The ultimate choice for books that have a long shelf life or that receive heavy usage. With case binding, the pages of the book are arranged in signatures and sewn or stitched together. Then, hard covers made of cloth, vinyl, or leather over cardboard are attached to the book using glued-on end sheets.
Covers can then be foil stamped with original artwork or title.
Wire-O involves taking a preformed C shaped wire binding, placing the spine through the holes on the edge of the document and using a wire closer to close the C shape into a round binding element. This is thought to be one of the most refined binding styles available on the market and is popular with real estate offices, architects, engineers and marketing departments.
Spiral binding is the process of binding pages together with a wire or plastic coil that is inserted into holes along the edge of paper pages. There are also a variety of colors available for spiral binding and is effective for documents up to about 300 pages.
Catalogs, booklets, cookbooks, calendars, or manuals are generally products that would use spiral binding.
