Deciding on the perfect binding technique makes a huge impact on the overall finish of your booklet. If you choose a method that doesn’t fit the needs of your book, then it will not stand out from other normal books. So, here are some binding methods that you can use to bind your books.
· Plastic Comb Binding
The first method in our list is the comb binding method, which you might have heard about in recent years. The plastic comb in this method represents the spine, which is made up of a plastic strip with comb-like teeth hold the pages in place by curl around each other. If you want your book to open flat, then plastic comb binding is the perfect method.
It is ideal for cookbooks, manuals, and other books that are required to be open flat so that they can read easily. In plastic comb binding, you’ll have to punch holes in the paper to insert the spine, for which you need to purchase a pouch laminator.
· Spiral Coil Binding
This is the most common bookbinding method that is also known as Colour Coil. In this method, holes are punched in the edges of the pages, and then a wire is wound up through those holes. This process is almost similar to the common wire-bound notebook method. However, in spiral coil binding, you can choose from a variety of colours.
Also, either you can select plastic spiral coils or wires that are coated in plastic. Similar to plastic coil binding, this method also requires punching holes in the pages, later you can insert the wire either by hand or with a special tool. With the spiral binding method, your book will lay flat and can be flipped completely for extra functionality.
· Twin-Loop Binding
If you want a more elegant and stylish look than the previously mentioned methods, the twin-loop binding is the right technique for it. It is also known as double-loop and wire-o binding method. Though it is highly used for binding thick cardboard covers, which makes it a perfect fit for binding journals, address book, and art and photography collections. Just like other methods, you’ll have to punch holes in the booklet, and then insert the wire with a special tool in the twin-loop binding method.
· Thermal Binding
If none of the above methods suits your needs, then the perfect binding method for you is Thermal binding method. If you’re a keen observer, then you might have noticed this style on hardcover and soft-cover books. Many users often find it counterintuitive, but it is the most permanent and elegant binding method.
Also, it requires minimal efforts to bind a book. You have to place the pages inside the cover, and then put the cover on the spine in a thermal binding machine that will heat up the glue strip in the cover. The binding process will hardly take 30 seconds to complete, and once it is complete, you’ll have a permanently bound booklet. Also, this method doesn’t require any punch holes.
Mentioned above are some of the most helpful binding techniques. Though all these processes include some efforts, you can make it easy for yourself by using binding machines. You can avail a variety of binding devices from Binding Outlet based on your requirements.
