BINDING STYLES

We offer a whole range of binding solutions for your print work. Listed below are the more specific binding that we specialise in, as well as offering the more traditional forms of binding such as Saddle Stitching and Perfect Binding.

 

WIRO BINDING


Standard
Most common method where front and back covers are bound as separate pieces with text.
 
Calendars
Wire binding for calendars with a thumb cut and calendar hanger or for use as desk calendars.

Easel
Has a freestanding triangular cover to stand the document upright.
  Reverse Binding
Allows for the cover to be extended in order to view a large image area.

Full Canadian
A square back where the wiro is exposed only on the front and back cover, not on the spine.
  Cased In
Standard wiro binding with a hard front and back cover, with spine.

Half Canadian
The wire is partially hidden again and is visible on the back cover only.
 

Wires available in a variety of standard colours:


COIL BINDING

Similar to Wiro binding, this method offers a stonger and more flexible wire. Unlike traditional Wiro binding the coil will flex back into shape if twisted or warped. Suitable for schools and nurseries for example where safety is paramount. Up to 45 colours are available!

  • Standard colours: Black, White, Green, Red, Blue, Clear + many more!
  • Max capacity: 25mm
  • Bespoke colours made to order

METAL BINDING

A relatively new and innovative form of binding, the pages are bound together using a metal channel. Linen and Mundial covers come with matching metal channels. Foil Blocking can be added to the covers too!

  • Cover Styles: Hard Back / Linen / Mundial
  • Max Capacity: 32mm
  • Sizes: A5 portrait, A4 portait and landscape, A3 portrait

PERFECT BINDING

Adhesive form of binding where folded sections are glued together and bound with a cover to form a solid spine.Can also be used in digital work, binding loose sheets rather than folded sections


CASE BINDING


A form of binding using glue to hold sections together into a case made of board covered with paper, fabric, plastic or leather to form a hardbound book. Case bound books are available in both round and square back formats.

Printed sheets are folded into sections then collated and/or sewn by machine, the edges are then trimmed to form a book block. Endpapers are then attached to the first and last sections of the book block. These are also called cloth edition, hard bind or hard cover.


SADDLE STITCHING

A form of binding using glue to hold sections together into a case made of board covered with paper, fabric, plastic or leather to form a hardbound book. Case bound books are available in both round and square back formats.

Printed sheets are folded into sections then collated and/or sewn by machine, the edges are then trimmed to form a book block. Endpapers are then attached to the first and last sections of the book block. These are also called cloth edition, hard bind or hard cover.

The technical name for effectively stapling a brochure together. Sections are collated inside each other and stitched using wire, giving the same effect. As staples but giving a flatter appearance.


LOOP STITCHING

The same process as saddle stitching except the wire is formed to create a loop on the spineof the brochure where it is stitched. This allows you to insert a brochure into a ring binder and be able to open the brochure without removing it from the binder.
