Softcover with a Wide Selection - Affordable Even for Large Quantities

Perfect binding or adhesive binding is a simple and cost-effective softcover option. The wide selection of cardboard covers, varying in structure and colour, allows a very individual design. The content is printed and usually glued into a cardboard envelope used as cover. The finished book is then trimmed on three sides, respecting the document's margin. The adhesive used is well cured and therefore very durable even if used often. We offer discount for large quantity orders for this softcover binding option. The more you order, the higher the discount! 


The Cover - Paperback or a Protective Foil Cover and Adhesive Spine Tape

Usually this method uses a cardboard envelope as cover - just like a classic paperback seen in bookstores. This way you are free to design your personal cover. If you would like to use different materials for the front and back cover (e.g. a protective foil as front cover and blue cardboard on the back), an adhesive spine tape will cover the spine to make it appear like the book was made in one piece.


Printed Covers - Your Individually Designed Book Cover

A printed cover is best used in combination with a lightly coloured and printable cardboard. 

Design you own cover: Advice on how to design a cover


New: You can design your cover online - all sizes will be automatically calculated with respect to the amount of pages. Select "Printed cover", then "Online cover designer" and finally click on "Design online". 


Alternatively you can choose to cover your title page with a protective foil cover. Please do not hesitate to add a cover page to your order, which can be printed onto the cover cardboard or inserted as cover page beneath a protective foil cover.   

Surface Finish for High Gloss Brochures

Would you like an especially elegant finish for your brochure? As a surface finish we can offer a high gloss lamination for the cover cardboard.


Cost-Effective Binding Option for Universities and Businesses  

The low-cost perfect binding softcover is ideal for binding seminar papers and theses, like your bachelor, master or doctoral thesis etc. Often this perfect binding option is chosen for sample copies of doctoral theses. But this low cost method with a cardboard envelope and printed cover is also perfect for textbooks. Of course our online printing and binding service is happy to print and bind your job application documents. The design and cover of an application is always an indicator for an applicant's personality and creativity. Use our large selection of cardboards for your individual design. Your job application bound as a softcover will leave a good impression. Perfect binding softcover is also the best choice for binding manuals of any kind - e.g. manuals for your machines, camera, computer etc.
