Perfect binding, 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 case bound or hardcover.
At 48 Hour Books, our operations include the latest top-of-the-line binders to ensure a strong, bookstore-quality product. Our experienced bindery team works hard to make sure everything is up to our standards, performing quality checks throughout the book binding process.
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.
Perfect bound books (otherwise known as soft cover books) are held together with adhesive within a paper cover. 48 Hour Books uses PUR adhesive, the strongest adhesive available, so your book will be flexible and easy to transport but also durable.
Perfect bound books can range from a minimum of 16 pages to a maximum of 1,025 pages.
48 Hour Books offers options for book binding. We also have case bound (hardcover), spiral bound (plastic coil bound) and saddle stitch options.
