We love printing books! Bookbinding helps create a finished product that is long-lasting, easy to use and beautiful. The type of book binding your book requires depends on how you intend to use the book, but also on the number of pages you have, and the budget and time you can afford. But whether you need help binding a business document, a thesis, a book, a family history book, a wedding album, or old journals and magazines, we do it all! Our binding service caters for your budget and requirements with a range of book binding options.
The most common question we get for our bookbinding is what kind of bookbinding should I use? It really comes down to 3 things: the minimum time you have for your books to be printed, the number of pages, and the budget.
Also called 'twin loop binding', wire binding uses a metal loop to bind the spine of the "book". Wire binding is a popular and affordable choice for binding low volumes of books, including educational resources or company-wide documents. Our wire binding is neat and accurate and will not unravel easily or punch through the text. If you need your book to lie flat or to be opened regularly for reference, we would recommend wire binding.
This is the best option for your binding needs if you are working with booklets, newsletters, pamphlets, comic books, magazines or catalogues. Involving neither saddles nor stitching it can be a bit confusing but this is the industry jargon for a collection of pages folded in half and secured with 2 staples.
There are 2 types of saddle stitched books that we produce. The first is called ‘self cover’ which basically means that the paper stock used is the same thickness (or GSM) throughout and does not have a heavier cover. The second choice is to have a thicker cover on the booklet. We recommend a 150gsm inner and a 300 gsm cover for best results.
Perfect binding is used on soft cover books (paperback) and normally the cover is made from heavier (thicker) paper than the internal pages. When binding large books the printing is done in sections, glued together at the spine creating a square spine. If you would like your booklet to have a spine then perfect binding is for you. Usually a perfect bound book has a 100gsm to 150gsm internal and a thicker 250gsm to 300gsm cover. We can also celloglaze the cover in a matte or gloss finish to give the perfect bound booklet durability and a more professional finish.
Various finishes can be applied to thick covers of both digital and offset booklets and documents. These include:
Prices and turnaround times for book cover finishing option available on application.
Hard Cover books are our premium binding option for any booklet. Also referred to as Case binding. Of all our booklet options, this style does come with the longest production time and a higher cost, compared to perfect bound, staple bound or wire bound. Faster book options are available, this style is perfect for the no-rush project which needs the highest quality result.
There are multiple options for internal paper stock, and style of cover available for hard cover booklets. There is no minimum order quantity, however it is recommended to order at least 5 for cost effectiveness.
We are happy to help guide through the process of creating a book like this.

Hard cover books require precise measurements and careful consulting to select the perfect book. Hardcover books have cover papers or Buckram that is wrapped (glued) around grey board (approx. 2mm thick) to create your hardcover book. Hard cover books are printed the same way as perfect bound books (in sections with a square spine) however the book is covered with a hard cover. We create hardcover books that are as attractive as they are durable. We use only the highest quality adhesive and binding materials to make sure that once a book is bound it remains that and does not fall apart at the first hint of moisture, heat or pressure.
