- Saddle-stitch: Printed pages are folded and then stapled along the fold, allowing pages to lie flat.
- Perfect Bound: Pages in a perfect bound book are gathered into sets of pages called signatures, then glued together and into a cover.
- Mechanical: There are many types of mechanical bindings, including comb, double wire and plastic coil bindings (typical for cookbooks and other books whose pages must lie flat). Velobind is a plastic grip binding, which is most commonly used on reports and presentations.
- Notepad: Single sheets of paper are gathered and glued along one edge.
- Paste: An alternative to saddle-stitching in which each page is glued to the page before it. This method is only appropriate for short booklets made of relatively lightweight paper.
