Layflat binding technology is well on its way toward establishing itself as the trademark of book finishing. This binding method not only gives the appearance of high quality finishing, but is functional with reference to the books ability to stay open.
Lay Flat binding solves the problem of the "automatic" turning pages! It is ideal for catalogues, music books, instructional books, recipe books, and text books. Give your customer that extra edge they need to outpace and outshine their competition. Give them lay-flat binding.
The process of "Lay Flat" binding starts with a lining that is applied to the backbone of the text. This special material is designed with flexibility in mind, providing a longer life for the books being bound. The lining becomes the vehicle that attaches the block of signatures to the cover.
This gives the appearance of a free floating cover, similar to hard cover books. When the books are opened, the cover does not crack in the direction of the spine, the flexible lining is the piece taking over this task. No longer will your books look second-hand after being opened just once.
