About Binding

As the so-called “binding into a book”, book binding is the overall operation process of a book from collating to upper sealing into a book. It generally includes the processing steps of arranging, connecting, stitching, equipping, and topping the printed pages in sequence. Book binding takes an important role in book printing.

When the book is opened, the content of the book can be fully displayed, from the book to the automatic binding method. But the cost of this binding way is higher than the prefect binding.
