Perfect binding utilizes an adhesive that is applied to the spine of the gathered pages to make sure they are perfectly bound when dry. The most common applications of perfect bound include telephone books, catalogs, paperback books and magazines.
Although perfect bound documents have certain limitations to how much they can lay flat but they add a particular style and look to the booklet that cannot be matched by spiral or comb binding. The soft cover style perfect bound booklet not only allows you to print on the spine but also makes it possible to add images, text or graphics on the front and back cover to give it a professional yet creative look.
Available for different paper sizes and types in a bleed or no bleed format, the cover of perfect bound is usually printed on a card stock sheet. While there is no minimum count, you can start with 4 sheets and go up to 1.25" thick for perfect bound.
