Choosing Between High-speed Offset And Digital Printing

High-quality offset printing maximizes cost-savings while preserving high quality for larger print runs due to its efficiency and superior color accuracy. The offset process ensures that each page reflects consistent quality, crucial for professional, academic and industrial books. 

However, if you’re producing a smaller run of books, require variable data within your books or just need flexibility with your print runs, digital printing might be the best bet. Digital printing allows for more fine-tuned customization making it cost-effective for short runs, making it ideal for self-publishers or niche topics as well.

Pre-publishing Services We Offer

Available Types Of Book Binding Styles

Perfect Binding

Perfect binding or soft cover binding is great for lighter weight, more flexible book construction. In this method, groups of pages, called signatures, are held together by a flexible adhesive.

Saddle Stitch Binding

This binding method has the pages stapled to the spine. It’s a great cost-effective method for smaller, stackable books like pamphlets, magazines and handouts. 

Coil Binding (aka Spiral Coil Binding)

In this style, pages of the book are perforated on the edge allowing for a metal or plastic wire to be spiraled through the holes. Commonly used for reports, proposals and manuals. Documents bound with coil have the ability to lay flat and can rotate 360 degrees.

Case Binding (aka Hardcover Bookbinding)

The sturdiest of book bindings. Case binding adds a classic hardcover to encapsulate your work. Perfect for a publication that’s designed to last.
