How Your Book Binding Choice Matters


When considering publishing a book intended for frequent use, it is important to consider the advantages of spiral binding and book fulfillment – to accomplish things you may not be able to do with print-on-demand. Spiral is highly user-friendly and is especially popular for cookbooks and manuals due to its exceptional durability. One of the most significant benefits of spiral books is that they allow readers to keep them open to specific pages without causing damage to the binding, offering unparalleled convenience and usability that is not found with hardcover or paperback bindings.

In today's market, plastic spiral bindings are the most popular choice, offering a wide array of color options and significant advantages over traditional metal bindings, such as increased durability, lighter weight, and longevity. For heavily used books, it is crucial to consider factors such as size, weight, and readability. Larger font sizes can significantly improve readability, especially for cookbooks and manuals used by individuals of different ages. While increasing the font size may result in a higher page count, it is necessary to strike a balance between size and weight while ensuring readability.

Additionally, it is essential to take into consideration any feedback received from readers following the printing of a first edition, as it may significantly impact future printings. The choice of binding for books communicates a great deal. For instance, the most popular and widely read books are typically available in paperback editions, while hardcover books convey a sense of weight and permanence, making them appear more valuable. When giving a serious book as a gift, it is often presented as a casebound edition. Paperback books are lighter, easier to carry, economical to print, and more practical for everyday use.

Over the years, perfect bound books have evolved, gaining popularity due to quality improvements. The choice of book bindings and printing, in general, is of paramount importance for self-publishers, who must compete against books from traditional publishers. Despite the availability of eBook and audiobook versions, more than 80 percent of books are still read in physical copy form. It underscores the importance of remaining competitive in the printed edition market, making considerations such as the user-friendly nature of spiral binding especially relevant, particularly within specific genres.
