How would you describe perfect binding?

Perfect binding uses a durable adhesive to bind the interior pages and cover for a clean, polished look that lays flat on desks, tables, and other flat surfaces.

Why is this bookbinding process called perfect binding?

The term “perfect” is in reference to the binding process itself, which cuts all interior pages and the book cover to the same measurements. They are again trimmed after binding together for a consistent, perfectly uniform look.

Does this process use an adhesive?

Yes, perfect binding is possible with the use of an EVA adhesive. This effective and durable glue works on many types of paper stock and cures quickly.

Can this type of binding allow for printing on the spine?

Printing on the spine of perfect bound books or booklets is absolutely possible due to the spine’s flat area and space that comes with perfect binding.

Is there a suggested number of pages when using perfecting binding?

Recommended page counts for perfect bound books and booklets is a minimum of 30 pages up to 400 pages maximum depending on chosen paper stock.
