Binding

DCL Services offers two types of binding.

  • HEAT-BINDING:

Cloth binding with super-glue strips. Heat-binding strips come in a variety of widths and colors and are very durable.

  • COMB/SPIRAL-BINDING:

Comb/Spiral-binding comes in comb sizes ranging from 1/4" (approximately 35 pages) to 2" (approximately 425 pages) in a variety of colors. You can add index tabs and inserts to the book. Comb/spiral-binding is easy to disassemble, allowing you to add or delete material after the book has been bound.

  • TRANSPARENCY COVERS:

We also offer clear plastic (transparency) covers for both heat-binding and comb/spiral-binding projects to protect your cover.

Note: If you have more than the quota for the binding method you choose, consider separating your materials into two or more volumes. This is a great idea for course packets. Many faculty split their material at the semester break. The students like this idea as well.

Suggestion: You can collect a series of research papers or other materials and have them bound into one book for storage. The book can be placed in a bookcase, instead of using up filing space.

Black & White

Important: Specify in your order if your attachment(s) were created on a PC or Mac computer.

Commonly asked questions:

1. If I have one-sided copies and want them printed two-sided, how do I complete the order form?

Answer: Write the number of originals and the number of copies you need in the blocks for TWO-SIDED copies (not one-sided).

2. If my originals are already two-sided and I want copies printed two-sided, how do I complete the order form?

Answer: Count both sides of your two-sided copies as single sheets and enter the number of originals (i.e., 3 two-sided sheets = 6 single sheets) and fill in the number of copies you need in the TWO-SIDED copies.

NOTE: Remember to indicate if you want your copies stapled and/or 3-hole punched and the paper size.
