The perfect binding for Paperback Books

November 7, 2011 · Print This Article

Shopping around for book binding and finishing solutions is an exciting time – your book deal has been signed and you are ready to start marketing and distributing your paperback book!

Paperback books are the ideal candidates for the perfect binding and finishing method. With this binding method, the pages of the book are pressed together and the edges of the pages are roughened and flattened before a special adhesive is used to attach them to one another.

Here are some of the main advantages of choosing perfect binding for your paperback book:

  • Professional appearance: Your book will look sleek and professional when you choose the perfect binding method. Telephone directories, magazines and booklets all use perfect book binding.
  • Durable: Perfect book binding ensures that your pages don’t start falling out the minute somebody starts flicking through your book. The durability of perfect binding will add further appeal and value to your book.
  • Value for money: While perfect book binding isn’t the cheapest option on the market, it does offer a good return on investment because people are drawn to professionally printed books.
  • Sizes: If you are printing a thick book or novel, then perfect book binding is definitely the option for you because this binding method can successfully bind thick stacks of pages.

Binding and finishing

Selecting the correct binding for your book is not only important, but key to its presentation. Although many people say they don’t to judge a book by its cover, the marketability of your book will depend on the quality and appearance of the publication. You need to picture how you would like your book to appear in-store and use that vision to guide you through the correct binding and finishing process.
