Binding Services – Perfect Bound Magazines and Booklets

The Second binding type we offer is Perfect Binding. Perfect Binding is a glue binding that most Paperback Books use. Think of Vanity Fair. It has a squared spine and, provided the spine is large enough and the necessary spine data is submitted, can be printed on. Perfect Binding must be at least 40 pages and increments in 2-page increase to over 500 pages.

Both Saddle Stitch and Perfect Binding can have Covers or be Self Covered. For certain cover stocks, we also offer options like aqueous coating and spot UV.

There is a lot to know about papers, but here is a quick rundown.

  • Gloss Papers: Glossy papers are best in magazines and monthly/quarterly readers. They offer the best (lowest) cost while being excellent quality.
  • Matte Papers: Matte papers are typically chosen for high-end fashion and publications for the Arts. While the paper offers excellent quality and a unique feel, don’t use in environments where readers will have dirty hands as dirt transfer is common (i.e. construction).
  • Bond Papers: Bond papers are good in products that need to be written in. This paper offers good quality and is a perfect fit for things like workbooks and coloring books.
