Book Binding - Service

Case Binding

Case binding is the traditional way to produce a hard back book. Long lasting and robust, cased-in books last a lifetime.

What is Case Binding?

Case binding produces a hard backed book that is strong and durable such as a commemorative book or a register. Cased-in books are made of grey board and covered with printed and laminated paper. They can also be covered with material such as PVC coated paper, book cloth, leather cloth or real leather.

In fact, because of the wide variety of coverings that are available for this type of binding, we are more than happy to advise you on what choice is best suited to your needs.

This type of book is usually sewn together in sections and attached to the inside of a case with end papers which are tipped on to the book block and then glued into the case.
