Most Popular Paper

paper thickness

Gloss paper has a shiny and lustrous smooth coated gloss finish. Excellent for making full color printing appear more vibrant.

Matte paper is a dull coated sheet that exhibits low gloss finish. Paper has minimal glare, making it easier to read text.

Uncoated paper is easy to write on and should be used in projects such as a workbook or coloring book.

Softcover vs Self-Cover

Perfect Bound Book printing
Perfect binding booklet printing is single sheets (text weight) paper printed on both sides and collated in page number order, one on top of the other, and gathered into a book block. The spine edge is ground off. The softcover (a thicker cardstock) is placed over and around the book block (interior pages) and attached by the application of a strong yet flexible PUR glue along the binding edge, creating a professional looking square spine that can be printed on.

Softcover

Spiral Bound Book printing
Spiral Binding is more durable than wire-o binding but does not have the professional look of a wire-o bound book. A spiral bound book uses a durable plastic coil which makes it an ideal option for spiral book binding that needs to lie flat and can fold or wrap back around themselves (360 degree) and are continually being referred to. The plastic coil allows for frequent use that not damage the book binding coil. Spiral bound book printing is great for instruction and repair manuals, cookbooks, directories, handbooks, guides, and other reference materials. Spiral binding is excellent for wall calendars and planners can hang flat against the wall.

Softcover

Wire-O Bound Book printing
Wire-O binding is for a more formal use and offers a more professional look than a spiral bound book. A wire-o bound book uses a metal wire. Unlike a perfect bound or saddle-stitched book, the open wire-o bound book will lie flat (180 degrees) for easy reference or they can fold or wrap back around themselves (360 degree) making it easier to handle and lays flat for easy reading while taking up minimal room on a desk or table.
Wire-o binding is an excellent style of binding commonly used for businesses to create professional-looking lay flat documents such as business reports, documents, calendars and other book types. Wire-o binding calendars are one of our most popular products. The pages flip easily and hang flat against the wall. Wall calendars are great for non-profit fundraising programs, promoting business and photography.

Excellent printing quality. Nice, and also very fast, customer service. My only advice using this printing method for a book: 1. Double check to make sure you get your physical proof copy. For some reason, I didn't get one. That's okay considering this was a 'proof' printing, but I would have made some changes. 2. This is not a complaint, only caution for self-publishers: The dimensions offered were not exactly as I needed. I'm not sure why they don't allow a narrower size. The printed book ends up having the dimensions of a church hymnal, as I can't input a narrower width. In the past year or so, it seemed this company did offer a custom size for width. So just double check all your parameters first. 3. I actually really love the finished product and think I can work with this company to get more of the effect I'm after. Best feature is 'Printed in USA.' Many thanks!
