- Soft touch
2 wires are stapled through the spine of the collated text sections.
This is recommended for binding documents where use is limited and instant binding strength is required.
This process can be used in Case Bound and PUR bound books as the book lays completely flat when opened. Pages are printed single sided then laminated before being bonded together.
Folded text sections are threaded together, this adds strength and durability to the text before adding the cover Or they can be lefy exposed on the spine and this is called Exposed binding.
Round plastic spines are used to bind the pages together, varous colours and sizes available.
This method is the most durable glue for binding, offering longevity to the publication.
Coloured Tape is applied to the spine / hinge area.
Hard Case cover usually paper over board with End Papers.
Round Metal Spines are used to bind the pages together, various colours and sizes available.
Half Canadian Bind
The half-Canadian method has an extended cover that hides the wire in all places other than the book back. Wrapping around from front to back creates a printable spine, allowing the publication to sit on a shelf giving the impression of a perfect bound book whilst allowing the reader the big plus of being able to open it flat.
