SADDLE STITCH
This is a simple and common practice. Several pages are creased and folded along their centre and stapled (usually at least twice), with a long jaw stapler.
Practical application - magazines, pamphlets, logbooks etc.....
 
 
 
 
PERFECT BINDING
Applied to paper and hard backed books. The pages are split into sections and glued into a heavy weight card / paper backing. School textbooks are often bound in this way.
 
     
WIRE BINDING
These are extremely common. The pages are held together with either a wire spiral binding. Notebooks, sketchbooks and documents are often bound using this technique.
 
 
 
 
SPIRAL BINDING
Very common, especially seen with notebooks. The spiral, which can be metal or plastic, is turned through corresponding holes in the paper.
 
     

COMB BINDING
Similar to spiral binding, but with plastic being used. They are manufactured from plastic and supplied in a range of colours.
