Japanese stab binding
Stock: most types of papers-handmade, commercial or tracing papers, even acetate can be used for Japanese stab binding. If the book will contain writing, the paper must be smooth. Inexpensive photocopy paper is also fine for text pages, and has the added benefit of being readily available and cut to a standard size. Although the cover for this binding is always soft, it can be single sheets of heavy card-weight paper, single sheets with a turned-in flap, or sheets doubled over. The cover also can be one piece that wraps around the spine to give the pages more protection.
Cost: cheap, price of stock and thread
How it could be reproduced: I think I could do a lot of this process on my own although I would need help it punching the holes. If I was to practice this in the studio I could try a thinner option and just use a whole punch.
Used for binding loose sheets, pillar and post screws are used to secure the printed document. Commonly used for product swatches, photo albums, bespoke brochures etc. Binding Screws are a print finishing process (after printing).
Stock: page sheets and cover
Cost: cost of stock and screws
Process: The pages are gathered in order, drilled, and the pillars and posts are inserted until they meet - they are secure by screwing the pillar and post together.
How it could be reproduced: I think this is a process that I definitely couldn't do on my own within the studio
Time: I think this will be quite a long process.
