The appearance and quality of the work after it leaves the bookbinding room is real is an art.

Collecting and assembling the printed books, magazines, brochures and all similar written or illustrated papers in the order of the page and form, and putting a container on them as a cover after they form a block, and after they form a block, they are put together as a cover. Binding is called binding, and this art is called the art of bookbinding. This is just a valid explanation as a general diagnosis. Binding does not mean the binding of a book or a magazine. For example, a job came to be printed on the printing press. The paper to be printed is cut to the desired size and loaded into the machine.

After printing, the sheets are folded consecutively with page numbers, sewn in sequence or fastened with saddle stitching (stapling), pleating, going through processes such as embossing.

Today, the work of bookbinders has advanced immensely. With the development of technology, blending of jerseys, stitched glue, capping, cutting processes, even packaging processes (bagging) are made by machines. After printing, it serves as a mirror that shows the final status of a printed job.

No matter how perfect the preparation, film paper printing, the look and quality of this work after leaving the bookbinding house is a real art. Let's remember the events that are caused by some faulty bindings that we live today and that disturb us (we definitely experience). You want to buy a book. You got the book you liked. The binding cover is crooked, the forms are mixed, the cellophane is swollen, the edges are crooked and wrongly cut, would you buy this book? Or would you prefer a neater book without these mistakes?

Here, the most important part of post-printing, the bookbinding business, is revealed how important it is.
