Binding

Our Borg machinery creates saddle stitched books

Once books are collated, if they are hardbound, or softbound (perfect bound, coil bound, fastback, etc.) the books are boxed and sent to their respective specialty binderies or routed in house for select softbinding processes.

If the book is saddle-stitched, the pages are loaded into a machine that collates, folds and staples the pages and cover into completed books.


If the book is comb bound, Chicago screw, 3-hole, or tape and staple/side stitch, the books are then bound in-house.

Even collating gets hands-on treatment.

Some larger publishing projects will send partial orders of unbound text blocks to different binderies, such as 75 hardbound and 125 perfect bound for economy, while accommodating demand.  At this point, the front office staff is in charge of all shipping paperwork.  However, they don't always monitor where the book is in the production process. After reading this, one can see why the office staff can't give exact reports on book production time once the book leaves pre-press. At this time, the final billing goes to the author/submitter.
