Finishing & Binding

To add a polished look to your print and copy projects, MIT Copytech offers a full-service bindery with several options, including folding, stapling and trimming. We also provide document assembly for seminars, conferences and symposiums.

Binding choices include GBC plastic comb, spiral plastic coil, and adhesive tape (fastback) in a number of colors. Hard-cover book binding is available for thesis copies.

MIT Copytech has high-speed folders with trimming, slitting and scoring. We also offer heavy-duty stapling.

Finished orders can be forwarded to MIT Mail Services for distribution across campus and/or outside mailing.
