Sometimes your information requires a book format, as opposed to a brochure or booklet. Perhaps you wish to self-publish your own written work, give a work place manual a more permanent feel, or create a professional copy of a thesis.perfect-bound-book-printing


Printsmarter can meet all your requirements with our perfect bound books. (This is where the pages are specially glued in place.)


The covers for our books are designed to create an impact on any shelf. We print in full colour, on super-thick, 250gsm artboard with an additional gloss lamination applied.


The internal pages are printed in black ink on 80gsm bond paper. We have found that this paper creates a perfect balance between quality and thickness; not being so thick as to make your book unwieldy.


To ensure our customers’ ultimate satisfaction, our prices include a printed proof for your verification. Our turn-around is extremely efficient, taking just 5-7days from approval to delivery.
