5 Benefits of Mechanical Binding Solutions

Economical for Short Runs

If you’ve got a short run you need to get out fast, mechanical binding is an ideal solution. These books can be printed fast and in large quantities, so you can get the product out there when you need it.

Lay Flat Ability

Never underestimate the usefulness of lay flat ability. Books that lay flat are easier to handle and much easier to put on the copy machine. All mechanical bound books lay flat for optimum performance.

Accurate Crossovers

A crossover is used to refer to the area where the body of the page (where the text/images are) meets at the head and foot of opposite sheets. You want them to meet in the same place, especially with images so they’re not distorted. Mechanical binding solutions offer accurate crossovers, which is great for image heavy print projects.

Great for a Variety of Print Projects

Wire/plastic coil-bound books make a great home for all kinds of print projects. Here are a few examples:

  • Manuals
  • Agendas
  • Calendars
  • Notebooks
  • Cookbooks
  • And more!

Plenty of Options

You might be surprised by how many options there are for customizing mechanical bound books. Plastic coils and bindings come in a huge range of colors suitable for any project. We also offer a number of different binding styles. Fully concealed wire-bound hardback books, for example, feature a professional wire binding that is actually concealed on the outside by a hardback cover, so the only time the wire-O is visible is when the book is open. This also increases the book’s durability.
