A New Year and a new flagship perfect binding service.

We’re welcoming 2022 with new and exciting technology.

With over 25 years in the business, we understand that printing is so much more than just ink on paper – it’s the interaction between customers and businesses. Over the years, we’ve developed a strong reputation as a leading force within the printing industry – a reputation that we’ll continue to build upon for many years to come.

With this in mind, we are delighted to have commissioned the latest addition to our in-house operation, the Horizon BQ-480 – a true game-changer in terms of quality and efficiency in bookbinding.

What is perfect binding?

Perfect binding is a method used to finish books or documents by gluing the pages in blocks and trimming to flush, rather than using staples and folded pages.

Each page is glued together and secured at the spine using a strong, flexible thermal glue. The cover is then drawn on or wrapped around the glued pages and the edges are trimmed flush, creating flawlessly straight edges.

To see an example of perfect binding, simply take a softcover book from your shelf, or pick up a high-quality magazine. You’ll notice the spine is durable and stable, the pages are neat and the overall look is stylish and professional.

What are the benefits of perfect binding?

High-quality professional finish

Perfect binding can be used on a wide range of documents. It gives you a printable spine area and allows for individual leaves or pages to be glued or “tipped” into a document, unlike folded and stapled (or saddle-stitched) brochures which need to be in page multiples of 4.

Alternating leaves or pages can be on different paper stocks, giving more create opportunities for designers.

Your printed material speaks volumes about your company’s image, brand, and values. As such, it should be as appealing as the image of the company you want to represent. Moreover, spine adhesives are very strong and overall durability is excellent, giving you an even higher-quality finish.
