About Us

Ocean State Bookbinding has been in business as a print finishing company in Providence, RI since 2000.

It doesn't end with a beautiful print job.

What is commercial print finishing?

Print finishing begins where printing companies leave off. We take your printed materials, and transform them into something that your end customer will not forget. Ocean State Bookbinding provides the services you need to create these functional and sophisticated print materials with the latest equipment and tools. Print finishing takes large scale printed materials, and binds, glues, die-cuts, folds, or any other creative types of transformation, and provides a final, custom piece that will help you to help sell your products. 

We can prepare your paper products for shipment to customers with shrink wrapping, handwork, kitting, and other finishing touches.

What do we do?

Ocean State Bookbinding is a trade bindery located in Providence, Rhode Island. We provide a wide variety of trade finishing services including folding, stitching, perfect binding, and more. We run two shifts, so we can meet the demands of our customers, including turning around complicated jobs that require die-cutting, folding, gluing, punching, collating, and wire-o binding with a two day turnaround!

We're making face shields for front line workers to stay protected.

Who we are 


We employ over 60+ local Rhode Islanders who are dedicated to providing the highest quality projects possible. When we first opened, we had 7 people per shift in a 4,000 square foot building. We have grown into a 60 person, two shift operation that occupies 25,000 square feet. We have gone from 14 pieces of equipment to over 100! We celebrated our 20 year anniversary in 2020 and are proud to be a part of the Rhode Island business community.

Through our growth, we have never lost our commitment to our core principles to:

  • Offer competitive prices
  • Provide the best customer service and respond in a timely manner to all customer needs
  • Deliver every job on time
