Binding Services That Bring Your Printing Together
Print binding is the way individual sheets of paper are fastened together to create your final product. At Einstein there are several styles of finishing and binding you can choose from for your books, booklets, catalogs, manuals and publications.
Sometimes it’s not easy to know which one is right for your project, as they differ in appearance, cost, durability, and function. Don’t get tied down with bindery decisions! We will always be here to explain your options and help recommend a solution, but we’re also here to help you be a more informed print buyer. Here are some guidelines on choosing the right binding style that will work for your print project.
Saddle StitchSaddle stitching is stapling a booklet, magazine, or other printed piece together on the spine. It’s most effective when used for binding 64 or fewer pages. It’s also a very cost-effective bindery method.
Coil / Spiral BindingCoil binding or spiral binding is a popular method that joins the pages of a book together using a durable plastic or metal coil shaped like a spring and inserted into small holes punched into the document. This is a great method for booklets or catalogs that are referenced often, as the coil doesn’t damage the binding and allows the book to easily lay flat or fold completely back on itself.
Comb BindingIn comb binding, round plastic spines (or combs) are inserted into a series of rectangular holes that have been punched into the printed booklet. A book that has been comb bound can be opened to lay flat, but can’t be opened to 360 degrees. Comb binding also allows for adding or removing pages.
Tape binding uses strips of tape lined with heat or pressure activated adhesive. Applied to the spine of a stack of paper, it binds the pages together. This cost-efficient method stacks flat and provides a professional, finished presentation and is easy to file and mail.
