There are a lot of ways your book can be bound, below are just a few of the most common ways we offer.


Bindings


Ideally, a book is something to be treasured by readers for years—read again and again over time. A beautiful and durable binding ensures your book will last. Whether hardcover or soft, we’ve got the perfect binding option for you.

The standard choice for most softcover books. This flexible, glued binding will stand the

test of time.

Case binding provides an elegant look with more durability than a perfect bound book.

Pages are commonly Smyth sewn bound which allows the pages to lay flat, without

havinga gutter in between the 2 page spreads.






Flexi Bound


Saddle stitching binding

Flexibound offers a higher perceived value than a traditional paperback and has better

protection for the inside text pages. It is commonly bound with Smyth sewn for layflat

ability.

 We offer perfect bindings for page counts over 16, while most other printers have a 

 minimum page count of 64. A perfect binding is a more durable option for paperback

 children’s books.






Coil Bound (Plastic)

This is an even sturdier version of the single spiral option, great for books with coated 

paper that will often be handled.


A popular choice for workbooks, journals, and cookbooks. A continuous coil of either 

pewter or plastic is spun through holes along the edge of the spine.

Wire-O Binding, also known as Twin Loop, Double-Loop, Double-O, Duo-Wire, or simply

Wire Binding, is an attractive method for joining the pages and cover of a bound 

document.

The book is bound with either wire-o or coil binding and concealed with hard covers.

The spine can be finished with a square or round back.








Board Book Binding

Side Sewn


Extra thick cardboards are mounted together and usually finished with round corners.

Pages are be able to layflat.

Side-sewn bindings are particularly well suited to children’s and photo books, as well as

other thin-cased projects. As the name implies, a fiber thread is used to sew through the

paper stack, which results in a secure binding.
