Beginners Guide to Book Binding : Book Binding Tools & Supplies


Hi! I’m Gary for Expert Village. Some different
types of supplies that you can get would be first of all different size needles for the
different types of books that you are doing and also the quality of the thread; different
types of threads. These are all different things that you would get. Also instead of
using a home drill, they have certain book binding drills which are more hand held models.
Some are electric that actually also work as a drill bit but other ones are just kind
of push hard very thick kind of needle, sharp object through pages. It is usually used for
obviously more thin books or different types of pamphlets and brochures. Not very heavy
books but it is type of book binding drill that is very easy to use and you don’t have
to have a big heavy duty drill and you can use like a home drill. If the front cover
is off your book, you want to replace it or if you have a soft cover book and you want
to put a hard cover on it, you can buy this material; this heavy cardboard type of material
to act as a cover for the book. Obviously it won’t have a graphic. It will just be a
plain brown board. It’s called the binder’s board but it is the same exact material and
what you would do is cut it to the size of the book and you would place it on top of
the pages. Basically as if it were the actual original cover of the book and when you drill
your holes, you would drill through that board and then you would string it up just as if
it were attached. Then what you would obviously do is put the tape along the whole sides because
you are not going to have anything going down the middle. You are only going to have a board
on one side and a board on the other side. So you would want to put tape all the way
down and that would give it a nice clean look and you won’t even be able to tell there was
never a back on the book. You will really look like a total replacement. That is basically
all you would really need to get started in book binding either for home or semi professional
kind of work.
