What is paperback book binding and how is it right for your print project?

Written by Lewis McCarthy

Paperback books otherwise known as perfect bound books are when the pages are held together using a strong adhesive along the spine and cover. The glue tends to be a thermal glue allowing strong, secure bind while also being flexible enough to move the pages adequately. 

The strong glue provides a long and lasting bind to give your books a long lifespan on the shelf or on your travels. This is the most common binding type found and is what makes up the majority of books in any given bookshop! 

Why Choose Paperback Binding?

  • Paperback is the common binding type used

Perfect if You’re Printing:
