Perfect binding with a special finish

Perfect bound printing is a popular choice for books, magazines and brochures as it is a durable binding method that looks smart yet remains affordable. For those occasions when you really want to impress and get your brand noticed, Pixartprinting offers a choice of special finishes that can be applied to your perfect bound book for an extra-sleek appearance and feel. Not only that, you can also customise your project in other ways by choosing your preferred size, paper, paper weight, lamination and number of pages.

Perfect bound printing with a special finish is the ideal way to create sophisticated magazines and catalogues for the luxury sector. From the beauty industry to interior decoration, or an exhibition catalogue to a company profile for a trade fair, it achieves a striking effect to present your company in the best light.

Perfect binding customisation options

For perfect bound books that meet all your requirements and reflect your brand, there are a series of customisation options available:

  • A choice of four closed sizes: A4, A5, 16.5x24 cm and 21x21 cm.
  • Orientation: you can decide whether to set up your catalogue in portrait or landscape.
  • Paper: from classic paper to deluxe, there are six different paper types for all kinds of catalogues to reflect your brand's personality.
  • Weight: each paper has different weights that provide a different perception of the product so you can choose the most suitable option for your business.
  • Cover paper: select Classic Demimatt - Matt Coated or Classic Gloss - Gloss Coated, both weighing 300 gsm and both laminated.
  • Lamination: the cover can also be laminated with the addition of a matt or soft-touch film. Both provide protection and durability; the soft-touch lamination gives the product a velvety feel.
  • Finish: the finish allows you to highlight certain graphics or specific features. Choose from 3D varnish (an extra-thick transparent film that gives it an embossed feel), or gold or silver coating to enhance certain areas of your artwork.

Good job done where I had a dps. Matched up well, thanks. And great help with the layout and sizing and pre-print help. All good, very efficient despite no apparent human intervention - not needed. All good.
The need to fold the front cover back straight away - first job. Easy to do, but some guidance would have been useful, like the hint to leave the books for a day before opening them.
