Binding Capabilities

Click any of the headings for a close-up view of the binding format:

  • Casebound
  • Cloth, Leather, imitation, 3 piece covers, etc...with wide range of headband and ribbon materials, as well as foil and embossing on spine and front cover.

  • PLC (Printed Laminated Cover) Casebound
  • A casebound book using printed sheet as cover wrap, rather than cloth or other cover material. PLC cover image is often a duplicate of jacket image, or this style also stands on its own without the need for a jacket.

  • Quarterbound
  • A variation of casebinding...PLC (printed laminated cover), or other cover material, with cloth wraparound spine.

  • Dutch Binding
  • Similar to casebinding (PLC cover, endsheets), but with a flexible soft cover (600gsm for example). Usually finished with roundback spine.

  • Perfect Bound
  • Signatures are bound into cover using high strength flexible adhesive.

  • Smyth Sewn
  • Provides added strength and durability over standard Perfect Binding by sewing signatures together as well as gluing.

  • Board Book Binding
  • We use only the finest quality imported Kappa Board, either white or grey, virtually eliminating any possibility of warping. Very durable, popular format for children's books.

  • Center Sewn
  • Utilize film imposed for saddle stitching without having to re-strip or output new film. Signatures are "saddled" as in saddle stitching, than thread sewn.

  • Wire-O or Twin Ring Binding
  • Good choice for Journals, Calendars, Diaries, Cookbooks, or any other books that benefit from folding back completely.

  • Concealed Wire-O: Squareback or Roundback
  • The wire loops are concealed, or semi-concealed, by the cover. This can be a rounded spine to conform with the wire shape, or squareback.

  • External Lay-Flat Wire-O
  • Another creative use of Wire-O binding. This style has the wire partially inside and outside of the cover and allows the book to be opened up flat.

  • Wire-O with Squareback Spine
  • Another variation using Wire-O binding. This style has the cover wrapping the spine inside the wire for a more finished look, but spine copy may be obstructed.

  • Saddle Wire or Saddle Stitching
  • Very inexpensive. Great for catalogs and brochures.

  • Die Cutting
  • Rounded corners, elaborate shapes, "kiss cutting", knockout holes, and more.

  • Notecard Boxes/Packaging
  • Notecard and Postcard boxes, game boxes, book sleeves, and packaging for all products and uses.

  • Tip-Ins
  • Automated and manual tip-ins of individual pages, full signatures, non printed objects, pouches and envelopes, and more.

  • Gatefolds
  • Simple 3 panel to elaborate multi-panel, both tip-ins and bind-ins.

  • Collating
  • Automated and manual collating of assorted sizes and formats for binding and packaging.

  • Handwork
  • From hand application of glitter and foils, to complete assembly of "pop-up" books, we do it all.
