All books are bound by semi-automatic machines with the adhesive applied by rollers. By double fanning the leaves the glue is absorbed at both the back of the hardback book block and, between the edge of each page. This can be combined with notching which allows yet more glue into the spine for greater strength. The spines remain flexible with great opening characteristics. Unsewn binding is the least expensive alternative to sewn bindings and our choice of spine preparations. Application of adhesives is an excellent choice when you need to trim production costs yet still want to retain good quality.
