Perfect binding was invented in 1895 but became popular after a German publisher used the method for the introduction of paperback books in 1931. This method is now widely used for paperback books, journals, magazines, prospectuses and brochures.
What is Perfect Binding?
Perfect binding is produced by creating folded sections of your book sheets which then are collated into order. Glue is then applied at the binding edge for attaching the cover. The fully bound book is then trimmed to size for the finished and consistent product.
There are various options for perfect binding available including EVA, PUR and Notch. Each option offers a different level of strength depending on the value of your project.
