Printing & Copying Services

  • Black and White Digital Printing >
    • Black and white digital printing is one of our specialties. We have the capabilities to produce big copy jobs very quickly. Our commercial-quality, high-speed copy equipment provides high-quality images at a low cost.
  • Full Color Printing >
    • Nothing improves the visual impact of your direct mail pieces, newsletters, brochures, manuals or posters like full-color printing. Studies have repeatedly shown that full-color printed materials are more "influential" and promote higher response rates than two-color or black-and-white materials. Our full-color printers can accommodate any job.
  • Offset Printing >
    • Offset printing can be divided into two main categories: Process Printing and Spot Printing. Process Printing uses the full CMYK color grid, whereas Spot Printing provides depth to your project by adding one or two additional colors in key locations on the page. Spot colors can be added to any standard one, two, or four-color project. Offset Printing is great for logos, company colors, and other key elements that require exceptional color accuracy.
  • Thermography Printing >
    • Thermography Printing produces raised printing similar in appearance to engraving. However, thermography is a completely different process. This process uses a powder that adheres to printed ink. Excess powder is removed, and the final result is a product with raised, shiny text. Thermography is a perfect effect for business cards, special documents, wedding invitations, and much more.
  • Two-Color Printing >
    • Two-color printing uses two colors of ink (most often black and a second color) to create a dramatic contrast for a variety of printing needs. Two-Color Printing is less expensive than full-color printing and is perfect for simple business cards, flyers, brochures, letterhead, stationery, envelopes, and other similar office or business documents.

We are well-versed in the rules and regulations that are required for direct mailing, and can make sure your mailings work for you!
  • Email Marketing >
    • Email marketing is a quick and efficient way to spread your brand to your customers. A 2011 study by MarketingSherpa found that B2C marketers average a 256% return on investment with their email marketing campaigns. Another study from Yahoo! shows that U.S. adult Internet users subscribe to an average of three daily or weekly shopping emails or newsletters. Our marketing professionals and graphic designers can help you draft a newsletter, or even email a newsletter that your company created.

Finishing Services

  • Collating >
    • Collating is the process of gathering individual sheets and other elements of your printing project and assembling those elements into a final product. In addition to our copiers that can automatically collate documents, our high-speed collating equipment can bring together every aspect of your project, saving you time and money. This is just one of the many things we do to make your life easier.
  • Corner Rounding >
    • Some specialty services we offer are aimed at making your project more aesthetically pleasing. Corner rounding is one of them. It doesn’t work for every project- but for the right project it can really take it to another level. Many professional promotional products use rounded corners including various sizes of posters, fliers, business cards, and many other custom promotional products.
  • Hole Drilling >
    • Adding holes to a project can really improve the length of time that a customer or client keeps a document. Take a moment to consider that studies have shown that people tend to save printed items longer if they are 3-hole punched. Experts think this is because people subconsciously feel the need to place a 3-hole punched item into a binder or save it for future reference. Whatever the need- we have the equipment to make whatever sort of punch you need on your product. Just remember to allow an extra ½ inch of margin along the side of the paper for any punches.
  • Laminating >
    • Laminating is a simple and professional way to increase the life of your printed products. Laminating increases product durability, preserves colors, enables your projects to withstand moisture, and protects your projects from fingerprints, abrasions, and smudges. Lamination is perfect for professional products including posters, hand-outs, and restaurant menus.
  • Numbering >
    • Numbering is an easy way to ensure paper products are in a particular order. We have the ability to add numbers to any project in various ink colors. We know that carbonless forms and invoices sometimes require sequential numbering- and we have just the technology to make sure that yours are printed perfectly.
  • Paper Cutting >
    • In today’s world projects come in all sizes and shapes. We have the equipment and know-how to create your document in a multitude of different ways. If you can dream it, chances are we can make it.
  • Perforating >
    • Perforated items are commonplace now, and we have seemingly done it all. If you were thinking about anything from tear off raffle tickets to hand-outs we can accommodate your every need. We also are experts in self mailers and will make sure that your perforated product holds up to the rigors that post office mailing equipment can put it through.
  • Scoring & Folding >
    • Our large-scale equipment is capable of high-speed scoring and folding at an affordable price. Our machines can fold at speeds in excess of 20,000 sheets per hour. For specialty jobs, we are more than happy to hand fold your documents.
  • Shrink Wrapping >
    • Our high-quality shrink wrap materials provide you with a simple and effective way to bundle all of your orders. We can shrink wrap materials as small as a business card and as large as 11 x 17 posters.
  • Stitching >
    • Insty-Prints has the capabilities to staple or stitch nearly any order. We have bound books, newsletters, and other documents in the past and have the machine capabilities to handle your order.
  • UV Coating >
    • UV Coating adds a professional glossy look to your product. It is widely used in business cards, catalogs, posters, fliers, and other documents. UV Coating is best used with image rich products where it produces a stunning shine.

Book(let) Binding

Advertising
  • Booklet Binding >
    • We have a multitude of binding options to choose from when you need to bind your books, booklets, catalogs, manuals, newsletters, or anything else. Our binding machines are capable of collating, stapling, and folding projects into very professional looking booklets. Our other main options for booklet binding include coil binding, comb binding, perfect binding, and saddle stitch binding, and wire binding. We can also accommodate specialty bindings when necessary.
  • Coil (Spiral) Binding >
    • Coil binding, also known as spiral binding, is a commonly used bookbinding style for creating documents, reports, presentations, and proposals. Documents bound with spiral coil have the ability to open flat and offer 360° rotation for easier note-taking. Durable and strong, this binding method is often used for documents that need to be mailed. These spines are available in many colors and different sizes than other binding styles.
  • Comb Binding >
    • Comb binding is one of the traditional binding methods. This method utilizes round plastic spines, 19 rings, and a hole puncher that makes rectangular holes. Comb binding can be used in projects up to 400 pages of 20 pound paper. Much like Coil Binding, different colors can be used upon request to enhance the appearance of your project.
  • Perfect Binding >
    • Perfect Binding is a technique used by phone books and many paperback books. This binding technique can accommodate larger size projects that Coil or Comb bindings cannot. Perfect Binding projects result in an invisible binding sealed by a hard or paperback cover.
  • Saddle Stitch Binding >
    • Saddle Stitch Binding features a stapled spine. In addition to allowing this project to lay flat, this binding also has a clean edge. Saddle Stitch Binding is commonly used in catalogs, annual reports, newsletters, and magazines. These documents are nice, clean, and professional.
  • Wire Binding >
    • Wire Binding is one of the most popular commercial binding methods. It is very durable, and is most commonly known as the binding technique for spiral notebooks. One downside to Wire Binding is that it is very difficult to add or delete pages once the document has been bound, but the final projects always look very, very nice.

Mailing Services

Advertising
  • CASS Certification >
    • CASS is a United States Postal Service (USPS) acronym for Coding Accuracy Support System. The term CASS is widely used by the USPS when they refer to the verification status of an address list. In order for an address list to receive CASS certification, it must be checked against the USPS Address Matching System (AMS) CD-ROM, and the 11-digit delivery point ZIP code and corresponding barcode must be added. Only addresses with the delivery point ZIP code and barcode are eligible for "automation" bulk mailing rates. A mailing list must undergo address verification every six months (every three months for carrier route mailings) and is particularly important to mailers because of the difference between the "automation" and "non-automation" mailing rates, which is about $.05 per piece. For a 10,000 piece mailing, CASS certification of the address list could save the mailer approximately $500.

      Our mailing services department uses the latest CASS certification technology (in-house) to help our customers keep the cost of their mailings as low as possible and to ensure a high percentage of delivery success.
  • INKJET address >
    • 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. Our digital printers can add any degree of personalization to selfmailers or postcards. You can choose any font, size, or color that you’d like to add to your document and we’ll make sure that it complies with USPS standards. Our team of graphic designers can work with you to create just the right personalization for each of your documents.
  • Inserting >
    • Whether a simple, one-page letter in an envelope or a multi-piece mailing kit, Insty-Prints 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.
  • Tab Sealing >
    • Tabs are a USPS requirement that must be applied to all self-mailers. Tabs prevent the open edge of your mailer from jamming the Postal Service's high-speed processing equipment. Our mailing services department can apply one or more tab seals easily as part of our inline mail processing capabilities.
