endsheets for side sewing

Side sewing is a common method for binding a book because it's durable and fairly economical. It's very popular for photo books, yearbooks, textbooks and children's books. 

LBS offers three endsheets designed for use on side-sewn books.  
 
Singer Side-Sew Endsheet

  endsheet Q&A

Q Why do I need cloth reinforcing tape on endsheets for side-sewn books?

When you open a side-sewn book you're actually bending the paper at the stiches creating a potential weak point. The cloth tape on our Singer and Single Page Reinforced endsheets holds the stiches and keeps the paper from perforating and falling apart. 

Many binderies prefer the standard Singer Side-Sew Endsheet because the cloth reinforcing is visible - featuring the bindings durability and potentially increasing the perceived value of the book. If you need the durability but prefer not to see the cloth, choose the Folded Singer Endsheet or the Single Page Reinforced - depending on whether a flyleaf is desired.
