- With the closing of Library Binding, I am looking into alternate Binderies that I can recommend. Some such as Long’s Roullet (waiting for an email reply to send a test bind out), Single Bound Studios (likewise waiting on an email reply before sending in a test volume), and Houchen – the company that bought out LibraryBinding
- I created a Custom Cover Guide that you can use to generate a 350dpi guide that you can use to prepare your graphics for your binder of choice. This guide provides a 1″ border or turn-in section and zero padding on the spine measurements. Measure your comics by pressing them flat and measuring the thickness on the edge without the staples.
