What types of binding do you offer?

For multipage formats, we offer 3 different binding types: Perfect/glue bind, Stitched and Wire-o.

Perfect/glue bind

In perfect/glue binding pages are glued at the spine like a common book format. Perfect bind is supported between 28 and 250 pages for multiples of 2 (i.e. 28, 30, 32, ..., 250) and for thicker papers. For this kind of format, it is important to create the spine according to our requirements.

 

Saddle-stitched

In saddle stitch binding folded sheets are gathered one inside the other and stapled at the fold line with wire staples. Stitched binding is supported between 8 and 52 pages, page count must be multiple of 4 (i.e. 8, 12, 16,..., 52) and for thinner papers.

 

Wire-o

In wire-o binding pages are joined by pre-made wire loops threaded through holes punched in the pages. The wires are then closed to form a circle. This means that in a wire-o bound document pages can fold back on themselves fully. Wire-o binding is supported between 28 and 150 pages,  page count must be multiple of 2 (i.e. 28, 30, 32, ..., 150).
