Midstates, Inc. offers a wide array of binding options to suit your needs.

Do you have book that has a large number of pages?
Perfect Binding may be the solution for you - it adheres the pages together with a flexible adhesive for a high quality finish.

Do you have a small booklet or calendar?
Saddle stitching is just what you’ll need- it secures the folded pages of the book with staples placed in the middle of the spine.

Do you have a presentation or proposal that needs a professional look?
Spiral binding or comb binding may be the choice for you. Spiral binding is done by punching the edge of the pages with holes winding a coil through to secure the pages. Spiral binding allows the pages to be opened 360 degrees. Comb binding is a spine with teeth that feed through the punched holes. This type of binding allows the piece to lay flat but cannot be opened 360 degrees.

Do you have a more complicated project?
Midstates, Inc. also offers selective binding, which allows you to have different covers on different body pages based on the intended recipient.
