Are you a do-it-yourselfer and want to go the cheap route? Assess your needs before investing in book binding. If you are looking to publish a fairly short publication (like a thesis, brochure, or manual), and don't need fancy, expensive binding try tape and staple binding. The tape and staple type of binding is often used for smaller print runs of books printed on 8 1/2 by 11-inch paper. The book is sewn or stapled together along the spine, and then tape is place over the staples or sewing.
*This book does not have a title on the spine, so it can be hard to market to booksellers.
