The #1 binding option for softcover books.

Perfect binding has rapidly become the leading choice for softcover books, especially paperbacks. It is very popular in the business world because it delivers a high-quality presentation at a very reasonable cost. Perfect binding is frequently used for corporate reports, catalogs, product brochures, manuals, and magazines.

Perfect bound books costs less to produce than hardcover books, and the square spine allows for printing on it. Perfect binding produces a strong, durable spine that won’t crack or break due to extreme high or low temperatures. The low production costs make perfect binding affordable for short-run print projects.

    What is perfect binding?

    Perfect binding uses glue as an adhesive to stick the interior pages and the cover together.

    Perfect bound books are more commonly known as soft-cover books, which you may find in your own library.

    What type of glue do you use?

    There are two types of glue that we use, depending on what product you order. Our standard perfect bound books use EVA glue, whereas our PUR perfect bound books use PUR glue.

    PUR glue is used for books that require a stronger bind. This includes book applications that required durable, lay-flat binding or books with over 150 pages.

    Why is it called perfect binding?

    Before binding, the pages and the cover are cut to the exact same size. This enables them to line up perfectly during the binding process so that no pages stick out farther than any other.

    What is the best page count for perfect binding books?

    It depends on the thickness of the paper and the number of pages. Generally speaking, perfecting binding is not well suited for books with a minimal number of pages. The more pages in the book, the more perfect binding becomes the best option.

    Can I put printing on the spine of a perfect bound book?

    Yes. Perfect binding creates a flat spine that allows for printing the name of the book and the author.

    Which is better – perfect binding or hardcover binding?

    It depends on many factors, including the number of pages and how long you want the book to last. For the right book project, perfect binding offers several advantages over hardcover binding.

    • Lighter in weight
    • Faster turnaround time
    • Ability to lay the book flat without damaging it
    • Lower cost than hardback
    What are the most common uses for Perfect Bound Books?

    Because perfect binding is such a versatile product, we see this type of binding used for catalogs, magazines, manuals, self-published books, children’s books and much more.
