Perfect Bound Brochures

Perfect bound books are produced by stacking multiple printed signatures, or sections, on top of one another. As with saddle-stitched sections, we normally print 4-, 8-, 16- or 32-page sections on SRA2 sheets (640 x 450mm) which are then folded down to the correct size for the brochure being produced. The sections are collated together and the edges of the spine are then ground off (or notched). Glue is then applied to the spine and allowed to run into all the notches before the cover is drawn on and clamped around the glued area of the spine. The glue is allowed to dry over a period of time before the book is trimmed on three edges to produce a very neat finished job.

Due to the binding process perfect bound books are suitable when a large number of pages are required since the books can be produced to almost any thickness, in some cases even greater than 60mm.

The cover of perfect bound books is usually printed on a much thicker material to the inside pages, and has a spine that can be used to print the title of the publication or any other information.

PUR binding is done in exactly the same way as perfect binding except that a much stronger ashesive is used to glue the book together, resulting in a much more durable finished product.
