A desirable finishing architecture would include an architecture where no trays protrude out from the front plane of a finisher, a one stapler head design which can also accomplish dual stapling without productivity loss, and one that can handle A3 sheets with ease. Figures 1 and 2 show an architecture that enables those ends through inverting and rotating sheets simultaneously as they are fed through a copiedprinter 10. While Figures 1 and 2 will be described for use with a N - 1, face down (except A3), left to right machine, the inverting and rotating apparatus can be used with other architectures by moving the stapler to different locations and changing how dual stapling is accomplished.
