How to Choose the Best Company for Binder Printing


Binder printing
gets its name from the way in which individual sheets of books or notes are fastened together. All print pieces remain flat as a result of the binding process. It is instrumental to make any book completely functional. However, not every company that prints the book necessarily has the best facilities to bind it as well. The type of paper being used for binding is also dependent on the kind of printing project.

Aesthetics are Very Important

Not every company which provides binder printing and book printing services can provide excellent results. It is natural for every publishing company to get excellent prints for book covers. These covers are responsible for motivating buyers to buy the books. Overall, good quality of work is responsible for the cover, the inside pages of a book, and its overall success. The easiest way to notice quality is in the case of the printing paper.

Quick Turnaround Time

Different factors are able to determine how quickly printing and binding can be done. One of these factors is the availability of a large number of staff and fast machines, which enable the outputs to be delivered within 24 hours. Depending on the business requirement, it becomes necessary to choose the most appropriate option. However, even if books run into hundreds of papers, even the best companies do not take more than 72 hours.

Suitable Prices

The worth of any service is determined on the basis of their price. What matters is that a suitable mix of quality and price is made available. The price of binding and printing needs to be known, and if it does not match the average range, it would be best to choose another vendor. Even if the price is higher, there needs to be a valid justification for the same. Also, in case the price is too low and it is not promotional, there may be something wrong.

A lot of people prefer to have e-books these days in place of bound books as the latter tend to fall apart. This is not completely true, and is likely to happen only when there has been shoddy workmanship.

Print Binding Methods

Book publishers would benefit by getting to know about the following print binding methods:

  • Spiral Binding – This single piece of plastic coil makes a full circle through punch holes at the edge of every page. Such coils do not lose their shape and are available in a variety of colors. This method is suitable for almost all paper types.
  • Perfect Binding – This popular method is used for magazines, paperback books, and other kinds of soft cover books. Pages remain glued to the spine or cover.
  • Comb Binding – C-shaped plastic spines help to bind pages together here. The spine can be imprinted with a title in this method. This technique is also suitable for different types of paper.

Lay-Flat Binding – The book is kept flat on a table when opened, making it perfect for manuals and cookbooks. This method is relatively more expensive than the others.
