What are we talking about?
The perfect binding refers to a booklet whose inside pages are glued together and give a straight and flat binding.
This type of binding gives the printed material a more sophisticated visual aspect than for a simple stitched booklet. The square back booklet is a top quality product that may improve your brand image.
There are many possibilities in order to customize the finish of your communication medium. The most common are matte, glossy, soft touch lamination of the cover, or the application of a protective varnish.
The perfect binding is mainly used for booklet or catalog with great number of pages and/or thicker inside pages. It is used when the stitch binding cannot meet the needs, either technically (due to the thickness of the product) or qualitatively (due to the elegance of the product). It is a more expensive method of binding, but also gives the best results in terms of visual and tactile aspects. So, if you are looking for a more upscale booklet, select the perfect binding!
Accuracy: we use the PUR process, which gives the document a longer lifespan and often prevents the pages from becoming damaged during handling.
The most common application examples are similar to the stitch binding, the main difference being the number of pages: large booklets, paperbacks, educational books, voluminous instruction manuals, results reports, school textbooks, product catalogs, high-pagination periodical magazines, trade fair communication media, newspapers, booklets, notebooks, etc.
In order for the glue to adhere well and hold the inside pages, we recommend choosing a thicker cover paper (minimum 65lb cover paper) than the one selected for the inside. It is therefore necessary to use a heavier weight. Use the perfect back finish of your brochure if you want to take your brochure upscale and stand out. We advise you to systematically apply matt or glossy or soft touch lamination on the front cover.
