Order Your Printed Perfect Bound Books

At CMYK Colour Online we specialize in perfect bound book printing (all books are printed in Australia).

If you’re a self-published author, cookbook writer or looking to print annual reports, sales catalogues, product guides, visitor guides, promotional booklets, year books, children’s books, technical booklets, or any other type of book, perfect binding is the solution for you.

Perfect binding is ideal for short run and on demand printing (starting with quantities as small as 5 books) and is available in a wide range of paper stocks for the cover and inside/text pages.

Perfect binding is a type of binding in which the pages are glued together along the spine. When binding your books, we use super strong PUR (Polyurethane Reactive) glue. This produces printed books which are significantly stronger and have much improved lay-flat capabilities when compared to regular EVA glues.

The many soft cover books that you see on the shelves at bookstores are often good examples of perfect bound books
