Some office printers come with finishing options to streamline workflows and help you complete tasks without leaving the machine. But what do those options look like in the production print world? Let's find out!

Production Print Finishing Options

Production printers are all about efficiency and power. They help improve your print environment by ensuring that you can always keep things moving--even high-speed, high-volume jobs. But that's not just about optimized settings, smart design, and highly effective internal mechanisms; it's also about finishing options.

Here's a look at the finishing options you can choose from on many production print systems and add-ons:

Folding and Creasing

When you've just printed 1,000 brochures, the last thing you want to do is go through and *fold* 1,000 brochures. Fortunately, folding and creasing options can do this for you. All you have to do is choose your preferred style and tell the system what kind of material it's folding or creasing so it can use the right angles and pressure.


Lamination gives your prints an extra layer of protection and professionalism. There are all kinds of options for laminating machines, so make sure you choose the features or add-ons that work best for your production print needs.

UV Coating

With a UV coating solution, you can use ultraviolet light and a specialized liquid coating to create a glossy, protective film over your fresh prints. The result doesn't just look professional; it's also more durable and keeps colors brighter for longer.


Production print enables you to quickly and effectively print book-length materials, and binding solutions help you put those materials together. You can often choose from different binding options to customize the appearance and functionality.


Production print helps you complete print jobs from start to finish--and that includes finishing options. When shopping for your perfect machine, keep these options in mind and choose what works best for your workflows.
