HALF CANADIAN BINDING: Give your print some spine

Wiro binding can be a really creative yet user-friendly way to help a high-end booklet stand out (see our L’Oreal project as a case in point).  But sometimes it’s better to have the wire hidden away and that’s where ‘Canadian’ Binding comes into play.

What is Half-Canadian binding?

Half-Canadian binding hides the binding almost entirely using a wrap-around card cover, leaving just a subtle curve of wire exposed on the back cover (shown in the main image above).  Full Canadian binding is very similar but has the wire exposed on the front cover as well as the back.

Sometimes though, it’s all or nothing.  So when the wire needs to be completely smothered from the public eye, the stage is set for the ‘Cased-In Bind’ with hard cover. Here, the wiro-bound book is attached to the inside of a hardback case-bound cover.

So, if you need a really practical yet stylish twist for your much-used publications (catalogues, recipe books or manuals, for example) then you should definitely have a chat with us about how half and full Canadian binding could work for you.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I set up my file for a Half-Canadian bound brochure?

This isn’t actually too complicated, provided you liaise with us throughout the design process. Just set up the file as you would any other brochure but remember to check with us to get the spine width right. If you’re stuck, give our studio a shout on 01626 368992.

Can you laminate a Half-Canadian bound brochure cover?

Yes, certainly (in fact we highly recommend it for added protection, especially for hardcover case-bound books). Half Canadian bound books are usually used as manuals, instruction guides or recipe books which get a lot of use so it’s pretty important to protect it.
