Binding & Finishing for Copying
Velo binding is also referred to as strip binding. This binding and finishing is used for aesthetics and security. The velo binding and finishing looks very clean, but the documents won't lie flat while opened. Velo binding is used for security because the only way to add, remove or switch pages within the bound document is to break the binding first. Once the binding has been broken and the editing has been completed, the documents will need to be re-bound with a new velo strip. The velo binding and finishing is one of our most popular requests and is often used within the judicial systems. (See courts requirements before choosing a bind)
GBC binding is often referred to as "comb" binding. GBC binding and finishing allows the look to lie flat while open and document pages can be added, removed or switched around fairly easily. While GBC binding and finishing is common, it's ability to be edited without much difficulty prevents it's use from being considered secure and therefore isn't used as often as velo binds.
Deposition binding is typically used by court reporters. The finishing on deposition binding is plain looking but very clean. This binding is rarely, if ever, used for court filings because of how easy it is to add, remove and edit the documents. To use deposition binding your copies will need to be three-hole punched.
Acco binding and finishing is most common with medical records. It is very similar to the two-prong binding that often accompanies medical charts with the only difference being the fastener that secures the documents to the two prongs.
3-Ring Binders are used regularly throughout the document handling world. This very popular form of document binding and finishing requires the documents to be three-hole punched before being inserted into a binder. New Jersey Legal uses only the highest quality binders available, insuring your documents will remain safe and intact for years to come.
Saddle stitching is a type of binding and finishing that is typically used for small books and pamphlets that are folded down the center and stapled twice in the fold. Saddle stitch binding and finishing is popular amongst small books and pamphlets due to the convenience of a bind without the bulky spine.
