Book Binding Options
Hard Cover / Case Binding
Case bound covers can be made of cloth, vinyl, leather or printed paper secured over cardboard then attached to the internal pages using glued-on endpapers. With case binding, the internal pages of the book are sewn or stitched together in page order, then attached to the hard covers.
A widely used soft cover book binding method. With this binding method, the pages and cover are glued together at the spine with a strong yet flexible thermal glue. They have a square, printed spine and the cover is usually made from paper or cardstock that is heavier than the interior pages
Ideal for booklets with a small number of pages where the booklet is stapled along the crease of the fold, with or without a cover.
Plastic Coil Binding
Spiral coil binding (also known as Color coil or plastic coil binding) is one of the most popular and fastest growing of all coil binding styles. Documents bound with spiral coils lay flat and the pages can turn 360 degrees around the flexible PVC coil spine.
Twin Loop wire binding involves taking a preformed C shaped wire, placing the spine through the holes on the edge of your document and using a wire closer to close the C shape into a round binding element. Documents lay flat and is often used for training manuals.
