Binding Services

You’ve come to the right place! Boston Business Printing does all types of binding, and quickly!

Our library of binding types consists of the following:

Coil

A plastic spiral bind that securely holds pages and looks very finished. The finished book can be opened and lie flat back on itself so it’s good for workbooks, manuals, presentations or other pieces that may be written on or that just have to look great. Primary colors are black and white but others are available upon special order. Coil binding must be cut-off and completely replaced should a mistake be made and the book requires rebinding.

Wire

Another secure bind that looks very professional. The finished book can be opened and lies almost flat on itself. Ideal for presentations or technical manuals or other pieces that need to look classy. Primary color is silver but other colors are available upon special order. Wire binding must be cut-off and completely replaced should a mistake be made and the books require rebinding.

GBC

A less secure bind but one that can be opened and closed relatively easily so it makes replacing pages easier. Colors are black and white but additional colors are available upon special order.

Tape

Not our favorite type of bind because it tends to be less secure than the others. Mostly used for books that will be filed away because the bind doesn’t take up a lot of space. Available in black and white.

Perfect

A paperback book is perfect-bound. It uses a heating process with glue along the spine. The glue adheres the cover to the pages. It looks very finished, files easily and is relatively secure. Used primarily for corporate reports, self publishing books, children’s books or even architectural portfolios.

Saddle stitching

Two staples in the center of a folded page creates a saddle stitched booklet. A standard size for saddle stitched booklets are 11″ x 17″ flat that fold in half to 8.5″ x 11″. Booklets can have several pages which are stapled in the middle and folded to create the booklet. An inexpensive yet professional look for newsletters, corporate brochures or other applications.

Three-ring binders

Many companies like the flexibility offered by using 3-ring binders. Pages can be easily updated and replaced and customized covers and spines can be inserted into the binder itself.

ACCO

This is an old fashioned bind – two holes on the top of the page are inserted into a metal piece with foldover sides. Used mostly by the legal or medical industry.
