Specialties Graphic Finishers (Toronto) has purchased the assets (i.e. equipment) of Sands Tag Stringing of Mississauga, a specialist in stringing for the printing and finishing industries. “The equipment from Sands, who’ve been in business for over 30 years, will be moved to our Toronto head office and will enable us to produce more specialized and more sophisticated high-value end products – such as larger tags, longer strings, odd shapes such as crosses, special perfect-bound books, die-cut circles and much more,” said Specialties President Norm Beange. “There’s simply no other trade bindery in Canada that can offer such a wide range of these types of high-end products all under one roof.”
Specialties Graphics Finishers has clients across Canada and the U.S. and is recognized throughout the printing industry for its complex and often decorative finishing products – many of which are not accepted by ‘traditional’ trade binderies. It’s website and in-house displays are a showcase of the company’s huge range of high-end binding and finishing capabilities. These include mechanical, perfect and special binding, saddle stitching and sewing, foil gilding, board books, PMC die-cutting, regular and specialty folding, ring binders, tag stringing, Z-fold cards, tipping, and much more. The company is also known for its unique, intricate and decorative combinations of these technologies, even in one-off quantities.
