Our team are highly skilled in a variety of book binding techniques, using both traditional and modern book binding methods.
Add a huge choice of cover materials, and finishing techniques such as foiling and debossing, and you have the means to create a truly beautiful end product.
We pride ourselves in being specialists in book binding and box making. We appreciate that sometimes understanding all of the techniques available can be a bit overwhelming, so we have tried to simplify and show the various different types of book binding below.
A softcover book binding method, a form of perfect binding, where the pages and cover are glued together.
Gets its name from the hard exterior ‘case’. Pages are sewn together in sections and attached to the inside of the case.
Books lay completely flat once opened, allowing text and images to flow seamlessly across the spread.
A decorative exposed stitching technique ideal for binding single sheets of paper, with front and back covers.
Alternative to case binding, where boards are attached to the front cover without encasing the spine, leaving the spine exposed.
Where spine is covered in a different material to the front and back covers – it is usually 1/4 spine and 3/4 cover, usually different materials are used to create a creative finish.
Where pages are held in place between two outer cases. Post screws can be either external or internal.
Wiro Binding and Coil Binding are forms of binding which secure documents professionally and allow pages to lay flat when opened.
A means of ring binding in which pages are bound together by either 2D or 4D metal rings.
Apart from gluing there are a number of different styles of stitching pages together, each used for different applications, but all providing another creative way to improve the overall look of your project.
