We offer a range of in-house binding services.
This is a method of binding where the folded pages are stitched through the spine from the outside using wire staples. We recommend limiting saddle stitch to documents under 64 pages in length. These should be set up in multiples or signatures of four (4, 8, 12, 16, etc.). The staples will be positioned in the middle spread.
This is a type of binding where the edges of the sheets are glued to the cover, just like a telephone book. We recommend this type of binding for larger books over 48 pages in length. Please note the margins in the spine are quite large, and this needs to be allowed for in the design.
When you need a stronger adhesive bond on your spine, you go for polyurethane reactive (or simply PUR) binding. It’s great for high use books and books that will be used for years to come like annual reports. So why choose PUR over Perfect? It is an extremely strong binding agent – however you will need to allow 24hrs to cure.
This is also known as ‘wiro binding’. It’s a method of securing loose printed pages using single or double loop wire or plastic that fits into round or rectangular holes in the pages. We recommend spiral binding for blank notebooks and reports. Impact Digital stocks a wide range of plastic coils and metal wiros. Please note that broad spine margins need to be allowed for in the design. The book can consist of any number of pages.
Plastic coil binding
This is a sheet which is usually printed on one side only and then folded in half to form a four page uncut section. It can then be bound together using perfect binding or wiro/plastic coil. This is a premium method of binding, and can be used on small or large brochures or books.
