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 type of book binding. The basic feature of this binding is a paper cover that allows you to bend (it is soft). Covers in books in a soft cover are usually papers and cartons in 250-350g weights - stiffness similar to a business card. The soft binding is used for books with a minimum of 80 pages. The spine should have a width 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 the soft binding, 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. There are many varieties of glue in this technology which is constantly being improved. The latest varieties of hot glue achieve parameters of flexibility and durability similar to polyurethane glue, which significantly increases its use.
Hot-melt is characterized by high durability, adhesive bond and favorable price of production. It is most suitable for soft-printed books printed on uncoated paper. Its important advantage is the bonding speed, which occurs immediately after the glue has cooled, allowing further processing of the bookbinder and fast delivery of the finished product to the recipient.

PUR (polyurethane adhesive) - Adhesive cured during chemical reaction, obtains high flexibility and adhesion to all printing substrates. This gives tangible benefits when gluing books and catalogs with rigid coated paper inside. Thanks to the elastic glue joint, the book is easy to decompose without the risk of ridge fracture.

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.
