Binding

Binding

Binding can make all the difference to a final design aesthetic. From classic approaches to bespoke finishes, we’re constantly coming-up with new binding & folding techniques to ensure they compliment the print.

Singer Sewing

Ideal for binding books and brochures that have a small page extent. Choose from a large selection of coloured thread to match a corporate palette or clash the colours to achieve stand out. Singer sewing can be completed on the side or along the centre fold.

Perfect 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 have not been previously possible using standard glues.

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, as well as those that have a thicker cover and thinner inside text pages. Choose from standard silver, copper, brass plus a our range of coloured wires including yellow, red, blue, white and black.

Case Binding

Case bound books can be covered using printed paper or choose from a vast range of fabrics and materials to enhance 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.

Swiss Bound

Swiss binding is a clever alternative to case and soft binding which allows the spine and front cover of the book to lay flat. To achieve this, the page block is perfectly bound to the inside back cover with a strip of binding tape. The spine can then be covered with fabric tape or the sewing detail left exposed for a more contemporary look.

Screw Bound

This technique uses nickel or brass binding screws of varying depths to bind the brochure or report by drilling the sheets, creasing the covers and fastening with binding screws. Also ideal for creating swatches with a single binding screw in a corner.

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 for uninterrupted print across the jointed sections. This binding method is perfect for displaying images at their full potential.
