Are you looking to start 2019 by finally publishing a book? It could be a goal on your list or part of your resolution. Achieving this accomplishment is much easier than you think – as long as you partner with a publisher that you can trust. If you aren’t familiar with the different styles of bookbinding, then it’s time to learn more about the advantages of perfect binding.
Whenever you enter a bookstore or a library, you might scan the shelf of new releases. These books are going to be a mixture of hardcover items and softcover – or paperback – books. Since the process of perfect binding is less time and resource intensive, it results in products that are cheaper to create and to purchase
Perfect bound books also tend to be lighter than their hardcover cousins. This means that they are easier to ship. The easier it is to distribute your book, the more copies you can move and presumably sell as well.
What project are you looking to complete? Perfect binding is hugely versatile, as you can use it for portfolios, graphics novels, and nonfiction books. It’s also useful for standard novels as well.
You might think that because it is less expensive, perfect binding produces imperfect or lower-quality results. In fact, perfect binding can give you something presentable just as easily as hardcover binding can.
More Durable Spine
Another option you can consider during the perfect binding process is how thick you want to the spine to be. The thicker the spine, the more resilient it is. Plus, depending on the thickness, you can stamp the title of the book and the name of the author onto the spine as well.
One last consideration you will want to think about is how long your manuscript is. The format of the book determines its trim size, and these factors are influenced by how high the page count is and how thick the spine will need to be.
