In the world of printing, perfect bindery is the process of binding a book with a layer of adhesive that’s meant to hold both the pages and cover together. If you want to pursue custom book binding to make a perfect bound book, the perfect binding method works the best with print manuals, proposals, presentations and catalogs. The great thing about custom book bindery, or perfect bindery, is that it gives your print booklet a polished appearance.

Not only do perfect bound books look professional, but they also create visual appeal when you use our printing. Plus, if you’re trying to find economical ways to utilize custom book bindery, perfect bound print books are cheaper to make and stack than hardcover books. Another reason why perfect bindery is an excellent choice is that short run print jobs can be used with it.

The perfect bindery method is created when the cover and inside pages are glued together at the spine. Depending on what type of custom book binding you get, size is going to be the main difference once the printing is finished. If you choose long edge bindery, the book will be designed portrait-style and if you choose short edge then your book will be designed landscape-style.
