HALF CANADIAN BINDING?
Wiro binding can be a really creative feature 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.
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' (that's the image bottom right). Here, the wiro-bound book is attached to the inside of a hardback casebound cover. Ultimately impressive.
So, if you need a really practical yet stylish twist for your much-used publications (catalogues or manuals, for example) then you should definitely have a chat with us about how half and full canadian binding could work for you.
