November 11, 2011 · Print This Article

Professional documents needs to be presented professionally in terms of copy, design, printing as well as binding and finishing. Professional binding and finishing can help you present a formally bound document for any purpose required. There are many different types of binding methods to choose from and each method has its own range of benefits.

If you are going to spend the time and resources compiling professional documentation, then you have to invest in a professional binding method for your documents. Following are some of the most popular binding and finishing methods and the types of projects they are best suited for:

  • Thermal binding: With this binding method, a cloth tape is fused along the left margin of the documents to form a sturdy bind that is resistant to tear. This binding is best suited for paperback books and novels.
  • Wire binding: This binding and finishing method is best suited for documents and books that will be laid onto a flat surface as it allows for easy page turning. Holes are punched into pages and these pages are inserted onto a wire spine which is then closed to form a round spine.
  • Velo binding: With this type of binding, a thin plastic strip is used to bind the pages together to create a sleek looking document. Velo binding is commonly used to bind legal documents.
  • Comb binding: This binding method is used on documents that require frequent page additions and removals. With comb binding, a wire spine is inserted into the paper and then squeezed close for a securely bound spine.

There are many other optional binding and finishing methods that will give your documents a professional appearance. Investing in an adequate binding method will help you to carry your message across more effectively.
