Perfect-bound (paperback) books & booklets

Neat, ‘published’ appearance: high-impact, readable spine.

This option gives a document a more ‘published’ look. Perfect bound, “paperback book” manuals have a printed spine, making the book easily identifiable on a bookshelf.

Perfect bound books are suitable for situations where there is a lot of course material which needs to be handed out all at once, i.e. not in small modules.

Perfect-bound manuals are less suitable for courses where you may wish to hand out modules stage by stage. Ring-bound manuals are more suitable for this. Also, they may not suit training situations where the material needs to be referred to during the event as they will not remain flat and open as do wire-bound books.

Please let us know if you would like to receive a bound hard-copy proof of your manual before the final print run.
