If you are looking for a great looking brochure or booklet – perfect bound printing is a great option. Perfect binding can be used on documents from 40 pages upwards and on runs from 1 to 500. It’s hardly surprising it has become such a popular choice.
At Kenads Printers, we offer a range of perfect bound choices: A4, A5, A6 and all sizes in between – landscape and portrait. Perfect binding provides a professional finish for manuals, prospectuses, short stories, employee handbooks, account reports and product brochures.
Our customers include manufacturers and publishers, independent schools, universities and colleges, businesses and charitable organisations.
If you don’t know much about perfect bound printing, it is a process usually recommended when the document is too thick to be saddle-stitched or stapled. We use this binding method for magazines, reports and thicker booklets as it binds the pages together with adhesive along the spine for a smooth and smart finish. The adhesive we use is Planamelt R which is flexible and not brittle and offers a good tolerance with high and low temperatures. This means that when the brochures are opened out, the spine will not crack and the pages will stay in place.
We have been printers for over 38 years and offer the best advice to companies and agencies wanting a quality product at a good price. We have an excellent range of paper and finishes, we provide matt and gloss lamination as well as foiling and embossing at our printers in Worthing, West Sussex.
Covers can be silk, gloss coated or even uncoated with or without lamination and ideally printed on 250 gsm stock. For a high-quality finish, we would always recommend laminating a cover, especially if it has a high ink coverage.
Inner text pages can be uncoated, silk or gloss and our recommended paper weights range from 100 gsm to 170 gsm for inner pages.
When designing your perfect bound brochure or report, we will be happy to advise you on the safe area to leave along the spine edge to make sure the crease comes in the right place. We are happy to work with your designers, or we can quote to design and print your brochure.
If you are a publisher, manufacturer or, an organisation wanting a short run of annual reports, for example, please get in touch for a quote, or we can meet to discuss your requirements.
