There are many reasons that businesses and organizations alike use the method of perfect binding for a variety of printing projects. The pages of documents like books, reports, manuals, catalogues and even product brochures, are glued together at the spine using perfect binding equipment to create a flat, strong, and flexible edge. This method produces a professional appearance, is flexible enough for short run projects, and is an affordable option for companies and print shops. The square spinal edge produced by a perfect bind, allows the books or documents to stack well and provide more real estate for printing along the bind (something the spiral or saddle stitch bind can’t offer), all while maximizing durability for cost.
Here are just a few main benefits to consider when choosing perfect binding, and equipment.
Perfect binding equipment is designed to be completely versatile, adapting to the needs of your project. Businesses choose perfect binding for large catalogues, studies or reports, corporate collateral and sales materials, and educational institutions produce training guides, course materials, and hard or soft cover books using the perfect binding process.
Choose the perfect binding equipment that fits your project needs, from speed to quality, dimensions and page count. Review the common or required formats of your projects and take that into consideration when choosing your equipment - minimum and maximum page count, trim size, and dimensions will likely play a huge role in your decision making.
One of the main reasons to consider a perfect binding solution, is affordability. The process of perfect binding takes less time, and is less resource intensive than other solutions, making it more cost effective overall. Particularly for on-demand models, or short run projects; if you aren’t producing books or high page count documents in mass volumes, perfect binding machines are fast, easy to use, and decrease your price per final product.
The perfect bind process is designed to produce resilient products - products that are built to last and withstand frequent use. For companies or organizations that want their printed documents and projects to withstand the rigours of everyday (or recurrent) handling, perfect binding fits the bill. When choosing perfect binding equipment, you should consider whether the machine can produce both hardcover and soft cover (depending on your requirements). Additionally, page count and spine thickness are factors in durability. Because of the gluing process, perfect binding creates a highly durable spine for documents of any shape and size, however, the thicker the spine, the more long-lasting the document will be.
Form and functionality
For many businesses, quality and professionalism is the number one goal for their printed documents. Perfect binding creates highly professional and appealing looking printed documents and presentation materials that help companies stand out from their competitors. Another benefit of the perfect bind, is “stackability”. The process allows books and printed materials to lie flat, taking up less space, and making them more flexible for storing and presenting. This also comes in handy when you are shipping products, or displaying them. A lie flat solution makes it easier (and cheaper!) to distribute and display your products.
