One size does not fit all when it comes to binding style. Both form and function need to be considered when making a decision as to which style is best for your project. You should be asking some questions before reaching a final decision:

  • Will the style fit our image or brand?
  • Will we need to mail these documents?
  • Do we need the pages to lay flat or rotate 360 degrees?
  • Do we need to edit our documents after binding?
  • What are the cost of the supplies?
