Breathe New Life Into Your Books With A Book Binding Service
Most people simply love their hardback books. They are really special and are treasured a lot more than paperback books. Paperbacks are convenient, but a hardback book is so much more special. If you really want to take care of your hardback books and make them last for a lifetime then you need a high quality book binding service.
What is Book Binding?
When you use a book binding service they will create your book by collecting into a block the block bound pages or those sewn into a spine. Adhesive secures the hardback book and the book binding completed.
You can choose from a flat spine, a rounded spine or a tight backed book spine. The adding of a ribbon or marbling is possible, prior to the gluing of the hardback book case to the book block.
A book bindery will make your hardback books a lot more durable. It is a real art form that requires a great deal of experience and craftsmanship. The book binder wants your hardback book to last you for years, so they will bind your book using the right techniques.
The strongest method of bookbinding for durability is the Smyth sewn hard cover books method. Here thread is sewn through the back fold of a page (at the spine) and this will proceed from page to page. With this method of book binding you can lay your book flat at any page.
Custom Bookbinding Options
If you want to customize your hardback book then there are a number of options open to you. Custom leather book binding is very popular and this is a complex process. Paring of the leather around the headcaps and corners is very important. It also requires special card for the inner cover which is the same thickness as the turned in leather. The result is astounding!
There are other finishing techniques that will bring new life to your books. These include foil stamping, staining, die cutting, handwork, round cornering, staining, a unique dust jacket and marbling. Naturally your book rebinding cost will be higher with these techniques, but they are really worth the extra money.
