Description

Soft Back Bound Books

Turn your documents into a beautiful Softback or Paperback Book. At More Than Just Print, we produce Bookstore quality softback bound books, also known as paperback books.  We are one of the top online book printers, producing 1000’s of books every week.

We use the latest Digital Printing Canon machines. This means that we can produce one-off books. For larger runs, we use the Latest Litho Print Presses.

Our Softback Bound and paperback books are available in either A4 or A5 size. We also can produce bespoke sizes on request. We offer both portrait and landscape book printing too.

To finish off your book choose either Gloss, Matt or Soft Touch finishing options. These options will make your paperback book look top quality.

Printing of Softback Bound Books & Paperback Books

All of our paperback books are printed using the latest in digital technology. You will have vibrant colours throughout if opting for colour books and crisp text. Colour covers come as standard. If you can supply a high-resolution cover then your books will be photo quality. We also produce black and white printing options. If you choose the black and white option, your cover will still be printed in full colour.

To create your paperback books,  all 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 Softback bound bookbinding. This type of binding is called Perfect Binding.

What is Perfect Binding?

Perfect Binding is when the inside pages of the books are glued into the spine with thermal glue. Thermal glue is strong, but it’s also flexible. The pages are not sewn into the book. The inside pages are cut down to size and glued together. The cover is then placed onto the edge of the books securing the books in place.

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 about our Softback bound Books.

Is Your Paper Stock Environmentally Friendly?

Yes, our paper is all FSC approved. Meaning that all of the paper stock that we use has been harvested in a responsible manner.  FSC stands for the Forest Stewardship Council. This an independent non-governmental organisation that promotes the responsible management of the world’s forests. You can learn more about FSC here. You can also find out more about paper and the environment on the Two Sides website here.
