Calendar Finishing

Tinning (or Calendar Tinning) is a binding procedure that precisely applies a thin metal strip to the outer edge of a sheet. Tinning is a functional and inexpensive method of binding to add robust support to Calendars, Posters, and Display Signs.

Express Bind’s semi-automatic machines are equipped for short or long runs that can Tin a single sheet at the top, bottom, or both, and also include a Hanging hook.
