Hardcover: Color side sewn

(generally under 250 pages)

Is your book a handy size? One that has the reader in mind, and thus, is not several hundred pages long? This binding option combines Library Binding Institute recognized durability as a lower cost alternative to ALA Oversewing in books that don’t “have a weight problem”. Books with a spine up to 3/8″ don’t always need an Oversewn spine to last generations. A book of this size can have up to approximately 250 pages, depending on the thickness of paper utilized. The small weight of the book means that only readers will cause wear. The book itself will not be damaged during storage, as long as basic cautions are used – such as a flat, relatively dry surface.
