Binding Types Explained
Most books for educational organisations are either saddle stitch bound or perfect bound.
Perfect Binding. Is great for higher value books where presentation is important, longer documents (up to approximately 800 pages), and textbooks. It is durable and a very easy document to read from. For example:
- School Magazines
- Conference Books
- Text Books
Saddle Stitch Binding. A very practical booklet, where low costs or usability is important, great for writing in or to be left open (laid flat) to follow instructions whilst working on something else. For example:
- Exam booklets
- Course books
Spiral Binding. Another lay flat option, It is usually a similar price to perfect binding and more expensive than saddle stitch due to the high labour component. But a great option for traditional books such as:
- Fundraising cook books/recipe books
- School diaries
- Work books and teachers guides
