Binding Services

Vinabinding (Flex-M) - This process converts paperback to hardback. The original cover is removed, bound to acid-free binder board, laminated and reattached. Tightly woven back lining cloth is used to reinforce the spine. Some titles require sewn binding reinforcement (noextra charge). Vinabinding typically extends the life of paperbacks by 8-9 times. A minimum number of 15 books per order applies. We send out for this service to a separate vendor, which will typically take 1-2 weeks, depending on the number of books.

Kapco Easy Covers - Protects paperbacks using self-adhesive, 1.5 mil, clear polyester book covers. Additionally secured with reinforcement tape applied to the front and back hinges. Wipes clean and will not crack, yellow or dry-out. Typically extends the life of paper-backs by 5-6 times.

Mylar Covers - Protects hardcover books with dust jackets using a 1.5 mil, clear polyester book cover. Mylar covers attached with acid free, non-yellowing adhesive tape.
