Tips and Tricks

Looks like someone finally heard our request… although it wasn’t BLURB.  Shutterfly now offers spiralbound picture books. The spine is not encased but it is still better than nothing. Cookbooks here I come!!  http://www.shutterfly.com/photo-gifts/notebooks

Maybe the term is "casewrapped". Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.

Add'l Binding options for Cookbook formats
Book Printing

Yes, at the time I’m posting this it has now been two years since that comment was made… I just emailed Blurb with a lay-flat/spiral binding request/wish. I wouldn’t care what method is used as long as it lays flat and still has a quality feel about it. I would definitely use it for cookbooks, instructional books, music and scrapbooking.  I have seen a number of spiral bound books that are then placed inside a hard cover so the spiral part is enclosed within the book (I’ll try to attach an image). That way titles can still be printed on the spine and it looks almost like a regular book when placed on a shelf.  I feel there is nothing cheap looking about this particular style of spiral/coil binding.  I’m sure it has a name, but I can’t seem to find the proper term.

Keep plugging away with requests to Blurb. I think if they ever decide to offer it, they will be glad they did. I don’t know of any other book product company that’s doing it. Sample coil/spiral binding
