Thread sewing is a technological operation where a correctly placed book block is connected into a whole. The sewing machine sews a worn book block with the help of synthetic thread.

The machine first folds the individual bookbinding sheets in half and collects them in the correct order on the sewing saddle where the sewing takes place. From the lower side, the machine makes a hole with a piercing needle, through which a crochet hook and a needle with thread enter from the upper side.

When the needle and the hook are inside the sheet, the carrier transfers the thread from the needle to the hook. The crochet hook rotates 180 ° and thus makes a knot that allows the thread to be tightened and thus also to connect the individual bookbinding poles.

The needle and crochet are then returned from the sheet and the same process continues with the next bookbinding sheet.

When the last bookbinding sheet in the book block is sewn, the thread separates and the sewing of the new bookbinding block begins.
The stitching process follows, in which the stitching machine applies hot glue (Hotmelt) to the back of the book block, grooves the cover (4x) on the other side and assembles and glues them together. The brochure is then trimmed from three pages to the final format.

Brochures are usually printed on coated or uncoated offset paper, which can also be bulky or 100% recycled, with a range from 32 pages onwards, up to +700 pages, or a maximum book block thickness of 50 mm.

The cover of the brochure is printed on thicker papers - cardboard, with the option of laminating foil and 3D partial varnishing. If desired, the cover is extended with flaps.

The advantage of binding sewn with thread is in durability of the brochure, as the sheets cannot fall out with this binding and is thus suitable for more durable products, which are often in use and often open.

Quality and fast printing, and binding of all types of booklets, catalogs, brochures, annual reports, proceedings ...

 

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).
