printing professionals make useful recommendations to their customers, the second edition of Binding, Finishing, and Mailing takes readers through a comprehensive exploration of the world of binding, finishing, and mail preparation. In five main sections and 70 concise chapters, the authors provide a wealth of information for people performing a variety of functions at graphic arts companies:

• Owners and top managers
• Customer service professionals
• Sales professionals
• Estimators and production managers
• Graphic designers
• Bindery employees
