BINDERY

The Bindery

While the word “Bindery” insinuates the manufacture of books, the Bindery at Carlisle Printing does much more than assemble books. Nearly all of our print projects are brought to completion in the bindery, from brochures to banners and, of course, books.

Below are some of the book binding styles available to you.

If you need help deciding which is right for your project, contact us.

Spiral Bound

Spiral Bound

Traditional spiral binding lays perfectly flat, making it the first choice for cookbooks and calendars.

Recommended For:

  • Calendars
  • Cookbooks
  • Journals
  • Ledgers
Perfect Bound

Perfect Bound

The classic soft-cover, with a durable-yet-flexible spine, has become the default binding for many types of books.

Recommended For:

  • Catalogs
  • Devotionals
  • Magazines
  • Memoirs
  • Novels
  • Study Guides
Smythe Sewn

Smythe Sewn

The feeling of a Smythe Sewn (Hardcover) book in hand is distinct from any feeling in the world. Perhaps its the weight of all those bygone encyclopedias.

Recommended For:

  • Anthologies
  • Geneologies
  • Heirloom Books
  • History Books
  • Song Books
Saddle Stitched

Saddle Stitched

Easily the most simple binding method, and the most common binding for low page-count periodicals and other publications.

Recommended For:

  • Multi-page Brochures
  • Periodicals
  • Study Booklets
Wrapped-Spiral Bound

Wrapped-Spiral Bound

A wrapped-spiral book has all the advantages of spiral binding, and none of the disadvantages. It lays flat, but still displays the title on the spine when standing on a shelf.

Recommended For:

  • Cookbooks
  • Handbooks
  • Reference Books
Twin-Loop Bound

Twin-Loop Bound

Twin-Loop bound books and calendars provide the same function as spiral bound books, but with a cleaner aesthetic and a no risk of unspooling. Also the facing pages do not become offset from each other slightly as they do when you open the normal spiral bound books.

Recommended For:

  • Calendars
  • Cookbooks
  • Handbooks
  • Journals
  • Ledgers
  • Notepads
