Why choose perfect bound brochures and booklets?
When it comes to choosing binding, perfect bound brochures are a popular choice for many businesses. They provide a much more professional, high-end look than their counterparts.
Depending on the size, brochures and booklets are often bound with a saddle-stitch or wiro bound owing to the size and content. However, there are many good reasons why businesses might lean towards perfect bound brochures or booklets between 40-700 pages long.
Let’s take a look:
Perfect binding – what is it?
To first understand the pros of perfect bound brochures, we must understand the term perfect binding. In short, all the pages in the document are stacked together, and a strong glue is applied to the edge before covering with the sleeve or cover. The pages, glue and cover are bonded together along the spine to create one perfect book or booklet. And the pages along the three open sides are trimmed to form a perfectly shaped publication.
The strength and smooth finish of a perfect bound brochure makes it still the most popular and prestigious form of printing. Because of its strong nature, it is more commonly used on larger, thicker magazines, catalogues, brochures and books.
What are the advantages of using perfect binding?
There are a number of advantages to perfect bound brochures.
- First and foremost, it looks professional. Perfect bound brochures, books and documents have a smooth clean finish which truly catches the eye of the beholder.
- The perfect bound spine makes for easier stacking and standing than saddle-stitch and wiro-bound documents, allowing them to sit neatly on top of each other, or stand side-by-side; making for a superior and more presentable display of the publication.
- You can print on the spine, so the title of the publication is visible when the document is stacked or shelved; making it easier to find.
- Its more cost-effect than you think! Simply contact DL Graphics for a quotation on any of your print requirements, and we’ll be happy to work with you on a price than meets your requirements.
