5. You get to decide the binding type used.

There are many ways you can choose to bind your book. We offer saddle-stitch binding, perfect binding, pur binding, 3 ring binding, coil binding, hard cover binding, as well as turned edge binding. Saddle stitch binding is one of the most popular bookbinding methods we offer. We use this method for a variety of book types including catalogs, manuals, booklets, programs, multi-page brochures, price and part lists, newsletters, comic books, coloring books, magazines and periodicals, wall calendars, mailers, etc. Perfect Bindingis a widely used soft cover bookbinding method. With this method, the pages and cover are glued together at the spine with a strong yet flexible thermal glue. The other three sides of the book are then trimmed as needed to give them clean "perfect" edges. Spiral Binding and Coil Bindingare interchangeable terms for the same book binding method. This popular method joins the pages and cover of a book using a durable plastic coil. The coil is inserted and twisted through small holes punched along the spinal edge of the book's cover and pages. Hardcover Books, also known as hardback, hardbound, or casebound books, have a thick protective cover that is constructed from dense paperboard. A Ringed Binder, such as the popular 3-Ring Binder, is a very common method for joining separate pages into book form. Binders can be completely custom-made, or custom-printed front and spine sections can be slipped into standard clearview-style binders.Turned-Edge Binders offer function plus an extremely prestigious look and feel. Hence, turned-edge binders are the preferred option to promote an organization's professional image.
