Magazine Binding Types
What is Perfect Binding?
Perfect binding is one of the magazine binding styles that glues the magazine's text pages into the cover. The collated internal magazine pages will have 3mm milled off the spine side edge and the cover is then glued into position with a EVA style glue.
Perfect bound is suitable for light usage and has the disadvantage that single pages may occasionally fall out with time. This is because the spine edge has been milled off and while the straight line edge does look good, it does give the glue less rough edges to bind to.
Perfect bound is also an ideal binding method for magazines, when they are only going to be read a few times. Monthly and quarterly magazines nearly always use perfect bound because they are often replaced by their next magazine issue shortly after; and while there are countless perfect bound books in circulation that have never lost a page, it does occasionally happen.
Perfect bound books that use an uncoated internal paper stock are less likley to lose pages, but that's becuase the uncoated inernal pages are more porous that the typical magazines coated internal pages.
What is Burst Binding?
Burst binding is very similar to the perfect binding magazine style except that the spine edge of the collected pages is not milled off. Instead, the spine edge has notches or perforations which allows better penetration by the glue. For this reason, burst bound magazines have marginaly better strength and durability over perfect bound books and magazines, and while both perfect binding and burst binding present well, burst bound magazines are also not suitable for very heavy usages. Burst binding, like perfect binding, is useful for quality periodicals, school yearbooks, light use catalogues and other types of general usage publications.
What If you're not sure how you should choose between perfect binding and burst bidning? That's not a worry. If you don't know enough about perfect binding or burst binding, then after talking to you about your magazine, we can make that decision for you.
Saddle stitched, also known as book stapling, is one of the most affordable binding methods available to fasten magazines. It's fast, economical and ideal for smaller magazines and booklets. Saddle stitched booklets are secured through the center-fold by wire staples, allowing the magazine to open flat. The number of pages that can be stitched in a saddle stitched bookle 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 magazines.
It's also worth noting that saddle stitched magazines need to have a page count in a multiple of 4, so that there is a spine fold (gutter) for the staple to fasten. We'd be pleased to advise you on options for your saddle stitched booklets, and whether saddle stitching is the best solution for your magazine binding needs.
