Helpful Hints

Annual Reports


For most publicly-traded companies, the annual report is the most visible piece of literature they distribute. Although the majority of annual reports are adhesive bound, many companies would like a "high-end" version of the report for distribution to major stockholders and the board of directors, and for placement in lobbies and other high-traffic areas within the company.
At Seidl's Bindery, we have a great solution. A split run of Wire-O and adhesive bound annual reports can handle the need for both standard and "elite" versions of your annual reports, and with minimal impact on your printing schedule. Wire-O binding offers sophistication along with plenty of design flexibility, making it an ideal choice for annual reports that absolutely must look their best.
Adhesive Bound/Wire-O
Planning Tip: Since many annual reports include mixed stocks and heavy ink and coating coverage, a split run of PUR and Wire-O binding allows you to use a single print run for each binding style.
Planning Tip: Allow 3/8" copy clearance margin from the bind edge to avoid punching into type or other important copy. Consult us prior to printing to be sure all margins have been accounted for.
Planning Tip: If you want to give the Wire-O versions a higher-quality feel, consider switching stocks. Run the Wire-O books first with a #1 sheet, then switch to an uncoated stock for the adhesive-bound copies - without changing plates.
