Perfect Binding

Perfect binding – also called paperback or soft cover binding - is the most popular method for many reasons.

With perfect bound books, you have a professional-looking option that’s less costly than casebound or hardcover.

At 48 Hour Books, our operations utilize the latest top-of-the-line perfect binders to ensure a strong, bookstore-quality product. Our experienced bindery team works hard to make sure everything is up to the highest standards, performing quality checks throughout the book binding process.

PUR Adhesive

Perfect bound books are held together with adhesive within a paper cover. 48 Hour Books uses PUR (Polyurethane Reactive) adhesive, the strongest adhesive available in the industry, so your book will be flexible and easy to transport, but also durable.

Cover Options

Perfect bound books have a soft cover, available in 10-point and 12-point thickness. All perfect bound books can be printed with custom book covers, using enhancements like our Diamond 3D foil, texture or clear, spot gloss options.
