Printing Shops & Hole Punching

Postby paulsalem » Tue, 16 Oct 2012 11:17 am

Does anyone know of a print shop that will punch custom holes into paper?

I have a 7 ring ledger binder and I can't find anyone that can punch holes in it. The Kinko's / Fedex Office locations in the US all have a drill press that is customizable (so I know it can be done). However, I can't seem to find anyone who can do this in Singapore and I've called and visited dozens of shops.

Thanks.

Have you tried Bras Plaza which tends to house all the printing shops

Thanks. I'll take a trip out there. I tried the 15 or so shops at Katong Shopping Center and they all looked at me like I was nuts.

Did you go to the one in Roxy Square on the second floor? If you're coming from the bridge over Marine Parade Road, just follow the hallway straight until you're force to turn left.

Not 100% sure they'll do it, but I suspect they may. And it's closer to KSC than Bras Basah.

They almost always do that if you ask for something they don't know, not just stationery.

A friend of mine referred me to:
Jabez printing
Block 966 Bendemeer Road
#06-01
S 339944
6841.2016
9851.6854
jabezhse@singnet.com.sg
http://jabezprint.com/

For 250 pages printed, front & back on my own paper (special color) and 7 hole punched S$40 with 1 day turn around. Seems pretty pricey to me. I may go check out your other suggestions.

Thanks to all for the quick responses.
