Well, hang on; is perfect binding best for a textbook? Probably not. Read on...

Brochures, catalogues, magazines, books, each of these products require going through an essential stage: binding.

This technique consists of assembling all of the pages in an enveloping cover. The pages are cut on the side of the edge which gives a flat back. This type of shaping offers a professional and prestigious rendering, ideal for brochures, magazines, catalogues. The perfect bound offers different possibilities: standard, PUR glue.

Standard perfect bound

This technique consists in gluing the pages inside, it allows to have a larger pagination than a stapled binding. The classic glued square back uses a hot glue also called “hotmelt”.

PUR perfect bound

The technique is identical to that of the standard perfect bound, however the glue is different (polyurethane), which allows to glue thicker documents. It offers a high-end rendering, flexible and very resistant.
