Book binding

How are paperback books bound?

Pages are glued into the soft cover book spine using the EVA binding method, a form of perfect binding. This provides a strong and durable finish, ensuring your book is fit for regular use. 

Can this product lay flat?

We do not recommend this product should you want to lay the book flat. For this feature we would recommend Wire, Comb, Velo or Hardback wire binding.
