Hardback BooksOur hardback books are printed using the latest printing technology and finished in-house by our highly skilled print finishing department. All of our hardback books are hand-made to ensure only the finest quality. Using our Digital print technology, Printroom Group offers low quantity print runs as low as one copy upwards. We can print your books in either full colour or black and white. We offer A5 books and A4 books. We can also provide 210mm x 210mm books and royale size books on request. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a bespoke quote or use our online chat to talk to one of our supervisors. The hardback covers are all laminated as standard to give a professional finish. Lamination is available in either gloss, matt or soft touch. If you want to see these finished first-hand then request a sample pack from us.
Our Binding MethodAll of the printed pages are secured to the spine using a high tack binding glue. This is a strong and flexible binding method that is industry-standard in hardback bookbinding. All covers are printed in full colour and the inside covers are white as standard, however, we can use printed sheets if you would rather have this option. Standard practice is a double-sided printed sheet, however, if you do require a single-sided sheet this can be produced. Just get in contact with us to find out more.

For bespoke stocks, finishes, or sizes, please email email@example.com or speak to one of our supervisors using the online chat. You can request a PDF proof or a hard copy proof of your hardback book to make sure everything is as it should be before we proceed with a full print run. Ribbon bookmarks are also available for this product, as well as matt, gloss, or soft-touch laminated covers. To see our finishes you can request a sample pack and we will send this out to you.
