Best Type of Book Binding for Your Printed Books in Boston MA

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 06, 2014

Book printing and binding are your last steps prior to publishing or submitting your work. The type of book binding usually depends on the function of the document you printed, its number of pages, and its author's budget.

Each type of book binding is designed for a different appearance and application. Here are 5 most common types of them:

Perfect binding
This type uses hot tape or a cloth strip of adhesives to bind the pages of the book together. This, often called as Thermal binding, is perfect for thick documents to be published. Often this is used in novels we buy on bookstores.

Plastic comb binding
Plastic combs are used to hold the pages together, allowing them to be opened flat. Often, the plastic combs can be removed and reattached. It is the simplest type next to saddle stitching. But its teeth-like plastic comb often break off, not holding up the pages for a longer time. This is though perfect for those who have said a collection of printed photos of something that are constantly updated.

Spiral binding
This type of book binding either uses coil or plastic wire which is pre-coiled and is flexible. The wire is inserted and twisted through small holes running along its spinal edge. Using this type allows users to open flat documents just like in plastic comb binding. Also, the pages can be wrapped around in full 360 degrees for easier copying and reading. This is often what we see on spiral notebooks.

Saddle Stitching
The pages are stapled in the middle to hold the pages in place. It is the most simple and economical type of book binding for thin publications such as comic books, manuals, magazines and booklets. But this is not recommended for bigger presentations.

Twin loop wire binding
This gives your documents not only a more durable bind but also a more professional feel. That is why this is perfect when doing product presentations or company proposals. But such elegance of the twin loop wire comes with a slightly more expensive price than simple coil or wire binding. Also, these wires might bend easily when heavier loads are laid on top of them.

Provide durability to your printed work. These are just a few of the options for binding you could choose from. Contact the Country Press, Inc. for more.
