Binding, or finishing, is the final step in the printing process. Bindery workers take the printed pages that go into books, magazines, pamphlets, catalogs, and other materials and fold, cut, sew, staple, stitch, and/or glue them together to produce the finished product.
Bindery workers typically work in commercial printing plants or specialized bindery shops. Some bindery workers perform highly specialized tasks that require a certain amount of training; other bindery workers perform simple, repetitive tasks that are easily mastered. Approximately 52,000 people are employed in print binding and finishing work in the United States.
