Our partner's bindery department creates the finished book printing and binding product.

They are experts in all major binding methods, including saddle-stich, side-stich, softbound / perfect bound and hardbound.
Softbound Book Binding
Softbound books are books with soft covers, typically paper (plain, varnished or laminated), or cover stock that is hot-foil stamped or silk-screened. To make a softbound book, the printed "signatures" are gathered, the spine is trimmed, cold or hot glue are appied to the exposed spine, the cover is applied and the product is trimmed to it's final size. (A "signature" is the name printers give to a printed sheet after it has been folded and prepared for binding). Common examples of softbound books are paperback novels, technical manuals and telephone books.
Harbound Book Binding
Hardbound books are books with rigid protective covers. The covers are typically made with cardboard covered by cloth, heavy papaer or sometimes leather. Hardbound books may have flexible sewn spines, which allow the book to lie flat on a surface when opened. Most modern commercial hardcover books are burst-bound, which uses a two-shot application of cold and hot glues to secure the gathered printed "signatures".
