Binding

Perfect Binding is the act of gluing print to a spin. This is better suited to books and documents with 50 content pages or more. There is no wire, no staple and no hole. Please note that 5-10mm of a page can disappear into the glued spine depending on the book thickness.

Stapling is the act of adding 1 or more staples to a document. This is a very cost effective binding method and suitable for brochures and booklets that are 20-40 pages in length. Please note stapling larger documents causes paper to bend and the booklet won't lie flat once finished.

Ring Binding is the act of drilling or punching multiple holes along one edge of a document and winding a wire or plastic spiral through the holes. This is much more versatile and cost effective. We stock metal, white and black spirals for ring binding.

Cone Binding is similar to ring binding but more suitable for larger documents. The spiral is fixed to a spine and thus much stronger and can support a document with hundreds of pages. This is a very cost effective alternative to perfect binding. We stock black and white cone binds.
