Hard or Soft binding? Contextual terminology dilemmas between education Institutions and bookbinders
Soft bindings are for these purposes requiring similar spine lettering to a finished Hard bound copy, also requiring to be free standing. Therefore, simple glue binding secured the pages, with a cloth wrap around cover with spine lettering, although Soft bindings had to adapt to a ‘free-standing’ therefore a thin board was introduced for Soft Bound option.
Hard bindings were post-Viva (after corrections were added/changed). The Hard copy was fit for the purpose of being added to the Universities/College Libraries, therefore had to withstand the weathers of use.
We at City Binders bookbinders will use our knowledge, experience to guide the bewildered student, to isolate your particular requirements and a combined effort of mutual understanding.
