Specialists in bookbinding
Printing books online nowadays is the fastest option to get a printed book, because customers can quickly get the right price for their requirements, the materials they can use and the finishes they want to apply.
Instant information allows faster and more profitable decision-making, so it is essential to respond to this process in the productive side with equal speed.
At Cevagraf, SCCL we not only have the right machinery for online printing, we also have binding in our workshop. Our speciality is PUR paperback , which is a modern and resistant type of binding, just as strong as sewn paperback and with a finishing similar to that of glued paperback.
Paperback binding, also known as softcover binding, is a type of binding in which the book, sewn or glued, is simply covered with a paper or cardboard, which is generally strong but not necessarily rigid, and glued to the spine. This type of binding is used particularly when it is necessary to print corporate catalogues having many pages, editorial and commercial books, periodical publications of some relevance in the market , etc... This type of binding helps to provide more resistance to the printed product, and in addition an appearance of higher quality than that achieved by stapled binding.
There are different types of Paperback:
- Glued paperback : the junction of the parts of the book is done with glue.
- Sewn paperback : as its name suggests, this type of paperback is characterised by the sewing of the sheets that make up the book, i.e. the sheets are sewn together and then glued to the cover.
- PUR paperback: it is exactly the same as the glued paperback method, with the only difference being that the glue used is very resistant, much more so than the one used for glued paperback.
Hardcover printing and binding
Hardcover is a type of binding in which the pages, sewn or glued, are lined with a rigid cardboard cover glued to the spine. This cover wraps the book on all its external surfaces. The inner sides of the covers are made of paper and the inner part of the spine (not visible, as it is covered by the cover spine) is made of cloth, although it can also be made of paper.
This type of binding is used when we want our book to have an appearance of high quality and resistance . It is the book finishing par excellence as far as appearance is concerned, it is also the most expensive binding, as the production process is more manual than the other types of binding.
At Cevagraf, SCCL we specialise in this type of binding as well as in PUR softcover and thread-sewn Binding. We are professionals in the field of printing and now you can also place your order online with the best price and the highest quality. Hard Cover Binding , as a binding method, can also be sewn or glued, just like Paperback, but the cover is hardened thanks to a laminated 2 mm cardboard, giving that expected robustness of this type of binding.
