Hole Punching

Need your sheets hole-punched? Choose our 2 or 4 hole-punched option.

The holes will be placed on the left long edge for portrait documents and on the top long edge for landscape documents.


Encapsulation is the process of covering the sheet in plastic (and is often mistakenly referred to as 'lamination'). It provides extra protection and durability to your document.

Encapsulation makes the sheet watertight and is a popular choice for menus, maps and documents for use outdoors.

Half Fold

Our half fold option is ideal for a simple order of service, event programme, newsletter, leaflet or invitation. One sheet of paper can be folded in half to create a 4 page booklet.

If you require a booklet with a higher page count, please view our booklet printing service.

Step 3

Sorry, your document does not have enough pages to produce a Loose or Stapled if printed double sided.

However, if you are happy for it to be printed single sided then please select Continue. Alternatively, select Cancel and either choose a different product or Contact Us for assistance.
The paper size of the document you have uploaded is Letter/AQ size (i.e. 215.9mm x 279.4mm). If you are happy for this to be printed on A4 paper (i.e. 210mm x 297mm) then select Continue. Alternatively, Contact Us for assistance if you would like to print your document on Letter/AQ size paper, or select Cancel.
The orientation of the document you have uploaded is Landscape. However, the selected product requires the orientation to be Portrait and therefore any Landscape pages will be rotated 90 degrees anti-clockwise. If you are happy for this to occur then select Continue. Alternatively, select Cancel and upload a re-formatted document.
