Perfect Bound Book Printing for Magazines, Catalogues and Books

The Perfect Bound Book

An alternative to stitch binding is perfect binding, a cheap and cost-effective way to create professional looking publications including books and catalogues. Perfect binding consists of milling the binding edge of your interior pages and then affixing this to your chosen cover.

Perfect bound printing is a popular choice for books and catalogues as it has a number of benefits. It makes sense financially as it’s cheaper than hardcover yet still looks sleek and gives you the high-quality aesthetic you’re seeking. The added bonus is that the name of the publication can be printed on the spine, making it ideal for books or catalogues.

Pixartprinting provides a wide range of customisation options enabling clients to create perfect bound book printing jobs, each with their own paper type and cover designs. If you require other forms of binding please visit our stapled, stitch binding, or spiral binding pages for more information.

Perfect Bound Printing

In order to create optimum perfect binding publications, each project requires a minimum of 40 sides. Please note that when entering the amount of sides for each document each page consists of 2 sides. Pixartprinting provides perfect binding for three publications sizes: 21cm x 29.7cm (A4), 14.8cm x 21cm (A5) and 21cm x 14.8cm (A5 horizontal). Alternatively, you can also choose your own dimensions.

The Perfect Paper for your Perfect Bound Book

There is a variety of paper types to choose from. Our standard paper options include Classic Demimatt – Matt Coated and Classic Gloss – Gloss Coated paper, whilst for a more luxurious appearance you can choose from the following: Extraprint – Brilliant White Smooth Uncoated; Rembrandt Stipple Textured Uncoated; Underwood – Woodstock Birch. Recycled paper can also be used for an environmentally friendly perfect bound printing project with character.

There are additional paper types available for the cover page. Really make an impact with the Pearl Paper, the Turner – Orange Peel Texture or the Ice White – Brilliant White Uncoated Linen Finish paper. For each paper type the weight is indicated on the online form, and in some cases, you can select from a number of possible weights.

Really good quality print.
This is the second time I ordered from them. And both times they delayed my delivery in spite of me having paid for quicker delivery. Not great if you're working on a deadline, which I was since this was my final college project submission.

The inner covers on all the copies which was a dark red colour, all had tiny white spots on them.
