BOOK BINDING OPTIONS
for SOFT cover book printing brisbane
Perfect Binding is one of the styles of book binding that glues the books text pages into the book cover's spine. The collated book have 3mm milled off the spine edge and the cover is then glued into position with a PVA style glue. Perfect binding is suitable for light usage and has the disadvantage that single pages may fall out with time. This is because the book's spine has been milled off, and while the straight line edge does look good, it does give the glue less of edge to hold onto. Perfect binding is an ideal binding method for magazines and books that are only going to be read a few times. Monthly and quarterly magazines are only called upon for a short period of time, and while there are countless perfect bound books in circulation that have never lost a page, it is occasional that they do.
What is Burst Binding? Burst binding is very similar to the above, except that the spine's edge of the collected pages are not milled off. Instead, the spine edge's have notches or perforations which allows better penetration by the glue. For this reason burst bound books have better strength and durability than the above, and so while both present well, Burst Binding is more suited to heavy usage book printing and the above to annual reports and magazines.
If your softcover book is going to be very thick, or if it needs to survive constant usage or extreme climatic conditions, it may require PUR binding. PUR binding is nearly identical to perfect binding except that it uses a special high tech adhesive called Polyurethane Reactive Adhesive. This process is the most expensive option of all the glue binding options but will provide binding many times stronger than the standard perfect binding.
If your book is intended for constant daily use and will be subjected to considerable wear and tear, then perhaps a hard case-bound book would be appropriate.
Hard-cover books / Case-bound books are also more often associated with high-value (high cost) book printing and it's for that reason that most self-publishers do not choose this option.
Case bound books are section sewn, with the text being imposed into signatures and sewn together with cotton. Endpapers are then glued into a cloth or vinyl covered hardcover which may be printed, foiled or embossed. This is the strongest and most archivally stable bookbinding method available. If you would like to discuss case binding and whether it is the best option for binding your book.
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.

Brisbane Based Self Publishing
If you're interested in publishing your own printed books, then you may have already learned two things about the book printing companies that operate in that space. You may have learned that there are online book printing companies that offer cheap online prices, but that you can never catch on the phone, and you may have learned that other book printing companies don't have the time to talk to self-publishers about what is required from their book printing files.
Here at Goliath, that's not the case. In fact, our chatty bunch of book printing account managers love to talk about book printing.
