What are perfect bound books?

Perfect Bound books are bookshop quality and are bound using a hot melt binder, often referred to as a ‘Perfect Binder’.

The process of perfect binding involves the milling of the spine edge of the unbound book to create a rough surface for the glue to bond to. The book block then passes over a very hot glue tank where glue is applied by a revolving wheel. The pre creased cover is pressure clamped on to the book block and the glue is allowed to set. Once cooled, the bound books are then trimmed flush to the desired finished size. Novels, Poetry Books, Holiday / Travel Guides, Academic, Children’s Story Books and many Trade Books are generally bound using the Perfect Binding method.

Our book packages

We offer perfect bound books in four different sizes – A6, A5, or Royal or A4 – in either full colour or black and white. All of our perfect bound book covers are printed in colour as standard using thick 300gsm board stock that is laminated in either gloss or matt. Books need to have a minimum of 25 pages and we offer three sized up to 600 pages total.

Our packages come with full book design for print included – we will ensure all the technical and formatting details are delivered correctly such as margins, bleed and fonts so all you have to do is deliver the text in just one document. We also offer a scanning service to those writers that would like to supply illustrations for their book.
