Saddle Stitched Books
Pages are bound together by wire staples.
Saddle Stitching is probably the most popular book binding method in which the folded pages are stapled through the fold line with wire staples.
Perfect Bound Books
Often referred to as soft back
Perfect Binding is where the covers are glued to the inside pages with a flexible hot melt adhesive. This requires a spine of usually 3mm or more.
If your document is thinner or requires a stronger bind then please see PUR bound books.
PUR Bound Books
A glued spine with high strength adhesive
Essentially the same looking result to Perfect Binding but using a high strength glue. Suitable for when the binding of your document needs to be longer lasting.
Also suitable for books thinner than 3mm. We will always advise you if your book needs to be PUR Bound over Perfect Bound.
Wiro Bound Books
C shape wire binding offers flexibility
Books that are bound with wire binding will open completely flat and allow for 360 degree rotation of bound pages.
Screw Bound Books
Attractive metal screw binding
Screw Binding works with both hardback and softback books. It is a particularly cost effective solution with larger (A3) books.
Case Bound or Hardback Books
Typically uses a 2mm hard board
Case bound books are commonly known as hardback books. They are made typically with your cover wrapped over a 2mm hard board.
They make it really simple by understanding what’s needed and I trust them to always deliver on time, even when timescales are tight. They have produced roll banners, brochures and forms for us which have all been printed to very high standards.
