Your favorite magazine, that paper-back mystery novel, or the holiday catalog in your mail box are all samples of perfect binding. Rather than relying on a saddle stitch, perfect binding uses a strong adhesive to bind the pages together. It’s a durable, low to medium cost packaging solution for publications that need to be thicker than a saddle stitch can accommodate. Perfect binding, sometimes referred to as edge binding, also offers a more sophisticated, commercial looking product.
When deciding if perfect binding is the right solution for your catalog or magazine, consider the outcome you are aiming for. If your project is less than 40 pages (80 front and back), then perfect binding is not your best option. However, for any print job that exceeds this volume, perfect binding is, well, perfect.
