Singer-sewn books, also known as singer-stitched books or singer-sewn bindings, are a type of bookbinding technique that holds together the pages of a book using a specific sewing pattern. The name "singer-sewn" comes from the use of Singer sewing machines, which were originally designed for fabric but were adapted for sewing book pages together.
While we have always offered high-quality printed books and a variety of book-binding options, we are happy to announce we have added lay-flat books featuring FlexBind sheets to the mix. The unique construction allows for pages to lie flat without affecting the overall integrity of the book. This is an excellent option for professional-looking books that will stand up to heavy use and last throughout multiple generations.
Whether you are looking for softcover or casebound, SunDance can help you create a lay-flat book that is sure to impress!
We are proud to increase our bookbinding capabilities and production with the purchase of the Horizon BQ-470 Perfect Binder. The Horizon BQ-470 will allow SunDance to have greater bookbinding precision and produce higher quality binding for book products like presentations, note pads, menus, and more.
“The Perfect Binder’s versatility and precision is a great addition to SunDance’s bookbinding services,” said JohnHenry Ruggieri, the president of SunDance. “With the new equipment, customers will be able to get the exact bookbinding they need to ensure their book opens and closes with ease.”
