Binding Services

Several binding techniques are available:

Stapling - just a few loose A4 pages to bind? Nothing is simpler than a simple staple in the upper left-hand corner! Stapling is the most cost effective and frequently selected method of binding small documents together.

Perfect binding - uses a flexible adhesive to join a cover to the spine of a collated document where the folded sections of pages have had the binding edge pre-trimmed. Modern PUR binding uses polyurethane resin glue which gives strength as strong, if not stronger, than ordinary Burst Binding.

Saddle Stitching - is the quickest, most cost effective form of binding for thin to medium thickness booklet documents. Saddle Stitching involves running a line of staples, usually 2 or 3, along the spine of the document. Saddle Stitch bound documents have the advantage of being able to be laid open flat.

Wire or Comb - these methods involve pre-drilling or hole punching through the collated and trimmed pages, through which a pre-manufactured bind, usually made of plastic or wire, is threaded. This bind method is often used in quick turn-around documents as the processing time is very efficient and does not require specialist services.

Thermal Binding - for short run fast binding of smaller A4 documents, thermal is an attractive option using an adhesive spine with a clear cover and opaque back. Thermal binding is also ideal when custom covers and backs are desired in a traditional book format.
