Case Bound (Hardcover) Books
Case binding is a traditional method of bookbinding. The covers of casebound (hardcover) books are made by wrapping board with printed paper or other materials like book cloth, linen, or leather. Our process includes making the cases, adding head & tail bands, Smyth sewing or perfect binding, and then casing-in. We can also add features likes foil stamping on the cover and spine and bookmarks.
