Binding

Imagination Graphics has a finishing department with a large section dedicated to the Binding process.

Binding in printing is the process of binding the loose sheets of printed pages that constitute the magazine, book or any printed piece with multiple pages. For book bindery for instance, is the process of assembling and securing written or printed pages within a cover. In most cases, the cover is thicker than the interior pages to provide durability to the finished book.

Imagination Graphics - Perfecting Binding Books

Perfect Binding

Perfect binding is a common bookbinding technique used in which the cover and pages are bound along the spine using adhesive. This is a fast method of binding books that can be easily scaled up to meet the production volume. Also called adhesive bind, cut-back bind, glue bind, paper bind, patent bind, perfecting bind, soft bind and soft cover.

Here at Imagination Graphics we use Planatol Planamelt R, the very latest super EVA offering considerably higher cohesiveness than adhesive bindings with common EVA hotmelts – in some cases the results are even on the level of a PUR system. It is perfect for thick and different paper grades and the adhesion to difficult surfaces as well as the very good layflat characteristics are remarkable.

• Very good lay-flat characteristics.

• Very good pull resistance.

• Can be used for virtually all paper types.

• Colourless to light yellow.

• Outstanding strength.

Imagination Graphics WiroBinding - White and Black

Wiro Binding / Wire Binding

Wire binding is a popular commercial book binding method and is known by several different names including twin loop wire, wire-o, double loop wire, double-o, ring wire and wirebind. This binding method inserts the punched pages onto a "C" shaped spine and then use a wire closer to squeeze the spine until it is round. Documents that are bound with wire binding will open completely flat on a desk and allow for 360 degree rotation of bound pages.

Padding

Padding is a method used to hold books or sets together by an adhesive compound spread across the edge of the sheets. NCR (No Carbon Required) and Notepads are an example of individual padded sets.

Quarter Binding (Quarter-Bound) - Docket Books

A quarter binding may consist of leather and paper, leather and cloth, cloth and paper, vellum and paper (with or without vellum tips at the corners), etc. In fine bindings, leather and paper, as well as vellum and paper, are the most common quarter bindings.
