Cerlox Binding

Cerlox binding (sometimes referred to as comb binding) is a cost-effective binding that has been around many years and allows the book to lie flat on the counter (great for cookbooks) or on your lap. Cerlox binding is ideal for books that you need to add or remove pages from easily.


We have a self-serve machine for customers to use and employees who are anxious to show you how to get to work. When binding books yourself, the only charge to you is the cerlox element that you use.

  • Cerlox binding elements
    • We have a wide variety of sizes for you to choose from, ranging from 1/4″ thickness to 1.5″ thickness. Prices range depending on the size you select from 30¢ to 85¢ per book.

If you would prefer Stevenson’s to bind your books, labor is determined by the number of books we bind in addition to the cost of each cerlox element we use. Books are bound in a timely manner at our earliest convenience while working with your schedule.

  • Labor for us to bind
    • First Book                     $2.75
    • 20+ books                     $1.50/book
