Perfect Bound (Paperback)

Perfect binding is a simple and cost-effective method of binding your book. The folded section or single pages of the book are glued at the spine and the cover is wrapped around the book and trimmed to create a finished book. We can offer a wide range of bespoke books and a huge choice of paper stocks, including FSC recycled options.

Case Bound (Hardback)

Case bound books are a durable option. Printed sections are usually folded and sewn so they open flat. The text is trimmed first, then an adhesive is applied to the rough edge to attach the text to the hard cover. These are an excellent option for younger children’s books, reference books and religious texts. There are so many finishing options to make your book special and to suit your content.
