Re: [BKARTS] Faulty Binding



Hello Mr. Bronsteen -

I believe the previous posters on this issue are correct, and any attempt to mend the failing bindings will only cause more damage to your volumes.  You might consider using a commercial bindery to have them rebound.  Depending on the quantity involved, the pricing can be quite competitive.  If you are interested, I work at a division of The HF Group, LLC and would be happy to give you a quote.

Subject: [BKARTS] Faulty Binding

I have some books which are paperback containing 304 pages plus
covers.They were printed commercially in Atlanta and some of the
pages easily come loose from the binding. I tried to attach these
pages  using self-adhesive Linen Hinging Tape and/or Easy/Bind Clear
Polyester Tape. This works OK if just one or two pages are
"contaminated", but for a larger number of pages it gets too bulky
and sometimes the hinging just pulls other sheets away from the
binding. The  binding glue that was used is impossible to remove and
if I try to glue pages to the hardened glue  the results are not
satisfactory, and the pages stick out from the rest. After complaints
to the printer he printed some over with a different glue. but the
results were just as bad. Any suggestions?
