Boardless Case Binding

What is boardless case binding?


Boardless Case Bound

Boardless case binding is a little known binding option that’s unique and charming. This special cover option has the finish and construction of our case bound books without the rigid board inserted between the covers. The end result is a pliable soft cover with a pronounced durable edge. An excellent alternative for children’s books or journals that is sturdier than a softcover, but friendlier than its case bound cousins.

Boardless case binding can be matched with our other materials and finishes for an extra special outcome. Ask for gloss or matte lamination, pair it with foil stamping or a spot varnish. Heck, we can even replace the paper with our cloth or faux leather. Stand apart from the pack with this delightful option.
