When a short piece of wire is bent so as to bind together papers by driving the ends through the sheets and clinching them on the other side.
When pages and cover are glued together at the spine with a strong yet flexible thermal glue. The other three sides of the book are then trimmed as needed to give them clean â€œperfectâ€ edges.
When pages are fastened together by a spiral of wire or plastic that coils through a series of holes punched along one side of each page and the front and back covers. Black plastic coil-binding is standard at Printing Services, but other colors are available.
A type of thermal binding that uses a machine to heat and apply ready-glued strips to the spine of a book or document, creating a strong and semi-permanent binding. Hardback covers are also an option.
The method in which folded sheets are gathered together one inside the other and then stapled through the fold line with wire staples. The staples pass through the folded crease from the outside and are clinched between the centermost pages. Two staples are commonly used but larger books may require more staples along the spine.

Hole size options include standard 1/4â€, Large 3/8â€ and calendar 3/16â€. Standard 1/4â€ holes will be used except when size is specified in additional Instructions.
