Saddle Stitch

Two silver staples attaching folded sheets of paper nested within one another, the binding always requires a number of pages divisible of 4.

Wire Bound

Individual pages punched along one edge with a wire inserted to hold all pages in place. Wire colours available include: Silver, Bronze, Black and White.

Half Canadian Wire Bound

Similar to our wire binding however the cover is printed as a spread and wraps around the whole book. So the wire is hidden from the front and side.

PUR (Perfect Binding)

PUR binding sometimes know as perfect binding is when the inner pages are glued to the cover creating a paperback book.

Case Bound Books

Also known as hard cover binding, we offer short run case binding in a range of Buckram cloth colours or as Paper Laminated Cases. Paper Laminated Cases (PLC) carry a full colour laminated image over the entire cover. Buckram Cloth Cases are wrapped in cloth with gold, silver or white text on spine and cover. Cases are hand-made and are offered as an add-on option for small run additional copies when doing a soft cover print run.


Many universities require case bound record copies from PHD graduates. Bytes’n Colours provide this whether single copy or multiple. Each university has specific formatting requirements. It is important that this compliance is checked prior to submitting for print.
