Perforation is a process used to allow easy separation of two sections of a print job, such as allowing paper to be torn easily along the perforation line.

Perforation is mostly used for loose-leaf coupons, calendars, postage stamps, leaflets and notepads.

Post Binding

Post binding is often the most overlooked method. It uses screw posts to hold documents and pages together to produce a beautiful result.

Post binding can be used for all books sizes and allows pages to be removed and/or added more easily than other binding methods.

A very familiar binding method in many offices.

Saddle Stitching

Saddle Stitching is a very popular book binding method in which folded sheets are gathered together, one inside the other, and then stapled through the fold line with wire staples.

The staples pass through the folded crease from the outside and are clinched between the centermost pages.

A very popular binding method for most printed booklets.


Scoring refers to the process of making a crease in paper so it will fold easier. Basically, a paper score is a ridge that is indented into the paper or cardboard where the fold line will occur.

Scoring makes a nice, neat fold line when there is a need to fold a heavy grade paper.

Section Sewing

A section sewn binding is made of printed folded sheets which are then sewn together. As they are folded and sewn together, the pages are grouped in the correct order for pagination before the document is exported as spreads.

Aside from all that technical jargon, a section sewn binding method is often used for books with large numbers of pages.

Side Stitching

Side-stitch binding refers to the method of binding magazines and booklets by forcing a wire through the edge of the sheet, from the front to the back, near the spine.

This simple method is used frequently as it is a simplified binding process, enabled the binding of unfolded sheets of paper. 

Spiral Binding

Spiral Binding, also known as Coil Binding, is a common method for joining the pages and cover of a bound document. It utilises a durable plastic or metal coil that is inserted and twisted through small holes punched along the spinal edge of the book’s cover and pages.

A perfect and economical way to bind business documents.

Wire Bound Books

Wire binding is a popular book binding method whereby a series of small holes are punched into the document/booklet, then inserted onto a “C” shaped wire spine. The wire is then squeezed closed until it is round. These type of booklets have the benefit of folding cover to cover at 360 degrees and will lie flat.

A robust and secure method of binding a range of business documents.
