Saddle Stitch Binding8-80 Pages
Saddle Stitching uses staples to cinch sheets of the paper in their center, creating a spine. It is the most simple and affordable of our binding options. Note that due to the staple being perpendicular to the pages, saddle stitch booklets do not fold flat.
Square Back Saddle Stitch Binding8-80 Sheets
Square Back Saddle Stitching is identical to saddle stitching, but an additional step is added to flatten the spine of the book, creating a more polished look. Square back saddle stitching is an aesthetic equivalent to perfect binding that comes as a significantly lower cost.
PUR Perfect Binding16-1000 Pages
Perfect Binding is achieved by applying glue to the interior of a book's spine to bind the pages together. The finished product is a durable, elegant, flat spined book.
Perfect Binding is best applied on books over 100 pages (50 sheets), as shorter documents can cause the adhesive to pool and bubble in the spine, resulting in a far-from-ideal finish. Catalogs, publications, presentations, and magazines are excellent candidates for perfect binding.
PUR (or Polyurethane Reactive) perfect binding is the slightly more expensive, yet durable option of our perfect binding offerings. Unlike our other option, EVA, PUR is a permanent adhesive that cannot be reheated and reapplied. PUR is also significantly more durable and flexible than EVA.
Coil / Spiral / Wire O8-8000 Pages
Coil, or Spiral, Binding is a punch-and-bind process that utilizes a plastic spiral to bind pages of a document together.
Wire-O binding is also a punch-and-bind process, however it uses a metal, twin looped metal wire to bind pages together. Wire-O binding has a more polished look than coil/spiral binding but, due to the spine's metal construction, is more prone to damage due to bending.
