Perfect Bound Booklets

With a glued spine and professional finish perfect bound booklets are ideal for when you're out to impress.


    You may not be familiar with the term, but you will be with the finished look. Perfect binding is a widely used soft cover book binding method where the pages and cover are glued together at the spine. The remaining sides are trimmed to give them clean, 'perfect' edges.

    Ideal for thicker brochures and magazines, perfect binding is also a popular binding method for annual and corporate reports, as it can add to the perception of authority, quality and professionalism.

    We recommend adding a cover lamination for increased durability and a premium finish.
    Add a Gloss lamination for a vibrant look, Matt lamination for an elegant finish or, Soft-Touch for a tactile velvet feel that readers won't be able to resist.
