Binding As Far As The Eye Can See

Our excellent binding options and capabilities are unmatched.  In fact, when you choose our team at AlphaGraphics, you'll not only get certified accuracy, quality, and consistency, you'll also get expertise!  To make your binding decision process easier, we’ve listed our most popular binding options with a brief description. That way, you can be confident your book will reflect the vision you have.  If you’re still unsure, contact one of our customer service representatives, they’re more than happy to help!

Rivet: Rivet binding involves metal or plastic rivets that are inserted into the corner of hole punched paper and is very cost-effective.  Our customers use this method for documents, instruction manuals, and even presentations.

Side Sewn: Is commonly used for photo books, yearbooks, and children’s books because it holds so well and is great for thinner books.

Screw and Post: If adding or removing pages is required, screw and post binding is right for you.  This method is frequently used for novels, hardcover, and text books.

Concealed Wire-O Binding: Concealed wire-o binding works great when you want your book to lie flat when opened with full rotation.  Its durability comes from the double-loop wire that is inserted, the only thing to remember is that you cannot print on the spine.

Plastic-Grip Binding: Molded, 3-sided plastic spine makes this method easy, plastic binding is commonly used for annual reports and presentations.

Hardcover Binding: Hardcover binding is perfect for hardcover and paperback books when superior quality finishes are desired.  It’s durable, sophisticated and won’t break the bank.

If the above binding options aren’t the right fit consider these following great alternatives:

  • Perfect
  • 3-Ring

  • Spiral/Coil
