Types of Binding
Books are bound with glue first, then trimmed to perfection. Perfect binding, also known as adhesive binding, is an adhesive based book-binding technique, and is one of the most cost efficient ways to produce books, at the cost of durability. Single leaves are jogged until flush, then the book spine is glued with PUR(polyurethane reactive).
Books are bound with a single plastic coil. Coil binding is a form of book binding which is best suited for creating presentations, reports, notebooks, and other forms of easily accessible media. Coil binding is also often referred to as spiral binding, color coil, ez-coil, plastic coil, and helical coil. Coil binding offers 360 degrees of rotation by the paper bound in it, making it optimal for note taking
and document reading.
Books are bound with a metal double twin-loop clamp. Wire Binding is a commonly used book binding method that is known by many different names, such as twin loop wire, wire-o, double loop wire, double-o, ring wire, and wirebind. Like coil binding, wire binding allows for 360 degree rotation of the bound content.
Saddle Stitch Binding
Books are bound by the driving of staples through the centerfold of a group of pages. This form of binding is most appropriate for small booklets, brochures, and catalogs up to 96 pages, This method should not be confused with side-stitching, a similiar, but older method of bookbinding.
