Softback Books – Planamet R and PUR Binding

Books! We love them.

We offer soft cover paperback binding using both true PUR binding or Planamelt R glue for books as thin as 1mm and as thick as 50mm. Minimum book size 120x120mm, maximum 420x360mm. Both PUR and Planamelt R are extremely strong, and it is possible to bind pages on all sorts of mediums, not just paper and card. For nearly all applications, either glue will work just as well but, in a few instances, one may be slightly preferable. We can advise.

Both options are equally strong in most cases but one or other can be better in a few circumstances. We will make sure the best option is used to make your book strong and long lasting.

Our binders can produce a glued spine on a book as thin as 1mm and will strongly hold together a catalogue 50mm thick! Alongside wire binding and square back stapling, our PUR bound and Perfect bound spine completes a trio of options for in-house finishing at Gowise which should cover every eventuality!

Min Book size 120 x 120mm (min cover size 120 x 240mm)

Max Book size 420 x 360mm (max cover size 425 x 780mm)

Min thickness 1mm

Max thickness 50mm

NB PUR Binding has a minimum 48 hour drying period.
