Velo Binding

Velo binding combining pages by using a strip of plastic with ridged tines inserted into a correlating strip. Excess tines at the bottom are trimmed with the tops are melted to seal the bind. Velo binds are often used in law offices or other places where slick-looking document is needed, although binds of up to three inches on the top or side can be supported.

Tape Binding

Tape binding is essentially what it sounds like. This bindery option involves an adhesive tape wrapped around the spine of a document to hold each cover and the papers between them in place. You might be familiar with this type of binding in quick-reference notebooks or as a more affordable alternative to perfect binding.

Perfect Binding

If you’re trying to bind your project into a book similar to something you might pick off the shelf at a bookstore, perfect binding is the way to go. This method binds documents to the spine of a wrap-around paperboard cover. While typically not cost-effective for short runs, perfect binding is a great way to give any project the professional feel of a classically bound book.
