Business Printing
Commercial printing is a fancy way of saying the marketing and sales collateral that we print for businesses.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur that is just starting out, a small business owner or a director at a large corporation you will need to have printed collateral to leave behind with customers, stakeholders and shareholders.

Your business card may be small, but don’t underestimate its value – even in today’s digital world.

Poorly produced business cards don’t just end up at the backs of drawers; they affect your credibility with potential customers! Why not impress them instead?

At Print on Demand, we have invested in technology that automates the process of printing marketing and sales collateral. We call this our web – to – print solution. What this means for you as a company is that we work hand in hand with your team to upload all of your branding, logo and sales and marketing collateral to a secure website that is password-protected. We then brand this secure portal with your company look and feel and then whenever any employee needs a business card or a brochure they simply log in, select the item, request cost approval and print.

We receive the order, print and deliver it in time for the meeting. No fuss, no waiting, and no costly storage. It’s that simple.

Book Binding Options

PUR Bound: This is the preferred binding method of most mainstream publishers. It is stronger and more durable although slightly more expensive than Perfect binding, in addition a PUR bound book will typically require 24 hours for the book to set and is therefore not suitable for urgent deliveries.

Perfect Bound: Your standard square back softcover book binding method, the book needs to be 64 pages or more for this method to ensure a strong bind. To have text printed on the spine the book would need to be around 80 pages otherwise it’s too thin for text.

Saddle stitch: Also referred to as “two wire” stitching, this is a stapled book and us used for books below 64 pages. Your page count must be divisible by 4, if not, blank pages are added to the back of your book to make up for the shortfall.

Coil bound: Also referred to as plasticoil or spiral bound (like our old roadmap books). Recommended for books less than 25mm thick, between 48 and 470 pages.

Dust Jacket Hardcover: The case (technical term for the cover) can be bound with a printed lining or a material lining like book cloth, vinyl etc but would need to be foiled or blind embossed as we cannot print on these materials, a dustjacket is printed creased and wrapped around the case.

Casewrap Hardcover: The case (technical term for the cover) can be bound with a printed lining or a material lining like book cloth, vinyl etc but would need to be foiled or blind embossed as we cannot print on these materials.

Thesis Binding: Most theses binding is case wrapped i.e. a hard cover with gold lettering, the case or cover material can be in red black or green.

Signage & Branding
Whether you’re looking to put up a bold new sign at the top of your building or redo your storefront for the next season or simply want to get add some privacy to that glass boardroom we can print it all. Whether you’re looking for something plain, something with a pattern or want help designing your own if it comes to signage, branding and interiors; Print on Demand is your go to.

We believe that vehicle decals, wrapping and branding deserve a special mention in this section as they provide a high exposure and low-cost means of getting your business out there. Do not underestimate the power of having your company name or website on your vehicles – think how many more visits your site will get and how many new quotes that can generate.

No sign is a sign of no business. In the industry branding and signage is known as large format printing because it is these items which bear the mark of your business, that create brand awareness, tell people what products and services you offer and bring customers in off the street.

Most branding elements are commonly put up at your office factory and other business premises. These take the form of signage that includes your logo, business name, images, services you offer, trading hours and contact details. These can be put up as light boxes, created out of flexi face PVC or pasted down as sticker decals or vinyl on the windows and doors.

Does your company often host events? Training seminars, sales workshops and customer networking events all need signage and branding. Here vinyl, wallpapers, sticker decals, hanging and pull up banners are all important ways to make your mark both on the event space and in the minds of your attendees.

The most effective signage and branding solution available is vehicle branding. Whether it’s just placing your company details on the side of your delivery van or doing full vehicle wrapping on an entire logistics fleet, do not underestimate the new business and sales power of owning a mobile billboard in the form of your vehicles carrying your company’s services across the city.

With Print on Demand you decide how much you earn on each book sale.

A variety of printing services under one roof

Print On Demand is a term used in the printing industry to describe the process of instantly (yes same day) printing only what you need when you need it.
For instance in the past if you were having a seminar or a conference with 50 delegates attending a forum on the future of printing in Cape Town South Africa, it would normally have to print a few hundred or thousand brochures to make the price per unit produced a reasonable price, that has all changed with Print On Demand you can now print exactly the right amount of printed product required for your conference only a day before the conference takes place, and print exactly the right amount of printed product for the correct amount of delegates, wasting nothing in the process.
