Perfect Bound Books, Spiral Notebooks

 

Instruction Manuals, Workbooks, Photo Pages in CD DVD Packaging

If you have a large number of book pages (28pp or more), consider doing a perfect bound book to give the booklet a finished spine.

  • So what exactly is perfect binding on a book?

    Perfect binding is a type of bookbinding that is especially suited for larger books, or for books that need a more finished, square-backed, look. Paperback novels and fancier magazines such as National Geographic are examples perfect binding.

    At Megalodon, you can get perfect bound books in just about any height or width. We've produced books as little as this:

    perfect bound flipbook note book with vellum pages
    Perfect bound spine on flip book notebook in dvd pacakging
    2" animation flip book, with fiberboard covers and Vellum pages. Pixar story artist, director, animator and independent filmmaker

    …and as big as this:

    Inside - 4C Printing

    You do need to have a certain thickness to make the spine work though, and that magic number is about 28 pages.
     
  • How are perfect bound books made?

    The pages of the book are arranged into groups of (usually) 16 panels each, called signatures. These are assembled into a block, then the spines of the signatures in the block are cut or ground off. The cut inner edges are then glued to form a flat spine. The covers (usually a heavier paper) are then glued around the page block.

  • CD and DVD Books, Hardcover, Chipboard Core 4C Wrap and Inner Page Booklets

    Perfect bound books find their way into several types of packaging. One popular option is to glue the booklet into a standard disc package, usually a traypak, to create a CD Book (or DVD book!) Notice that the books in these packages are a little wider and taller than traditional disc packaging.
