Good magazine printing
not only needs good content, novel layout design, but also needs a suitable binding method, because a suitable binding method is convenient for readers to read and can add a touch of beauty.

Today, let's talk about the 5 kinds of binding methods commonly used in magazines:

Saddle stitch

Saddle stitching usually refers to "wire tacks", and instead of using pre-made staples, the machine cuts a length of wire from a rolled wire during production, then staples it into the paper, and bend the wire on the other side of the paper to secure it.

Saddle stitching has a short binding cycle and low cost, but the binding firmness is poor, and the iron wire used is difficult to penetrate thicker pages. Suitable for books under 32 pages. Such as cheap magazine printing.

Flat stitching

Because the iron wire is easy to rust and the pages are loose, it is now rarely used. In addition, the side-stitching needs to occupy a certain width of the stitching mouth, so that the pages only can be in the form of "not fully opened", and the booklet is too thick to be easily read.
Generally, it is suitable for books and magazine under 300 pages.

Perfect bound

Perfect bound. Also called glue back binding, glue binding. Because of its good flatness, low cost, high efficiency, fast publishing, and easy readers to turn over, a large number of perfect bound book printing and magazine printing use this binding method. Perfect binding is a widely used binding process.

Sewing adhesive back binding

The book block that is about to be folded, assembled and pasted into a volume, in the order of front and back, tightly string each booklet with a thread and then wrap it with a cover. This binding is strong and easy to flatten, and is suitable for thicker albums or hardcover book printing. Compared with flat binding, the shape of the book has no binding marks, and no matter how many pages can be flattened when opened, it is an ideal binding form.

Plastic ironing binding

This is a relatively advanced binding method, which is characterized in that signatures in the book block are bonded twice. The first bonding is to bond the plastic thread binding feet to the signature paper, so that the pages in the signature can be fixed. The second bonding is to bond the book block ironed with plastic wire into a book block through perfect bound. The book block made by this method is very firm, and because there is no need to mill the back and burr, it reduces the impact of poor glue on the binding quality. Impact. Plastic wire ironing was introduced to my country from Germany (former East Germany) as early as the mid-1970s, but it has not been popularized and applied in the mainland due to various reasons. But in other countries of the world, this binding technology is used more.
