Product Overview

If your document is too thick to be saddle-stitched or stapled, then perfect bound book printing is your perfect option.

Perfect bound printing is commonly used for magazines, brochures and thicker reports, this method binds your document together with adhesive along the spine to provide a smooth and stylish finish. When designing your perfect bound book you need to allow 7mm safe area at the spine edge of the first and last inside text page and inside front and back cover page.  We crease the cover 7mm from the spine to create a hinge that protects the glued edge.  It’s professional in appearance, cost effective - even for low quantities - and a great option for documents from 40 up to 700 printed pages. No wonder it’s so popular!  

We only use PUR glue to perfect bind our books as it is much stronger than old-fashioned hot melt glue. PUR binding is more tolerant to higher and lower temperatures as is very flexible and non-brittle, meaning books open flatter without cracking the spine or pages falling out.

Whether you’re publishing a bestseller, producing a glossy manual or distributing your annual report, we can help.

We have a great range of paper and finishes to choose from, with the option of matt or gloss lamination. Choose from silk, gloss or uncoated for your cover (250gsm to 350gsm), with gloss, matt or no lamination.  We recommend you always matt laminate your cover for a quality finish. Our perfect bound books are available in A4 portrait, 1/3 A4 portrait, A5 portrait or landscape or 210 x 210mm square. Your inner (text) pages can be uncoated, silk or gloss, in weights ranging from 100gsm to 150gsm. 

 

Paper Options

Silk
Silk coated paper has a smooth feel with a discreet surface sheen. It offers excellent ink to paper contrast, and printed colours appear distinct and clear. A recycled option is available. (Cover 250gsm – 350gsm; inner text 130gsm – 150gsm)

Gloss
Gloss coated paper has a shiny surface and very smooth finish. Colour is sharp and stands out well. Ink dries quickly and the need for lamination is reduced. (Cover 250gsm - 350gsm; inner text 130gsm – 150gsm)

Premium uncoated
Our premium uncoated paper is absorbent. Printed inks appear flatter due to this absorbency, and the paper has a soft finish. A recycled option is available. (Cover 250gsm – 300gsm; inner text 100gsm – 120gsm)

Finishes

Matt lamination gives a soft, contemporary effect. Gloss lamination gives a higher quality shine finish than gloss card. Lamination is most useful with solid colours or images to enhance their vibrancy or where you want to protect your printed documents. The most popualr option is to matt laminate your cover.
