When you want to print exclusive books or publications that need to maintain lasting value is the traditional hardcover of the right decision. Hardcover or so called Italian binding is a durable and robust binding in which the hardboard cover protects the book block.

Hardcover books are among the most demanding graphic products, the production process consists of several technological operations, so the production is longer and consequently more expensive.

Unlike soft binding, where the book block is sewn with thread, a hardcover book follows the same procedure, except that in this case we apply a strip of glue on the back and front of the book block to which we glue (front and back) a binding or connecting sheet. .

he material for the binding sheet is usually white wood-free - uncoated paper (170 g / m2), also available in different colors (red, black, green, brown), but it can also be printed.

This is followed by applying glue to the back of the book block, drying and trimming the book block to the final format.
The next operation is to form a book block (flat or round back), add a pointer tape, glue gauze and a capital tape. This completes the bookbinding block, followed by the production of a hard cover.

The base for the hard cover is cardboard for the sides, a back insert and a printed coating material, which is glued to the cardboard with hot glue.

The coating material is protected with a laminating foil and, if desired, can be enriched with 3D partial varnish or hot foil printing.

This is followed by the embedding of the book block, in which the machine smears the bookbinding block - the binding sheet with glue and glues it to the cover. So we get a hardcover book.

Did you know that the oldest surviving book was written in China in 868? For each of its pages, they cut out a wooden board or cliché on which was a mirror image of the text. By rubbing, they imprinted the imprint deep into the paper. The first books of woodcuts, known as woodcut books, spread mainly in the 14th century. They were made of folded and sewn sheets.




How to decide which binding to choose?

 

The most important factor in choosing a binding is the number of sheets or pages of a book block. If the book block has e.g. less than 32 pages, only binding with a metal spiral or sewing with wire or staple (notebook) is possible.

When the book block exceeds 80 pages or. the thickness of the back is greater than approx. 4 mm, wire binding is technically impossible to make due to the excessive thickness of the back. Even in the case of choosing a spiral binding, the thickness of the back is limited to a maximum of 23 mm.

For larger publications from 32 pages onwards, a soft cover is available. There are two ways to make a soft binding. In the first method of soft binding, the back of the book block is cut and glued to the cover, in the second method of soft binding, which provides a more durable binding, the book block is first sewn with thread or. thread and then glued to the cover. Both methods of soft binding are available from approx. 32 pages onwards, up to 800 pages or more, or up to a maximum back thickness not exceeding 50 mm.

If the printed matter is intended for rare or occasional reading, then choose a soft binding by milling and gluing, but if there is a requirement for more durable printed matter, which is often used, then we suggest a binding in which the book block is sewn with thread. In the end, opt for a cover, which can be made of cardboard (soft binding) or cardboard (hard binding).
