Binding printed materials refers to the process of joining loose sheets of pages together to form a magazine, book, or any multi-page printed piece. For example, book binding is the process of assembling and securing written or printed pages within a cover. Typically, the cover is thicker than the interior pages to ensure durability in the finished book.
We use a common bookbinding technique called perfect binding, in which we bind the cover and pages along the spine using adhesive. This is a fast and efficient method that can easily handle large production volume. It is also known as adhesive bind, cut-back bind, glue bind, paper bind, patent bind, perfecting bind, soft bind and soft cover.
We use Planatol Planamelt R, the latest super EVA adhesive that offers considerably higher cohesiveness than traditional EVA hotmelts. In some cases, it can even match the results of a PUR system. It is perfect for thick and various paper grades and its adhesion to difficult surfaces as well as its very good layflat characteristics are remarkable.

Wiro Binding / Wire Binding
First, we use a popular commercial book binding method called wire binding, also known as twin loop wire, wire-o, double loop wire, double-o, ring wire and wirebind. Specifically, this method involves punching pages and inserting them onto a “C” shaped spine, then using a wire closer to squeeze the spine until it becomes round. As a result, documents that are bound with wire binding will lay completely flat on a desk and allow for 360 degree rotation of the bound pages.
Saddle Stitch is form of binding in which all pages are bound into the spine (saddle) of folded printed matter. Examples includes booklets, catalogues, brochures, and manuals using wire staples. Also called pamphlet stitch, saddle wire and stitch bind.
Stapling / Corner Stapling
Corner Staple refers to a document binding method in which sheets are gathered and then stapled on the top left with staples. The staples pass through the documents from the outside and are clinched between the top left pages.
Padding is a method used to hold books or sets together by an adhesive compound spread across the edge of the sheets. Example of individual padded sets include NCR (No Carbon Required) and Notepads.
Quarter Binding (Quarter-Bound) - Docket Books
Quarter binding is a type of bookbinding where the spine is bound in one material and the cover in another. For example, it can consist of leather and paper, leather and cloth, cloth and paper, vellum and paper, or even vellum tips at the corners. In fine bindings, leather and paper, as well as vellum and paper, are the most common choices.
