Typically the standard method for binding a hardcover book, also used for our short-run hardcover binding. Using either hotmelt or PUR glue, signatures are stacked, notched and then glued. The book block is trimmed at the spine and glued to the case.
The book is bound with either wire-o or coil binding and a hard or soft cover is wrapped around the coils. This gives the book lay flat properties while also providing a spine where content can be placed for the purpose of bookshelf visibility. The spine can be finished with a square or round back.
Can also be referred to as a Otabind, this binding method uses a thin amount of glue on the spine of the book block to keep the text together while the cover page is glued to the first and last page of the book block. The book will lay flat on a table without springing closed or requiring you to press down on the pages and spine.
Library binding (ANSI/NISO/LBI Z39.78-2000) is a standardized method of binding that maximizes the durability of books that expect heavy usage throughout its shelf life. This type of binding involves reinforced techniques such as a sewn spine, additional cloth on the spine and many other techniques, standardized by the Library Binding Standard, all of which are followed by Webcom.
National Association of State Textbook Administrators (NASTA) is a standard for binding school textbooks in which particular papers, grain direction, binding materials and methods are used to ensure a long-lasting high-durability textbook for school boards.
Polyurethane (PUR) glue is the highest quality glue available, allowing standard books to have high durability and lay-flat quality. It also allows the book to have photos cross over the gutter accurately and gives the spine a square look.
The signatures of the book are folded and stitched through the fold. The signatures are then sewn and glued together at the spine to form a text block and can open completely flat. One of the most common lay flat binding ideal for having an image across a double page spread.
