Finishing and binding

Discover our bespoke finishing and binding services that ensure we cover all options

Printondemand-worldwide produces in excess of 25,000 perfect-bound books a week, to a high standard using the very latest in strong glue technology via our binding line.

Take your standard paperback book, with mono printed internal pages. First the digitally printed full-colour cover is laminated on our automatic laminators, whilst the printed loose-leaf sheets leave the mono digital presses collated.

In the bindery the text block is gathered and milled along the spine edge to create a rough surface. The glue is applied, and the cover is creased before being wrapped around and adhered to the text blocks.

Once we trim your product to its final size, your book is ready for dispatch, but not before we shrink wrap it upon request.

Our investment in new technology means that we only offer our customers the best choice of finishing and binding for their books

We installed a Muller Martini Vareo perfect binder and added an InfiniTrim variable three-knife-trimmer, to become the first UK business to install the setup into our printing and manufacturing processes.
