If your book is intended for constant daily use and will be subjected to considerable wear and tear, then a hard case-bound cover will be required to ensure it lasts the distance. School diaries and textbooks are good examples of this.
Hard covers are also essential if the information is valuable and the books are intended to last for many years. Reference books, history books, genealogies and art books are normally bound with a hard cover. Valuable books also call for high quality archival stocks, to ensure the book will last for many years without discolouring and acid spots. Case bound books are section sewn, with the text being imposed into signatures and sewn with cotton. The endpapers are then glued into a cloth or vinyl covered hard cover, which may be printed, foiled or embossed. This is the strongest and most archivally stable book hard binding method available.

Perfect binding is the process of gluing the inner pages edges into a combined spine within the cover. It is suitable for light usage, and has the disadvantage that single pages may fall out with a long time with heavy use. It's cost effective and suitable for most book print jobs. Burst binding, on the other hand, has notches or perforations in the spine which allows better penetration by the glue. Another significant advantage is that the spine edge is not milled like the above perfect binding, leaving the signatures intact and reducing the possibility of pages tearing out. That means burst bound book have better strength and durability than perfect bound book.
Perfect binding and burst binding both present well, but are not suitable for heavy wear usages. They are useful for quality periodicals, school yearbooks, light use catalogues and other types of general usage publications. They are normally used for publications of 64 pages or more.
If your soft cover book is going to be very thick, or it needs to survive constant usage or extreme climatic conditions, you may require PUR binding. PUR binding uses a special high tach adhesive called Polyurethane Reactive Adhesive, and while this process is more expensive, it will provide a binding many times stronger than standard perfect binding.
Saddle stitching, also known as book stapling, is one of the most cost efficient binding methods available to fasten books. It's fast, economical and ideal for smaller publications and booklets. The pages are secured through the centre-fold by wire staples, allowing the book to open flat. The number of pages that can be stitched depends on how thick the paper is, although as a general rule 48 pages is the maximum advisable number of pages for a saddle stitched book.
It's also interesting to note, that saddle stitched books need to have a page count in a multipul of 4, so that there is a spine fold for the staple to fasten. We'd be pleased to advise you on soft cover options and whether it is the best solution for binding your books...
Wire binding (or wire-o-binding) is commonly found when a combination of heavy and light stocks are all used together on the same book intermittently. Because wire binding is durable and allows for full and flat book opening and closing, it is useful for binding items like calendars, swatch books, note books, annual reports, diary, presentation books and unusual custom publications. Wire binding is available in a range of colours, finishes and sizes, to suit your needs.
