Binding Methods for Booklets and Presentations

Selecting the right binding type for your project depends on how large the booklet is, your budget and the purpose of the print job. Your local printing company can assist you in selecting the approach that matches your needs most closely. Binding Methods for Booklets and Presentations

When Do You Need Binding for Your Printing Projects?

Most customers seek printing binding under two conditions: when they want the printed materials to last and when they want to make a specific impression on their audience. This technique also increases the convenience factor for your audience. If you have an important presentation to make to a potential client, binding can demonstrate a level of professionalism. If you have training manuals or other materials that your audience will refer to over time, binding methods can ensure that the materials not only stay together but that they will occupy a place of importance on a desk or bookshelf. Or, in a class or workshop, if you want attendees to easily navigate the presentation, binding will ensure they don’t have to wrestle with a sheaf of loose paperwork to find their place.

Common Types of Printing Binding

You have many types of printing binder methods to choose from. These include spiral binding, typically done with thin wire, and plastic comb. These are typically not as long-lasting as other options, but they work well if you need affordability, function and accessibility more than you need a sleek profile. Sown or stitched binding — including saddle, stab and loop stitching — provide a more streamlined type of binder. These designs typically use thin wire or thread; however, they may cost a little more, depending on the print job. Some other options include screw binding, plastic grips, case and perfect binding. Case binding and perfect binding are techniques used more often in book publishing, and will usually only be appropriate for larger numbers of pages and for those items you want to last for years.

Choosing the Best Binding for Your Printing Project

Some types of printing binding lend themselves best to a larger run, while others work better if you only need one or two items bound. Your budget and the level of professionalism you need will help determine the type of binder you need. After all, the impression you hope to make on your audience is as important as cost (at least in most cases). However, the number of pages in your booklet can also help you determine the best approach.
