Unbound Document Printing

If you want to print loose leaf pages and simply require fuss-free, high-quality printed documents, then select unbound document printing.

This covers document printing, flyer printing, leaflet printing, small format poster printing and anything else you want to put on A5, A4 or A3 unbound sheets.

It is also possible to hole punch your documents if you would like to add them to an existing ring binder folder or you can even corner staple pages together if you need a very simple binding style for your documents.

What does loose leaf mean?

Loose leaf sheets are printed pages which are not bound together. They can be simply bound by a staple in the top left corner, or be hole punched and inserted into a ring binder.

Unbound Document printing prices

Doxdirect printed unbound pages start from 4p for a single sided A5 page and 6p for a single sided A4 size page (6p/9p for double sided). We print in standard A5, A4 and A3 sizes in a range of paper weights and finishes. If you require larger sizes (A2, A1 or A0) please see our poster  printing page.

Hole punched pages

Doxdirect can print hole punched pages to fit into a standard two or four hole ring binder folder for A4 and 2 hole for A5. If you want the folder included as well as the hole punched pages please select ring binding as your binding style.

Corner stapled pages

A very simple binding method, Doxdirect can put a staple in the top left hand corner of your documents binding them together for ease of use.

Lamination and encapsulation

We can laminate or encapsulate in A5, A4 and A3 sizes, unbound only, for paper of 160gsm upwards. You should place your order as unbound and then contact us by email directly afterwards to request the lamination or encapsulation.

What’s the difference between encapsulating and laminating?

Encapsulating (which some people call laminating) is where a sheet of paper is placed in a plastic sleeve and then fed through heated rollers to seal and harden it. There is then a 3mm plastic border all the way round, and a gloss finish.

Laminating is where a matt or gloss film is applied to both sides of the sheet, which gives a smoother finish and does not have the plastic border of an encapsulated sheet. Please note we can only laminate paper of 160gsm upwards.

Encapsulating costs: £1 per A5 sheet / £1.50 per A4 sheet / £3 per A3 sheet
Laminating costs: £2 per A5 sheet / £3 per A4 sheet / £6 per A3 sheet
(These prices are subject to VAT)

The encapsulating and laminating prices are in addition to the print costs.

If you wish to proceed please place your order through the website as normal, then email service@doxdirect.com directly afterwards with your order number (if choosing laminating please state Matt or Gloss finish). We will then send you the additional payment details.

Note: For maximum production efficiency, our unbound printing is automated. Orders that require encapsulation or lamination should only be placed during office hours (Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 4.30pm). Please send your email immediately after ordering so that the encapsulation/lamination request can be added to the order asap.
