Comparison of technical parameters of the offered papers

Paper is an important issue during the production of a book. It is worth taking into account the weight and thickness of the book. If the book has few pages, the use of loose paper with a significant thickness may have a beneficial effect. In the case of books with a significant number of pages, you need to consider its significant weight and volume, in this case it is worth using papers of lower thickness and weight. The size of the ridge in various types of binding has its limit therefore the question of its thickness matters. Amber papers are mainly characterized by high whiteness as opposed to Ecco Book papers, which have a cream-like color similar to that in old books.

Types of book binding

Sewed with wire

In this type of binding, a wire is used to connect cards, commonly found in notebooks, hence the colloquially used name "booklet binding". The saddle-stitching binding applies to a book with a volume of 8 to several dozen pages (depends directly on the thickness of the paper used). The ridge in this frame has a gentle shape as opposed to a book in a soft cover. In this type of binding, the number of pages of the book must be divisible by 4. This type of binding is less durable than the soft glued binding because the pages are attached only in two points, not the entire length. Binding with wire is the cheapest available on offer.

Soft glued

The most popular binding of books. The main feature of this binding is a paper cover that allows you to bend (it is soft). Covers in books in soft binding are usually papers in 250-350g weights - stiffness similar to business cards. This type of binding is used for books of at least several dozen pages. The back may have a thickness of 5 to 50 mm. Publications with a small number of pages are not feasible in this technology and require the use of a wire-bound binding.

In a soft binding, the gluing of the sheets, depending on the needs, two gluing technologies are used: Hot-melt and PUR.

Hot-melt (hot glue) is the most popular method commonly found in books for decades.
Hot-melt is characterized by high durability, stiffness of the adhesive bond and favorable price, it is suitable for books printed on paper with a typical weight of 60 - 120 g.
Glue of this type is not flexible, therefore unfolding a book completely flat is difficult or even impossible (it depends directly on the rigidity of the paper used inside the book)

PUR (polyurethane adhesive) - is a new technology in which the flexibility of the adhesive joint has been increased. This gives tangible benefits particularly felt when gluing books and catalogs in which stiff paper with a significant weight is used inside. Thanks to the flexible glue seal, the book is easier to spread. PUR technology is more expensive than Hot-melt.

Hard cover

The most expensive available frame based on a rigid cardboard cover with a thickness of about 2 mm. Popularly used in encyclopedias and other demanding releases. It allows you to easily spread the book almost completely flat without the risk of ridge fracture. Cover printing in this type of binding takes place on thin paper, which is then covered with a cardboard of considerable thickness and stiffness. Books in this type of binding are heavy and resistant to damage, such as bending the corners.

Spiral binding

The luminaire is popularly used in various documentations, menus, catalogs, which will be intensively exploited. Thanks to the perforation of sheets and the use of a metal spiral, cards of any stiffness can be freely turned over. No ridge allows you to break the book in any way. It is a very convenient to use. The choice of spiral in different colors can be an additional decoration.
