Be it short-run digital printing or volume litho printing we have binding options to suit your every need.
Below are some of the standard options available, but don’t let this limit you, we love to be challenged! If you have an idea that sits outside the norm then get in touch with us to discuss your needs! We can also offer binding techniques such as exposed section sewing with bespoke covers and much more!
Saddle-stitching – The printer’s term for stapling! Starting with as little as eight pages, this form of binding is suitable for brochures made of the same weight sheets inside and out (self covers) as well as those that have a thicker cover and thinner inside text pages (plus cover). Choose from standard silver wire or as an alternative we also offer copper stitching wire.
Perfect/PUR Binding – We offer both PUR (Polyurethane Reactive) and standard EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) for perfect bound brochures. PUR glue is the most durable binding glue available, offering design flexibility for any number of applications, including catalogues, brochures, books, instruction manuals and art books. PUR allows us to successfully bind materials which would not have previously been attempted using standard hot melt (EVA) glues. PUR adhesives cure by crosslinking via a chemical reaction with moisture contained in the paper stock or surrounding air. Once cured, the adhesive’s higher molecular weight provides a tough, pliable bond that is resistant to temperature extremes.
Wire Binding – Wire binding is the perfect solution for documents, reports and instruction manuals. The book will open flat and pages can open 180 degrees to keep the open document to the page size. Wire bound documents are punched on the edge and can allow for tabbed or folded sections to be collated in. Available up to A3 portrait or landscape in size and with a choice of wire shades plus options for Half Canadian or Full Canadian styles.
Screw Bound – Using nickel or brass binding screws of varying depths we can bind your document, brochure or report by drilling the sheets, creasing the covers and fastening with binding screws. Also a really great way for creating swatches with a single binding screw in a corner.
Case Binding – Case bound books can either be covered using printed paper or alternatively choose from a vast range of cloths and materials that really enhances the feel of the book. All materials can be foiled or screen printed to make your book really stand out. Book inner text pages are either PUR bound or section sewn with end papers applied before being cased into the book cover.
Singer Sewing – A great method for binding books and brochures that have a small page extent. Choose from a large selection of coloured thread to either match corporate colours or to make the sewing a stand out feature. Singer sewing can be on the side or along the center fold.
Layflat Binding – A revolutionary technique which allows print to flow seamlessly across a double page spread. Books and brochures lay completely flat once opened, allowing text and images to flow across pages without being interrupted by the joint of printed sections. This binding method is perfect for displaying images at their full potential.
Bespoke Binding – If you’ve got an idea for how you would like a book, brochure or document bound, get in touch with us to discuss your requirements. We are always looking for new and innovative ideas to push the boundaries of binding techniques.
