What’s It Mean?
- soft binding spotlight #1
///////////////////////////////

Softbound (soft back, soft cover, paper back): Books are secured at the spine - all pages and a cover (index, cover stock, plastic coated, etc.). A few of the types we offer are Chicago screw, coil, comb, perfect, saddle, three-hole, velobind and wire (spiral) binding.

Adhesive binding: Soft or hard type binding. Pages held together by adhesive/glue, rather than any form or sewing or mechanical attachment (stapled).

Cover: The outer part of any book. Covers are generally labeled as hard or soft. Type of cover effects types of bindings possible.

*Head: The top, specifically the edge, of the book.

Mechanical binding: Soft or hard type binding. Bindings utilizing wires, staples, or plastic.

* denotes a term that Gregath Publishing doesn't normally use.

Computer aid!?!
///////////////////////////////

Be aware of changing versions: It seems like MS Word has always defaulted to the .doc format. Now with the new Office, .doc is an "old" format. Users with the older versions of Office may have no difficulty accessing the format, some problems, or even not be able to open the new format files at all. If you realize this can be a problem, you can head off some problems by re-formatting, or explaining ahead of time.
