Print Finishing Advice

What is Perfect Binding?
Perfect binding is the finishing process for a booklet or catalogue like a soft cover book you might buy. They have a square, printed spine and the cover is usually made from a heavier paper stock or card stock than the interior pages. The pages and cover are glued together at the spine with a strong flexible thermal glue. The other three sides of the book are then trimmed down to give them clean “perfect” edges.
Perfect Bound books look extremely professional and are perfect for stacking lots of brochures or catalogues together as you can see the detail printed on the spine, something saddle stitch and spiral binding methods do not offer.
You can Perfect Bind a document from 15 sheets, anything less we recommend ‘Saddle Stitching’.
You will need to supply the spine artwork to the correct size as part of the job so get in touch once you have the document completed and we will let you know what size to set it to.
Make sure you allow for the extra 3-4mm gutter you will lose on each page and that there is enough trim width on the edges too. As you can see from the article on Michael Fassbender – even Empire Magazine can make mistakes!
