Bindery

Got a booklet that you need printed? Then it probably needs some finishing done to it in the form of bindery. At Copy Central, we stock several different types of bindery options, and in many different sizes. Ask to see some samples of the binding options listed below. We even use a few binding choices not listed here, so feel free to ask us questions.

Spiral Binding

Utilizes a smooth round coil to hold pages together. Allows book to lie flat when open or pages can be turned all the way around to the back if desired. Wire is threaded through punched holes and then Ends are crimped to prevent wire slipping off. Spirals or coils are available in variety of colors.


Comb Binding

Economical method suitable for manuals and books that need to lay flat when open. Using rectangular holes punched through the document, the plastic comb?s rings are threaded through holes. Page edges at spine are covered by plastic comb.


Saddle Stitching

Probably the most common and economical binding method. Created by punching wire through the document?s outside spine, then bending the wire flat on the inside centre fold to grip all the pages. It may provide a similar look, but is not the same as stapling.


Perfect Binding

Sections of folded pages (signatures) have their spines trimmed off and roughed up to improve bonding with glue. All sections are collated and glued to its wrap-around cover. Cover is always scored on back and front, for ease of opening and less stress on spine.


Wire Binding

Highly popular Wire-O option uses formed wire that threads through punched holes. This allows books to lay flat when open. Wire loops are available in variety of colours to coordinate with cover colour. A durable option for a wide variety of project types.
