The type of binding that is selected is based on the function of the document, the number of pages it contains, and the budget for the project. Below are types of binding that we offer to complete your project.
Probably the most common and economical binding method. Created by punching wire through the document’s outside spine, then bending the wire flat on the inside centre fold to grip all the pages.
Stab or side stitching uses wire that is stabbed into the front cover, through the inside pages and back cover of the document, instead of along the spine. Often covered to hide the wire.
Sections of folded pages have their spines trimmed off and roughed up to improve bonding with glue. All sections are collated and glued to its wrap around cover. Cover is always scored on back and front, for ease of opening and less stress on spine.
This method involves an adhesive tape being wrapped around the spine to hold the covers and inside pages in place.
Utilizes a smooth round coil to hold pages together. Allows book to lie flat when open or pages can be turned all the way around to the back if desired. Coil is threaded through punched holes and then Ends are crimped to prevent wire slipping off. Coils are available in variety of colors.
Economical method suitable for manuals and books that need to lay flat when open. Using rectangular holes punched through the document, the plastic comb rings are threaded through holes. Page edges at spine are covered by plastic comb.
