Type of Binding

Type of Binding

There are many types of binding in the market and we have listed down 10 commonly used binding style through our experience.

SADDLE STITCH BINDING (Images)

Cover with content are nested one with-in the other and hung over a chain or "saddle". Covers are scored and folded on the same machine and then laid on top of the content. Cover and content are wire stitched (stapled) at the center of the spine, and then trimmed.

Cover and individual pages or content are collated and assembled into a stack and then wire stitched (stapled) at the bound edge.


PERFECT BINDING (Images)

Content are gathered in a stack rather than nested. The spine side of the stack is milled to remove the folded edges. Melted adhesive is applied along the spine edges of the pages. the cover is applied while the glue is hot and wrapped around the book. the book is trimmed on a three-knife trimmer.


SCREW & POST BINDING (RIVET BINDING) (Images)

Cover and content or individual pages are collated and assembled in a stack and trimmed on all sides, then drilled and fastened together with posts held on by screws. Screws can be unscrewed to add or remove pages as needed.


SPIRAL & DOUBLE-LOOP WIRE BINDING (WIRE O BINDING) (Images)

Trimmed covers and individual pages are assembled, collated, and held together by a spiraled piece of plastic, wire, or doubled wire inserted into drilled holes.


SEWN BINDING (Images)

Sewn binding is usually used in conjunction with hard cover binding. The book block, or sections of the book block are sewn together prior to the addition of the cover. This makes for a very sturdy book. The biggest disadvantage to sewn binding is that it requires specialized, expensive equipment, and, when done on a custom basis, is a slow process.


TAPE BINDING (Images)

Content and covers are assembled, collated, and trimmed on all sides. A strip of flexible cloth tape that contains glue is applied on the edges of the spine and heated. The glue melts and spreads, gluing the covers and signatures together.


RING BINDING (Images)

Trimmed covers and individual pages are assembled, collated, and held together by individual rings. Or individual pages are assembled, collated, and inserted into a binder with rings. Rings and binders come in a variety of sizes and colors. Pages can be added or subtracted as needed.


PLASTIC COMB BINDING (Images)

Trimmed covers and individual pages are assembled, collated, and held together by a plastic comb that opened, inserted into drilled / punched holes, and then closed. Comb can be opened to insert more pages as needed.


CASE BINDING (Images)

Gathered content are assembled and sewn along the spine. The sewn book block is then glued on the spine and trimmed on the three sides. The trimmed book block is then glued to an outer cover or case, which is manufactured separately. The case is held to the book block by end-sheet attached to the first and last content and glued to the inside covers.
