Why bind a book?

There are many reasons you might consider binding a book. Of course, there is the simple handling convenience – it’s not fun or practical to carry loose pages. But the benefits of bookbinding go far beyond logistical.

A bound book has a distinctive professional quality, and we offer high-quality binding services that are indistinguishable from any book at your local bookstore. Not only will your book look fantastic, but it will also last longer and be more durable even with heavy use. Bound books also give your customers a far more pleasant reading experience.

Types of bookbinding

At MBE we offer all kinds of binding and laminating services. We can bind any length of the document, from small booklets to large professional plan portfolios. And you can choose from a range of bookbinding methods to achieve your desired look, feel and value for money. Each technique has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it is important to consider each one carefully when choosing the best option for you.

Saddle-stitch binding   Popular and cost-effective, this technique staples printed sheets of paper folded in half and is best used for smaller booklets and pamphlets.

PUR or perfect binding – Perfect binding creates a seamless bind by attaching paperboard or heavy stocks to the spine with glue. For premium results.

Wiro or spiral binding – Often seen in commercial documents, wiro binding uses loops of wire that spiral through hole-punched pages. It’s highly versatile and economical.

Drilling and post-binding – Another excellent technique for high-quality, sturdy binding for premium documents or menu holders. Ideal for any collateral that needs to last.

Part of the binding process is the sometimes laborious sorting and collation process, getting your project’s pages into order and ready to be bound. That’s why many customers take advantage of our sorting and collating service. For large projects with multiple copies, it’s a major time-saver!

In addition to all your printing and copying, we can also help with partitioning systems and even design your cover with our in-house graphic design expertise.
