Perfect bound booklets are a popular choice for many businesses wishing to have a professional edge when it comes to printed marketing material because the perfect binding process provides an expensive look and feel for high-end brochures, magazines and catalogues. Of course, other binding options such as saddle-stitch or wiro bound work well for document printing but there are a few good reasons why we think perfect binding is the perfect choice for booklets between 40 and 700 pages long.
What is Perfect Binding?
With perfect bound printing, all the pages of your document are stacked into a perfectly squared block. Then a strong, flexible glue is applied to the rear edge of the block before the cover is wrapped around the pages, bonding the entire publication along the spine.
Once the glue is dry and cured, we trim the three open edges of the paper and cover, so that your publication is perfectly square. The strength and smooth, clean finish of perfect bound booklets makes it a hugely popular method for binding larger documents, and the vast majority of thicker magazines, catalogues, brochures and books are perfect bound.
