No one ever accused Hagadone of being spineless.
When it comes to binding, the spine is where it all comes together – literally – and we use industry-leading equipment to make sure your paper-bound book, novel or magazine stands the test of quality. With our perfect binding, our Mueller Martini Norm Perfect Binder roughs the edge of a bound book, exposing paper fibers to the gluing process. This is far more effective, resulting in a much stronger bind. After collating and gluing, the face, head and foot are trimmed.

Binder can trim up to 5/8” inline. Offline for anything thicker.
We also offer Saddle Stitching services, which binds pages together by driving staples though the centerfold of a group of signatures (pages) after they are collated. Many magazines and newsletters are bound by saddle stitching.
