We have our sewing machine. We can sew the sheets (quires) folded into a book block with this sewing machine. These sewn book blocks we glue to the cover. That can be a hardcover or a paperback.
Unlike a sewn book, a glued book is not bound in sections. With a glued book, all pages are glued together and then attached with glue in the cover’s spine. Because no needle and thread are involved, we also call it perfect binding. Hotmelt and PUR are the two types of glue that we use to glue your book. A glued book can be fitted with a hardcover or a paperback.
In addition to sewing and gluing, we also offer the possibility to stitch (staple) or bind your book with a wire-o. The spiral binding consists of a steel spiral. The entire book, including the cover, is held together by the spiral. The advantage of this is that you can turn the pages altogether, and the book remains open very easily. For manuals or a portfolio, this can be very useful.
