Sewn bindings for commercial printing books
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/20/2011  Keywords: Sewn bindings for commercial printing

Adhesive binding for commercial printing books methods are commonly used for paperbacks and some hardbacks. Perfect binding is used typically for cheap brochure printing paperbacks - the spine folds of the sections are cut off and the spine edge of the now individual leaves roughened. Glue is applied to hold the leaves together and to stick the printed cover to the book, which is then trimmed on three sides. The cover may have been varnished (on a printing press or special machine) or laminated. Another method, cheaper than sewing but stronger and more expensive than perfect binding, is known variously as slotted, notch or burst binding. The spine folds of the sections are not cut off. Instead they are perforated during sheet folding. The binding machine merely injects the adhesive to hold together the folded sections, applies the cover and trims the book.

The printer/binder packs quantities of the book by shrink wrapping, parcelling or in cartons and delivers them on pallets to the publisher's specifi ed warehouse. Printers have traditionally delivered the bulk stock of new titles to the publisher's warehouse, which in turn ships them out to the main retailers and wholesalers. However, UK printers, competing on service against foreign printers, may deliver stock directly to some key customers. In the case of print journals, they may deliver to subscribers.

In 2006 22 per cent of adults bought books from a charity shop or other second-hand outlet. Oxfam has 100 specialist bookshops for hardcover book printing, alongside its sale of books in its other retail outlets. The internet has revolutionized the search and sale of second-hand books, Amazon sells second-hand copies through its Marketplace scheme and Abe Books lists over 100m new, used, rare, and out-of-print books from more than 13,500 booksellers.

As John Sutherland comments, most purchased books (look at your shelves) are read once, if that. Particularly with classics, canny readers are buying used copies off the web. In the course of time, the web may well function like a 19th-century circulating library, giving books multiple leases of life. Book printing company is concerned about the impact of second-hand sales on the sales of new books, and authors of course receive no royalties on sales past the initial purchase. Textbook book printing company has to issue new editions on a regular basis to counteract the attractions for students of buying second hand. There is also concern about the sale of used books described as being like new. These could be unwanted review copies or returns that have found their way into the second hand market.
