Whatever your project is designed to do, the extensive bindery services at James Printing provide a variety of options to complete it with style. Our mechanical binding services include high-speed saddle stitching, side stitching, plastic coil and perfect binding.
Our high-speed saddle stitcher enables us to stitch thick and thin booklets alike. This machine features a cover feeder that scores each cover in line as it is being dropped on top of the gathered forms. Next, each book is stitched then three-knife trimmed to complete the operation. Let the happy people at James Printing keep you in stitches.
Side stitching is one of the strongest construction options and is frequently used for binding textbooks. It’s also a common method of binding periodical issues made up of leaves or more than one section which cannot be saddle stitched.
Plastic coil or "plastic spiral" is popular for calendars, children’s books and computer manuals. Available in a variety of colors and sizes, plastic coil elements will spring back to their original shape even if stepped on.
Perfect binding is the “standard” adhesive binding method applied to the spine of a book block, which is then married to a cover. Decoration and design options for perfect bound books include foldouts, pocket covers and die cutting.
