Perfect Bound Books For a Seamless and Professional Look

Perfect binding is best suited for books or documents with more than 40 pages. The pages are glued together at the spine with a wrap-around cover being held together with a strong and flexible hot glue process. The other three sides of the book are then machine trimmed as required to give them the ‘perfect’ edges.

 

When to Use Perfect Bound Books

Perfect binding is ideally suited for Presentations, Proposals, Brochures, Reports, Manuals, Workbooks, Trade show materials & more.

Available in:
Custom and standard sizes that includes A6, A5, A4 and A4+

Quick Tip:
For a longer lasting book, we recommend to keep the covers single sided or text only for the inner covers.

Perfect Bound Books FAQs

What size books do you produce?

We can print almost any custom-sized book, brochure or booklet. However, the standard UK sizes A6, A5, A4 and A3. If you need some guidance from our creative team please feel free to contact us.

How do I make my Perfect Bound Book ready to print?

Print ready book files should submitted in PDF format, 300dpi with crop marks and a 3mm bleed. We recommend all text and layout to be at least 5mm from the edge of the artwork. The inner pages should be supplied as a single page PDF document. The cover should be supplied separately in as a spread that includes the size of the spine. The size of the spine is dependent on the number of pages in your document. Not sure what’s the size of your spine?  Contact us for guidance to the correct size.

How can I check the colours of my file will print correctly

Files for digital printing should be supplied in CMYK colour format. Files supplied in RGB and Pantones may have different results from that seen on screen.

How can I set up my file for speciality ink finishes?

Layers of your artwork that require speciality inks should be vectorised and changed to magenta. Here’s a full guide for more creative metallic ink finishes.

How can I choose the best paper for my Perfect Bound Book?

White/ Lightly Coloured Smooth Papers: Best for designs with a solid colour or image background. Works best with additional matt or gloss lamination finishes or white, clear or speciality inks such as white, clear or metallic inks.

Deep Coloured Smooth Papers: Works well for designs with plain backgrounds and speciality inks such as white, clear or metallic inks.

All Textured Papers: Works well for designs with plain backgrounds and speciality inks such as white, clear or metallic inks.
