What is Perfect binding?
Perfect bound booklets are several folded sheets of paper that are bound and glued together.
A heavier cover is typically recommended in order for the glue to be efficient and hold the inside pages.
Although a multiple of 2 total page count is theorically possible, we prefer having a multiple of 4 to keep the best quality binding.
Perfect bind is one of the most expensive binding method but also gives the best looking booklets/books!
Moreover, when you have a higher page count it is necessary to use Perfect binding.
If you would rather use staples you can check-out Saddle-stitch or Square Bind. Wire Coil is also available
The uses of Perfect binding
Perfect bind is mostly used for higher page count booklets, catalogs, magazines...
Because the cover pages are usually thicker, this type of binding gives a better feel to the end-product and a better quality.
The booklets, when closed, will lay flat on a surface and will not have the "bend" you may see in higher page count saddle-stitch booklets.
