You have many options to choose from when we bind your booklets, reports, presentations, manuals, books or catalogs.
Here are some of the more popular binding services we offer.
- Saddle stitched - Ideal for projects with 8 to 48 pages. 2 staples on the fold bind the pages together.
- Spiral or coil binding - Round plastic coils used for books that you need to lay flat when opened. Durable and strong, this binding method is often used for documents that need to be mailed.
- Comb binding - The classic round plastic bindings used for books up to 400 pages. Pages can be added or removed easily.
- Wire O or double loop binding - Wire-bound materials can look extremely creative when a colorful wire is used. Pages will lay flat when book is opened.
- Perfect binding - The type of binding used on paperback books.
- Stapled - We use a machine to apply the staple in the corner of a sheaf of papers to hold them together firmly.
- We also provide printed or plain covers, clear acetate covers, and other types of bindings for specialty projects.
Comb binding is one of the many ways to secure pages together into a book. This method utilizes round plastic spines, 19 rings, and a hole puncher that makes rectangular holes. Comb binding is sometimes referred to as plastic-comb binding or spiral-comb binding, too. Our printing firm has a large variety of different-sized comb bindings, ranging from 3/16 of an inch (for 10 sheets of 20# paper) up to 2 inches (for 400 sheets of 20 pound paper). We can also provide a variety of different colors to enhance the appearance of your project.
Coil binding, also known as spiral binding, is a commonly used bookbinding style for creating documents, reports, presentations, and proposals. This binding style is known by a number of names, including spiral coil, color coil, ez-coil, plastic coil, spiral binding, plastikoil and coilbind. Documents bound with spiral coil have the ability to open flat on the desk or table and offer 360° rotation for easier note-taking. Spiral-coil-bound spines are available in more colors and sizes than other binding styles. Please call us to learn about the many options we have available.
Perfect binding provides a result similar to that of a paperback book. The phone directory on your desktop is a common example. National Geographic would be another. At our printing firm, we get many requests to bind software manuals, instruction manuals, and many varieties of soft-covered books using perfect binding. We print the heavy-duty covers separately and attach them at the spine with a strong, flexible glue. We then trim the books on three sides to make them look clean and professional.
Stapling is one of the simplest – and most effective – methods of binding used today. In addition to stapling loose sheets together through the front of the page, we can saddle-stitch (staple through the spine) magazines and other multi-page items such as catalogs, annual reports, and newsletters.
Saddle-stitching is a sturdy, durable, and attractive binding option. The number of pages our saddle-stitching equipment can bind together varies depending on the weight of the paper used, but the results are the same every time: nice, clean, and professional.
Wire binding is one of the most popular commercial bookbinding methods used in business today. Known by a number of different names, including spiral notebook binding, twin loop wire, Wire-o, and double loop wire, wire-bound materials can look extremely creative when a colorful wire is used. We offer several different processes of wire binding. Although it is difficult to add or delete pages once a document has been wire-bound, almost everyone agrees that wire-bound documents look very, very nice.
