Types of Document Binding
Wire binding is a popular option for documents that need to lie completely flat when opened, such as an instruction manual. It uses a C-shaped wire spine which holds punched sheets of paper together by looping through punched holes in the paper. It also allows for complete rotation of the pages around the spine.
This method looks modern and high tech and has durability as its main advantage. The finished book is easy to read and lies flat when open.
Comb binding follows a similar method, using round plastic spines through rectangular punched holes in the paper. Comb binding spines tend to be less rigid than wire spines, so may be suited to lighter-weight documents.
The plastic comb is crush resistant and will last & last. It should be noted that the document is not permanently sealed, and potential pages could be added or taken away.
Saddle Stitch Binding
For smaller documents, saddle stitch binding may be more appropriate. It is useful for creating booklet-sized publications such as newsletters and calendars. Sheets of paper are folded so that the fold forms the spine and then staples are placed in the fold to hold the sheets together.
The document sheets are normally folded and bound with staples along it’s folded edge. This method is very popular with newsletters and brochures.
Perfect binding is the method now most associated with books. It involves using an adhesive to attach a paper cover to the spine of assembled printed sheets. This method is commonly used for paperback books but is also appropriate for other big documents requiring a professional finish.
Almost all of the paperbacks in the average bookshop are perfect bound. They have a square, printed spine and the cover is usually made from paper or cardstock that is heavier than the interior pages.
