Soft Cover Binding

"Perfect binding" is a term used to describe the process of binding single loose sheets into a book with a wrap-around cover. Most magazines and paperback books are made with this process.

The size can range from just a few pages to 1 3/4″ thickness. Our commercial perfect-binder cuts the spine and double-notches it, allowing deep penetration of the PUR adhesive. The covers are scored and wrapped around the book, then pinched to give the spine a square, tight finish. Lastly, the books are trimmed on three sides to create squared, neat edges.
