Perfect Binding

Perfect Binding is an inexpensive way to give your product durability with a professional looking finish. Perfect binding is the process where flat sheets or signatures are secured together solely with adhesive. The adhesive is applied directly to the spine of the book which means no stitching required.

There are two types of perfect binding processes, EVA and PUR. Print Finishing Specialties offers both options. To learn more about the differences between EVA and PUR check out the chart below.
