What are the main types of binding ?
Double-wire stitched: (stapled) – the most common and suitable for up to 48pp, possibly higher dependent on paper weight.
Wire-o-bound: (spiral binding) – suitable for short runs or for special effect.
Canadian bound: Wiro binding where the wire is mostly hidden by a wraparound spine.
Perfect bound: (glued spine) like a paperback book – 40pp minimum, variations such as “thread sewing” add strength.
Rivet bound: Using metal screws/rivets – for high quality, high impact items.
Ring bound: basically where the contents pages are 2 or 4 hole punched and inserted to a ring binder.
