Manual Printing

Binding Types

Saddle Stitch Book printing

Saddle stitch is basically single sheets of paper, printed on both sides, collated in page number order, folded in half, then stapled through the fold with staples made of thin wire securing the sheets together and then trim the 3 sides to the desired finished size...

Perfect Bound Book printing

Perfect binding booklet printing is single sheets (text weight) paper printed on both sides and collated in page number order, one on top of the other, and gathered into a book block. The spine edge is ground off. The softcover (a thicker cardstock) is placed over and around the book block (interior pages) and attached by the application of a strong yet flexible PUR glue along the binding edge, creating a professional looking square spine that can be printed on.

Spiral Bound Book printing

Spiral Bound Book printing Spiral Binding is more durable than wire-o binding but does not have the professional look of a wire-o bound book. A spiral bound book uses a durable plastic coil which makes it an ideal option for spiral book binding that needs to lie flat and can fold or wrap back around themselves (360 degree) and are continually being referred to. The plastic coil allows for frequent use that does not damage the book binding coil. Spiral bound book printing is great for instruction and repair manuals, cookbooks, directories, handbooks, guides, and other reference materials. Spiral binding is excellent for wall calendars and planners can hang flat against the wall.

Wire-O Bound Book printing

Wire-O binding is for a more formal use and offers a more professional look than a spiral bound book. A wire-o bound book uses a metal wire. Unlike a perfect bound or saddle-stitched book, the open wire-o bound book will lie flat (180 degrees) for easy reference or they can fold or wrap back around themselves (360 degree) making it easier to handle and lays flat for easy reading while taking up minimal room on a desk or table.

Wire-o binding is an excellent style of binding commonly used for businesses to create professional-looking lay flat documents such as business reports, documents, calendars and other book types. Wire-o binding calendars are one of our most popular products. The pages flip easily and hang flat against the wall. Wall calendars are great for non-profit fundraising programs, promoting business and photography.

Easy process with fantastic service. Manuals turned out great and arrived quickly.

We went for some cost savings this year with 80# insides instead of 100# and really can't tell the difference. They still look great and feel good. The saddle stitching (stapled binding) works better, too, with less thickness overall and a bit less stiffness around the fold. (56 pages; 14 sheets)

Product is great! My manuals came out as expected. Clear printing no smuging. The covers are nice and thick. Will definitely order again.

They are good. The last page was supposed to be a tear away standard stock however is still thick paper. It's fine however would have been better to reduce for filing purposes.
