Locate professional bookbinding services and bookbinding supplies for in-house bindingWhen you need bookbinding services for materials to send to your customers or in-house manuals for employees or contractors, there are many options at your disposal. Full-service shops can address many things, but for projects that are fairly small and simple (like bookbinding a book) you might be able to meet all or part of your needs in-house.
Get professional-looking materials whether you go the professional bookbinding route or if you purchase your own bookbinding supplies and try bookbinding by hand. Based on your business, the latter is more flexible and you should:
1. Assess the frequency of your bookbinding needs. Find professional bookbinding services locally or online based on your assessment.
2. Locate the best bookbinding machine for your business if you decide to do it in-house.
3. Select bookbinding supplies to go along with your bookbinding machine.

Locate an in-house bookbinding machineInvesting in a bookbinding machine to meet your business needs pays off for many recurring and ad-hoc projects. Machines are available in many price ranges to perform different types of binding. Evaluate the look you want to have for your business and select from any number of spiral binds, including twin loop, wire, plastic coil and others.
Select your bookbinding suppliesYour supply needs for in-house binding are minimal. At best you'll need paper, covers and the appropriate binding coils based on the machine you've selected. You can have custom covers printed or create them in-house, depending on your business needs.
- When doing handmade bookbinding in-house, you can save time by sending out the print portion of your package to your local print shop and save wear and tear on your business printer.
- If you have a document that changes regularly, it's good to leave your extra stock of the document unbound. When changes are made, your administrative staff can replace only the pages affected and reduce waste.
