BINDING FOR YOUR NEEDS

Some of our offerings include: Smyth, Saddle & Side Sewing; PUR; Special Edition, Library & Legal Binding; Restoration; Family Histories; Hardcover & Softcover binding. 

Library Binding

Our Periodical and Monographic bindings meet the Standards established by the Library Binding Institute. We provide bindings for libraries throughout the West and Southwest, and we offer a full range of options to meet your needs. We can take your paperback books with picture covers, remove the covers, laminate them with our durable Mylar film, and make a sturdy hardcover binding designed to dramatically increase the circulation life of your collection.

 

LBI STANDARD PERIODICALS
Our F-grade buckram bound Standard Periodicals are available in 15 different colors. Our basic binding includes Standard Collation, verification of the title and proper sequence of the issues, acid-free endsheets, leaf attachment by double-fan gluing, and stamping on the spine with the title, volume number, and year in black, white, or gold foil. The text block is rounded and backed.

 

 

ECONOMY PERIODICALS
Our Economy Periodicals are produced in the same fashion as our LBI Standard Periodicals, except that the process of rounding and backing is eliminated, leaving the text block in the flatback shape. Rounding and backing enhances the durability of bound volumes, especially those that are large or heavy. We normally recommend flatbacks for material that is used less in your collection.

 

 

LBI STANDARD MONOGRAPHS
We rebind your library books with a new F grade buckram cover with our choice of colors. Our basic binding includes leaf attachment of double-fan-gluing with our acid free end sheets and stamping the author and title on the spine.

 

 

MYLARS
(For Paperback Books) We remove the original covers of your paperback books and laminate them with clear durable Mylar film, which we then use as the cover material, from which we make a new hardcover. Your book is double-fan-glued with our acid-free PVA adhesive and cased into the new cover, resulting in a durable attractive picture cover binding that will enhance circulation.

THESIS AND DISSERTATIONS

Your thesis is bound in our durable F grade buckram cover with your choice of 15 colors. Our basic binding includes leaf attachment of double-fan-gluing with our acid free end sheets and stamping the title and author’s last name on the spine. Call numbers can also be stamped as an option. Each volume should include a complete binding slip typed or neatly printed with the exact text you want us to stamp on the spine of the bound thesis. We can also provide pockets to hold maps, computer disks, or CD’s.

BOOK REPAIR

In addition to our binding capabilities, we offer book repair services for jobs manufactured elsewhere. Occasionally books are bound with a misprinted page, missing pages or will have quality issues. We can repair a majority of these books at a fraction of the cost of reprinting and rebinding.

First impressions are often the selling point of a product, which is why our highly skilled sample makers give individual handcrafted attention to building a prototype. We work closely with our customers to deliver solutions that are custom fit to their needs. Our ability to capture the visual appeal that our customers are looking for is only one of the many attributes that has led to our continued success and growth.
