Binding

Our blocks are sewn with medium and long run inserts sewn inbetween or around the sections. The short run inserts are tipped in and PUR bound to provide you with a diary that will have good lay flat properties and long life expectancy.

If you are using your diary as a Travel Log you will need to keep it for up to 5 years for tax records and can be confident that your diary will still be in good shape if you are ever required to submit proof of travel records.
Corners

Corners can be added on material covered diaries to improve the durability and prevent the corners from being damaged. Our square corners add a premium finish and are available in silver or gold.
Debossing

Debossing is a stylish finishing effect that can be used to create an accent on the covers of diaries. The process is achieved using a block and applying heat and pressure on the cover material resulting in the image being lower than the surface of the cover material.

Thermo Book Cloth react to the heat and pressure applied, resulting in an attractive branding effect with the debossed area being a darker shade than the cover material.
Electrical Insert

The handy 4 page Electrical Insert includes all the essential and useful information for the electrical industry. These inserts are available in our A5, Management and A4 sizes.
Engineering Insert

The 32 printed page Engineering Insert is a "must" for anyone involved in Engineering with plenty of valuable and helpful information commonly needed in the industry. Compiled by industry experts, you will find this a great asset. These inserts are available in our A5, Management and A4 sizes.
Foiling

Foiling replaces traditional ink with a reflective gold, silver or clear foil resulting in an eye catching effect ideally suited for corporate logos, the year and name personalisation.

Foiling involves the application of metallic foil to the cover material. A heated block is used to transfer the metallic foil to the cover surface, leaving the image of the block on the cover. Foiling is a permanent process and is very popular.
Head and Tail Bands

We use Head and Tail Bands as a standard finish for our diaries and journals giving them a classic finishing touch.
Padded Covers

A padded foam board can be used on the front cover of both printed and material covered diaries and journals to give a more luxurious and soft touch finish.
Printed Covers

Custom designed printed covers are digitally printed on the HP Indigo for short runs or litho printed on the Komori press for longer runs. Both presses have been colour profiled to ensure colour consistency. Printed covers allow you to include your own branding and stunning printed artwork on the cover of your diary. The digital covers also offer the flexibility of adding variable data for name personalisation on cover artwork. Printed covers can be matt or gloss laminated.
Printed Inserts

Include your own personalized insert in the front of the diary or journal; between sections or around the sections ranging from 2 – 48 pages of content to include your corporate profile, product range or inspirational messages. Our digital HP Indigo Press offers great flexibility particularly when it comes to shorter runs and makes inserts practical for as little as 10 diaries or journals. Longer runs are litho printed on our state-of-the-art litho Komori presses.
Ribbons

Most of the diaries are supplied standard with a ribbon which is useful as a bookmark or placeholder. For a more personal touch a second ribbon can be added.
Stitching

Stitching adds an elegant and sophisticated touch to diaries and is particularly effective in providing some extra detail to lift a plain one colour cover or accentuate a two tone finish.
Variable Data

Variable Data refers to information that can be changed from one diary to the next e.g. individuals names in the case of personalization where each diary or journal has a different name. Please see Technical Specifications Download on our downloads page for specific requirements relating to Variable Data.
