Perfect binding is the process of creating widely popular paperbacks. This makes it ideal for your new book! However, you can use soft cover binding for any other high-end publication with a high page count. This includes magazines and business reports. When making perfect bound books, the cover is bent to create the spine. This ensures that the edges are smooth. After that, pages are glued to the spine. Using heavier paper stock for covers makes them more durable. The spine can be printed on, making it part of the design and creating an aesthetically pleasing quality product. Please consider that perfect binding does not allow books to lie flat, but it does give them an expensive look for an affordable price.
