What is velo binding used for?
Once a document is velo bound, it is impossible to remove a page without damaging the binding strip.
Can covers be added?
Yes. For extra durability, consider our card cover (printed or plain) and acetate cover options. Covers can be added to the front and back of the document as required.
How should artwork be set-up?
Set-up your artwork as single pages (not spreads), in the following order:
Page 1 - front cover
Page 2 onwards - inside pages
Last page - back cover
You can then use our Cover Tool to move page 1 and the last page to the covers. Alternately, upload only the inside pages and use our Cover Design Tool to create a cover.
Need to write in your document?
If you need to write on the pages, we recommend matt paper.
Choose same day or next day production time and courier delivery for the speediest service.
Royal Mail 1st Class delivery is not recommended for urgent orders.
