Point Control has evolved into one of the country’s leading binders, specialising in the best quality available to many leading printers and publishers. Our customers can quietly enjoy the confidence of working with our team of highly motivated and skilled personnel, achieving the most demanding deadlines through flexible working practices.

You can be confident that your project is in safe hands whatever its size or nature and that the finished result will impress.

PUR Binding

PUR Binding is our flagship product and our PUR binding service offers our clients an unparalleled level of quality. Combined with our superb attention to detail and emphasis on customer service throughout it’s no surprise we are regarded as one of the leading book binding specialists. PUR (Polyurethane Reactive) glue is the most durable binding glue available, offering design flexibility for any number of applications, including catalogues, instruction manuals and art books.

Digital Print Binding

Digital Print is rapidly expanding and we are an established supplier to the digital printing sector as well as conventional print clients who have a digital print arm. Typically digital print runs are small and we have the flexibility to deal with this – we can bind just one copy if necessary. 

We are frequently asked to produce books from digitally printed stocks using PUR adhesive. We use the PUR option on all digitally printed stocks, as traditional EVA glues can react adversely with the toners, inks and papers used in digital print and if bound often result in a weakened bind. PUR adhesive is the perfect partner to bind digital stocks as it gives a tremendously strong bound product while maintaining flexibility. We bind all of our books on our Pantera binding line, which has a hand feed station enabling us to maintain extremely high standards throughout.

Wire-O Binding

Wire-O binding offers you many benefits and gives a sophisticated appearance that is not restricted to Calendar Production. It is a medium which accommodates different pages, throw-outs, dividers, index tabs and inserts that can vary in thickness, stocks and materials. With an ability to be opened 360 degrees folding all the way back on itself whilst remaining flat. It has many applications making is a great choice for notebooks, reports, directories, cookbooks, music books, map books, travel guides, instruction and maintenance manuals. Add one of the many choices of coloured wire, be creative with the paper colours and stocks in your design to make a striking finished product.
