Book Binding and Magazine Printing

If you already know which type of binding you want, you can navigate straight to the relevant page from the links above, but if you would like to find out more about the booklet printing and binding options available, take a look at each page and the “Discover more” section will tell you more about each binding method.

Below you will find a summary of the categories on our website. With each one, there is a choice of book size or you can select your own custom size. There is also a selection of standard and deluxe papers and weights for the inside pages and the cover, plus some additional lamination options where applicable.

  • Stapled Binding: also known as saddle stitch, two metal staples are inserted into the spine. A popular and affordable binding method.
  • Perfect Binding: this involves milling the binding edge and then gluing the pages to the cover. A sleek and cost-effective option, plus you can print the name of the publication on the spine, so it is ideal for book printing.
  • Wire-o Binding: also known as spiral binding, this gives you the flexibility of turning the pages 360 degrees and lying them flat so you can keep your hands free. Perfect for recipe books, manuals and brochures.
  • Sewn Binding: a classic method that is durable and sleek, ideal for prestigious magazine printing and book printing. Cover options include the possibility of adding flaps or case binding.
  • Special Finish Perfect Binding: for an extra-impressive look, add a special finish to your perfect bound publications. Choose from 3D varnish or gold or silver foil, ideal for the luxury sector.
  • Books: for a straightforward project, choose from six sizes and your book will be printed on 90 gsm uncoated paper, a great option for short print runs.
  • Unbound Sheets: with no binding or lamination options, this is a low-cost and convenient option if information is constantly changing and reprinting will be required. Printing will be on the front only in black and white.
  • Large print-run magazines: if you have a large print run to cater for, check out our range of options for magazine printing in the UK, designed especially for large quantities.

Don’t forget to order your accessories too! Pixartprinting can print your customised bookmarks to complement your books, or why not snap up our magazine display stands for a neat and professional way to promote your magazines?

Book printing

If you decide to opt for perfect binding, your book will be printed on Classic uncoated - Brilliant white uncoated paper and you can add gloss, matt or soft-touch lamination to the cover. With sewn binding, on the other hand, there is a choice of Classic uncoated - Brilliant white uncoated paper or ivory uncoated paper, with a laminated 300 gsm cover with optional flaps.
