We specialise in delivering end-to-end book-making projects, from design, layout & composition through to content print through to binding & finishing the final product.
Our ‘on-demand’ digital printing operations also can cater for short runs, ideal for a cost effective option, where small numbers are involved.
We also provide a la carte services, any single or multiple aspects of the book-making process. This gives the client the option and freedom to provide any part of the requirement, such as completed designs, content print (part or whole), completed ‘inners’ (book blocks), materials etc.
Please get in touch to find out how we can help you with your project.
TOAD® Trade Services specialise in expert bookbinding and printing. We deliver both small book run
alongside large corporate bookbinding orders.
No matter how big or small your project, from a run of many 1,000s of units to a single individual
book-making project, our production teams are ready to fulfil your requirements.
Our in-house design team will help you originate your book
content, either working to your brief or receiving finished or near-finished artwork and
compositions from your own chosen team (in-house or agency). We have a wide range of content
templates to choose from or use as a basis for your own bespoke needs. These templates cover such
propositions as log-books, academic planners, diaries, journals, specialised notebooks and much,
Perfect Binding is the method used to bind paperback books
and high quality magazine publications… think National Geographic. It’s a superb looking binding
option, but also creates a durable finished product. All our perfect bound books are made with top
quality materials by our highly skilled staff members and go through thorough quality checks to
ensure you get the perfect finished product.
We offer both wiro-binding and
spiral-binding services, really popular as a cost effective binding treatment. Spiral enclosures are
commonly used for everyday diaries and promotional books. The spiral option is often used for school
planners as it gives a more sturdy finish with a fastening loop at the end of the book. Wiro-binding
on the other hand can come in many different colours giving choice and flexibility to the product
you need producing.
Also know as hardback or case binding, Hardcover Binding is
one of the most popular and durable materials that books can be made from. One option we provide is
a hardback P.P.C finish (Printed Paper Covers) that enables full colour bespoke branding and cover
detail. Other options include quality material, leather and leather-look finishes, which can be
foil-blocked from a variety of foil colours or embossed in a chosen manner.
Speaking into tradition and quality, these are bindings and finishes designed to give a lasting
impression… and to last a lifetime.
Digital printing is ideal for short-to-medium runs because
there are minimal setup costs involved. Our top quality digital print presses provide excellent
resolution and output, meaning that it’s now easier and cheaper than ever to be able to purchase a
short run of quality books.
Litho printing provides the most cost effective option for large runs because it is the cheaper
option per printed page. Litho technology also has traditionally had the advantage of being the most
accurate and higher quality option. So large runs that need to be ‘pin perfect’ will benefit from
this timeless printing technology.
Our materials and finishing options are equally extensive
and include leather, leather-look, vinyl, fabric, as well as a complete range of paper cover and
quality card treatments.
There is a wide variety of finishing touches and treatments that include foil blocking, ‘blind
embossing’, leather stamping, inclusion of ribbon markers, bands, attractive header strips and more.
