Spiral & Hard Binding

Hard cover binding is the highest quality binding available. Our printed cover is laminated and glued on heavy board to make a smooth outside cover. The book block is then attached to the inside of the board making a very durable book cover.

Cann Digital is unique with its offering of hardcover book binding in-house and in small runs. This is primarily done by hand with special alignment machines and good old attention to detail by book binding artisans. We also have dust jackets available and other cover materials can be used as well. Trust Cann Digital to match the paper grain to your book printing project and the correct process for your book binding project. Why wait? Get published today!

Soft Cover Perfect Book Binding : Great for training manuals, sports programs, novels and any thick paperback or hardback. Perfect book binding is accomplished with digitally printed pages clamped in a vise-like structure. These pages are drawn across a blade that carves notches in the bound edge. This “roughed up" spine is passed over a hot melt glue dispenser. Glue adheres to the edges and works its way into the notches. After the glue is applied to the spine, the whole assembly is forced into what will become the wrap around cover. Completing the book binding, the cover is folded around the “book block”, glued and folded up the front and back of the book. This form of book binding is preferred as the standard for paperbacks as well as the beginning of a cloth covered high-end hard bound book.

Spiral Book Binding : We offer two types of Spiral Binding with our soft cover books and two standard coil colors (white or black). Other coil colors are available for an additional cost.

Plastic Coil Binding We offer plastic coil binding, which is a style that is ideal for books that must lie open flat. The main advantage of plastic coil binding is that the book can be folded in half. This binding is similar to wire binding except it's made of more durable plastic. Choose black or white plastic coil to coordinate with your cover.

Coil binding is a colorful and versatile type of book binding chosen for its ability to fold completely over on itself or lay flat for ease of use. This type of book binding is replacing the older metal coil or "wire-o" that has been popular in the past. It can be made to have a very stiff cover and back with a glossy laminated cover or a traditional Acetate clear front cover and blue or black vinyl back that has been in use for decades. UBuildABook has automated equipment for the punching of paper and the insertion of the coils to make your book binding experience quick and trouble free.

Plastic Comb Binding : We offer plastic comb binding with a soft cover book. Plastic comb binding is also used for books which must lie flat, such as manuals, how-to books, or workbooks. Choose from black or white plastic comb colors to coordinate with your cover. Other colors available for an additional cost. You may also imprint your book title on the plastic comb for an additional per book, depending on quantity and size of comb.
