Notch binding is a method of perfect binding, but the signatures are notched on the spine in the folding process at Wrap-Ups. It is used for high caliper paper and thin books. It can be used with coated or un-coated paper.
Types of books that lead themselves to this style of binding range from "coffee table" books to annual reports. The life span of these books coincides with the inherent strength from this binding style. This style also enables us to bind a book as thin as 28 pages.
The secret is in spine preparation, and this is why with Notch Binding, Wrap-Ups must do the folding.
With Regular Perfect Binding (Traditional binding), the customer supplies Wrap-Ups with the folded signatures. We will do any type of folding for Notch Binding or flat press sheets.
WARNING! Prolonged storage at high temperature or below freezing, will affect the strength of bound product!
