Perfect Bound Book Printing for Magazines, Catalogues and Books
The Perfect Bound Book
An alternative to stitch binding is perfect binding, a cheap and cost-effective way to create professional looking publications including books and catalogues. Perfect binding consists of milling the binding edge of your interior pages and then affixing this to your chosen cover.
Perfect bound printing is a popular choice for books and catalogues as it has a number of benefits. It makes sense financially as it’s cheaper than hardcover yet still looks sleek and gives you the high-quality aesthetic you’re seeking. The added bonus is that the name of the publication can be printed on the spine, making it ideal for books or catalogues.
Pixartprinting provides a wide range of customisation options enabling clients to create perfect bound book printing jobs, each with their own paper type and cover designs. If you require other forms of binding please visit our stapled, stitch binding, or spiral binding pages for more information.
Perfect Bound Printing
In order to create optimum perfect binding publications, each project requires a minimum of 40 sides. Please note that when entering the amount of sides for each document each page consists of 2 sides. Pixartprinting provides perfect binding for three publications sizes: 21cm x 29.7cm (A4), 14.8cm x 21cm (A5) and 21cm x 14.8cm (A5 horizontal). Alternatively, you can also choose your own dimensions.

Our standard paper options include Classic Demimatt – Matt Coated and Classic Gloss – Gloss Coated paper, whilst for a more luxurious appearance you can choose from the following: Extraprint – Brilliant White Smooth Uncoated; Rembrandt Stipple Textured Uncoated; Underwood – Woodstock Birch.

There are additional paper types available for the cover page.
