Step 1: Choose a Binding Style

Book size and binding play key roles in the appearance and performance of your book. Selecting the best type of binding requires taking into account several factors, such as the function of your book, the number of pages, the desired quality of presentation, and your printing budget. To meet your needs, we offer paperback books in four binding styles (perfect, plastic coil, plastic comb, and saddle-stitched binding). When only the best will do, choose full-color hardcover books to bring all of your photos and illustrations to life.
