Watch a General Overview About Our MackinBounds!

Durable Class A Bindings,
Flat and Flexible Spines

Sewn MackinBound books are manufactured with high-strength polyester thread, and glued MackinBound books feature a durable double-fan binding. We use only PVA cold glue, which is very flexible and will not crack over time. All spines are built with flexi-board, keeping the spine flat and easy to read.

High-density binderboard (88 point thickness) is used to construct MackinBound covers, meeting strength specifications for Class A library binding.
