Infinite Potential Explored
Saddle Stitch Binding
Magazines, comic books, and brochures are all common examples of saddle stitch binding, one of the most popular book binding methods available. This is an economical and sleek binding option, where folded sheets of paper are nested together and attached by stables through the fold.
You’ll often find perfect binding on high end magazines, large books, manuals, and other soft cover materials. Perfect binding is the process of gluing perfectly trimmed pages to the inside of a book’s spine. This binding method will provide sharp, classy and durable results. By choosing perfect binding, you are choosing to elevate your piece with a luxurious finish.
Coil binding is a popular solution for workbooks, reports, and other desktop publications that will be distributed in a classroom or boardroom. Not only is it cost effective, coil binding can be customized with your preferred size and colour. Coil binding is a durable binding solution that opens flat with a 360-degree rotation. Our team can work with you to select the perfect coil for your project!
Looking for a more sophisticated version of the standard coil bind? Wire-O Binding, also known as Twin Loop, Double Loop, Double-O, Duo-Wire or simply Wire Binding is a popular method for professional publications. This method uses pre-formed pairs of wire loops that run along a C-shaped unit and are clamped closed until they form a perfect circle, thus securing the cover and pages. Wire-O binding produces a very impressive final document that can accommodate pages and inserts of varying thicknesses, including dividers or index tabs.
Chicago Screw Binding
Using a single screw to anchor a collection of sheets rather than glue or staples creates a substantial and durable package. The chicago screw binding method can be used on hard or soft cover materials and is ideal for binding together sample books, architectural and engineering drawings, menus, photo albums, swatch books, leather goods, and other materials. A variety of sizes and colours are available to ensure the binding matches your brand.
If you’ve used a tear-off notepad, you’re familiar with pad binding, a common and recognizable binding method. Blank or lined pages are piled on a cardboard backing, painted with glue, and clamped down, creating a pad with easily-removed pages. Notepads are an excellent marketing tool when distributed to clients for their daily use.
Side Sewn Binding
Books bound with the side-sewn method give a high-end, unique look and feel, perfect for special occasions and smaller quantities such as annual reports or anniversary booklets. coloured stitching is visible through the book to hold it together rather than glue or staples.
Belly Band Binding
Decorative, yet economic. Belly band binding (sometimes called a “sleeve”) holds multiple sheets together, keeps books shut, and can wrap other products and packaging. It’s typically used in initial product presentations and distributions to keep the material safely together while displaying your company’s brand.
Tab binding can be used in addition to coil bound or wire-o bound documents, providing an easy way to organize and jump between sections of a large document without the use of a table of contents or having to flip through to find information.
When the printing process is complete, collating is the gathering and arranging of individual sheets or components into the correct sequence. This is when booklet pages are put in order prior to binding or to create consistent, logical sheet sets for presentation folders or other distributions. Our operators utilize a collating machine to ensure all components are collated correctly, every time.
Your printed business essentials can beautifully and usefully represent your brand, no matter where they’re found! From your office straight into the hands of your customers and potential clients, these oft-overlooked elements not only communicate your products and services, but can play a large role in establishing top of mind awareness.
