Perfect Binding

Gives a result similar to paperback books. National Geographic is one example of this type. Paperback or soft cover books are also normally bound using perfect binding. They usually consist of various sections with a cover made from heavier paper, glued together at the spine with a strong flexible glue. The sections are rough-cut in the back to make them absorb the hot glue. The other three sides are then face trimmed. This is what allows the magazine or paperback book to be opened ..

Calendar Tinning

Calendar tinning is the process of reinforcing the top and/or bottom edges of a hanging calendar with a metal strip, that is wrapped and crimped firmly to the sheet. An optional hanger can be applied to the top edge for hanging. This process prevents the corners and edges from curling and helps the calendar to hang flat.

We handle everything from 11” up to 30” width ..

The greatest feature of Wire-O binding: books to lay flat when opened, and fold 360 degrees for single-hand use (a property of all mechanical binding styles). Ideal for products such as instruction manuals, cookbooks, calendars and display and promotional materials.

Since Wire-O binding does not “step up” when opened, images can seamlessly cross over the gutter. Semi-concealed, fully-concealed and mixed stocks; wraparound covers; pockets; foldouts and index tabs can all be incorporated into Wire-O-bound products for ..
