Perfect Binding Machines

Many consider perfect binding to be the highest quality form of document finishing. These systems apply hot glue to the spine of a stacked document for adherence to a wrap-around cover. The result is a high quality product that continues the long tradition of bookmaking craftsmen throughout the centuries. After the book is bound most organizations will trim the exposed edges (often referred to face trimming) with a guillotine cutter. The finished book looks much like a paperback that you would buy at a bookstore. Or, it is possible to bind these contents into a hardcover case for a hard bound finished book. If you are looking for a lower budget alternative you might consider using a Thermal Binding Machine with glue strips or with Coverbind Print on Demand Covers.
