The postpress department takes a job through all the steps that are required to get it from our press into the end user's hands. Those steps might consist of finishing (binding and trimming) to fulfillment (addressing and preparing for the post office).

At Texoma Web Offset Printing we handle our own stitching and trimming. When a book is too large to print in one press run, we will break it into two or more smaller press runs and then put them together to make one larger book. Below are a couple of pictures of one of our stitcher/trimmers. We load the smaller pieces of the book (each called a "signature") into one of the pockets. From the pockets the signatures get dropped onto a chain, one on top of the other, stiches are driven into the spine and finally the stitched book goes into a three knife trimmer which trims all three sides.

When a job requires mailing to individual homes, we will run it through our inkjet system. The inkjet system takes a list of names and using an array of inkjet print heads, sprays the mailing label onto the printed piece.

Texoma Web Offset Printing uses the following equipment during the postpress process:

McCain S2000 6 pocket stitcher trimmer with cover feeder and fourth knife attachment.
2 Domino Label processors w/ JettArray inkjet labeler.
Kansa 480 3 pocket inserter.
