What are some typical book binding techniques?

There are many types of bindings available for your book. Gluing the outside edge to create a flat edge; excellent for books, corporate reports, manuals, brochures, and annual reports. Using one or more staples on the fold; excellent for booklets, brochures, newsletters, pamphlets, direct mailers and catalogs. Stapling your book together on the side rather than the fold; excellent for booklets, brochures, direct mailers, and pamphlets. Your sewn book adhered to a hard cover to create the highest quality hard cover binding for books. A continuous hinge of double loops of wire to hold the book together. Excellent for upscale brochures, reference manuals, cookbooks, and calendars.
