Common Binding Types You Should Know
Whether you need a professional, personalized, or custom booklet, we offer a variety of options for your project. From hard-bound printing to saddle stitch binding and tape binding, we are here to help you bring your creative vision to life.
Whether you’re printing a book, a poster, a flyer, or a desktop organizer, hard-bound printing is a great way to get your message across. The thicker paper used in hard-bound printing can make a product more durable, and the binding process ensures that the book will be preserved for years to come.
Hard-bound printing can be used to make professional-looking business products, such as posters and billboards. It can also create desktop organizers and thank you cards. You can even create spiral-bound books using this process.
Hard-bound printing can be done on a digital printing press, which means you can produce your books with short turnaround times. Using this technology makes hard cover books affordable, while still providing a high-quality look and feel.
You can also print a hardcover book in a variety of colors and sizes, including wide widths. It’s a perfect option for children’s books, cookbooks, and novels. You can even make your hardcover book in tall heights, which provides a more substantial look.
Often used for books and journals, spiral binding is a durable and affordable way to put together multiple pages. It is also an easy way to make your book lay flat. Depending on the material used, spirals can hold a variety of paper sizes and weights.
The plastic spine of a spiral bound book is extremely durable and can withstand a lot of use. These books are great for notebooks, reference materials, and workbooks. They also make a great addition to any book collection.
Spiral binding works by threading a durable plastic coil through holes that have been punched in the cover of the book. The coil is then crimped at both ends to prevent it from unraveling. It is then inserted into a binding machine, which rolls it through the punched holes and creates a secure bond between the pages.
While spiral binding is easy to use, it may not be the best method for daily use documents. This is especially true if the document will need to be updated frequently.
Whether you are looking for a booklet, catalog, or even a wall calendar, saddle stitch binding is one of the most affordable and efficient methods of binding. A professional printing company can prepare your materials for this type of binding, ensuring that your items will be ready for your customers.
Saddle stitching is a binding process that joins folded pages and covers together. The process uses wire staples to hold the pages together. It is ideal for booklets that have a low page count, and is often used for thin magazines and catalogs.
Saddle stitching is also an inexpensive option for short run production runs. This type of binding is ideal for newsletters, magazines, workbooks, coloring books, directories, and comic books.
While saddle stitching is an effective binding method for books with a low page count, it is not recommended for magazines or materials with a high page count. As more pages are added to the book, the pages protrude on the inside pages. This is known as “page creep.” Fortunately, this can be easily avoided by trimming your pages.
Choosing the right type of binding can make your document look more professional and functional. You need to decide what method of binding will suit your needs before you begin printing. Tape binding, also known as thermal glue strips, involves a strip of tape coated with thermoplastic glue and then glued to the cover of a book. This creates a strong, lasting bind. Tape binding is available in vinyl and linen finishes. The covers can be plain or printed.
Side stitch-binding, which is also known as permanent binding, requires staples that are sewn into the spine of a book. This is the most secure binding option available. The staples cannot be removed without cutting off the spine. This type of binding is also the most expensive.
Spiral binding is used to bind paperback books. It uses round holes and black or white plastic coils. It is often used for manuals, notebooks, and catalogs. It is also a common choice for self-publishing books and training materials.
