Different Binding Tactics For Booklet Printing

Printing booklets is a great manner for you to promote or advertise your business on the market world. These print materials allow you to give out details and information than just a brochure, and these things are most of the time seen as having more value than other print materials available. In addition, these things can be also used to make supplied that you will use in house such as employee or staff handbook and data logs.

These booklets usually have a cover ad a minimum of four pages in its inner part. Depending on that size, style and its use, you will usually have different binding options every time you will print these booklets for your business. Always knowing which style of binding will best suit your taste and requirements will most of the time make it easier for you to make a reliable and great print material.

• Ring binding - this process of binding is completed after the printing of booklets and involves using three different rings and a cover to hold the pages all together. If you have a print material that needs to be updated or added to on a regular basis, then this is the perfect binding tactic that you can always keep in mind. However, if you are using these print materials to present to your clients and customers, then this binding tactic does not appear as professional as compared to others and it is not as durable as some others are.

• Saddle stitching - this type of binding is a usual form of binding for booklets done for business promotional purposes. This binding tactic is affordable yet relatively reliable. During the process of printing these print materials, the pages are usually stapled along the fold. The print material then has a strong binding once it is folded. The largest disadvantage of using this tactic is that the pages will not lay flat once folded.

• Coil binding - this kind of binding process is a form of binding used for printing booklets when the print material needs to lay flat when it will be opened. This usually makes it a usual choice for workbooks and textbooks. To use this coil binding, the paper material is usually punched with several small holes during the process of printing. A wire coil is then threaded through the holes to hold the pages all together. While this is a good choice for materials that will only be utilized for once, it usually does not have the same durability as the other binding tactics and the pages might tear from catching on the coil itself.

• Last but not the least, thermal and perfect binding - this is another kind of binding tactics that you can use for booklet printing. Both of this type usually needs attaching pages wit glue to the spine. In thermal binding process, this process is completed with the help of heated glue. Perfect binding on the other hand, is completed by roughening the edges of the pages before the glue will be applied. This way is most of the time use for booklets that you want to hold up well and it most of the time used on paperback books and some magazines. The largest disadvantage of these processes on the other hand is its cost that is much more precious than compared to all the other binding tactic available.
