Here is a transcript of this video: Welcome to MyBinding How To videos. Today we're answering the question how to bind your own book. Book binding can be understood simply as an outside cover being brought together with inside pages using some sort of bind. We call that binding. And you've probably guessed there are numerous ways of getting that done. What you've just seen is an example of thermal binding. That is where an outside cover has built-in adhesive into the spine. Pages are put into the spine of the book, the book is placed on a heating element of some sort, allowing the glue to adhere to the pages. Thermal binding is very simple and very impressive but can be a bit spendy. Many binding systems require both punching as well as binding when making your project. One example is binding with round plastic spines, called combs or comb binding. And there are plenty of machines on the market that can do this for you. There's also coil binding, which utilizes both wire as well as plastic coils. Many organizations utilize twin loop wire binding. These are strong and have a wide range of application. There are also very special binding systems that have been created for a certain look, like ProClick or Fastback. These systems can tend to cost a little more money, but they're very quick, very easy, and they look great.
