PaperSpecs Releases Free Ultimate Guide to Binding

Press release from the issuing company

Palo Alto, Calif. – Smyth, Singer, screw, stab, stitch … Print binding options can be confusing, even for the pros.

To help designers select the perfect binding technique for every budget and project, PaperSpecs now offers the exclusive 20-page “Binding Cheat Sheet: The Ultimate Guide to Binding” as a free download.

“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve come across books, catalogs and marketing pieces that were absolutely gorgeous, yet they were let down by their binding,” explains PaperSpecs Founder Sabine Lenz. “Designers are often not aware of all the options available to them, or which technique to use to show off the features of their piece. Nor even which ones will best withstand repeated openings, or other factors that couldn’t be foreseen without prior knowledge.”

PaperSpecs’ new Binding Cheat Sheet shows designers which binding best suits their needs, while also providing tips on how to make their project stand out from the rest. Featuring:

  • A handy overview of 15 different binding options, from perfect and tape binding to Swiss binding and French folds
  • Easy to follow diagrams, page counts and relative costs
  • Detailed explanations of how each technique is applied
  • Sumptuous photographic examples of each
  • Tips on how to “break the rules” of each technique to achieve a special look all one’s own
  • and more!

Graphic designers can download a free copy of the 20-page, ultimate guide to binding by going to BindingCheatSheet.com.
