What do I need to take into account for perfect binding?

  • All areas that will have glue applied to it MUST be knocked out to allow proper chemistry between the glue and the paper. Glue is applied to the spine as well as the side of the book block.
  • All inside signatures must have the same head, foot and face trims to register to each other in the book.
  • The sheet size of the cover must be larger than the inside signatures. This creates a “glue trap” which enables us to glue the entire length of the spine.
