Hardcover Book Printing

Trustpilot Ratings

Hardcover book printing, also known as hardback, hardcase, or hardbound is the most professional type of book binding. Hardcover book printing is fast, easy, and affordable and provide a durable, high quality professional look that can’t be matched. They offer an attractive printable spine. Saddle stitch, wire-o, and spiral binding cannot offer this. A hardcover book is the ideal choice for publications with higher page counts (40 pages up to 1050 pages thick), such as nonfiction books, photo albums, journals, fiction books, and more.

Hardcover Book Types

Hardcover Book Binding

Hardcover Bound Book printing
Hardcover, also known as casebound, is made from 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 hardcover (made from 98pt chip board) and spine 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 spine that can be printed on…

Our Most Popular Paper Options are

paper thickness

Uncoated paper is a smooth sheet that is available in 60#, 70#, or 80#. This paper is offered in bright white or in cream offset.

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

Silk paper is a coated paper with a silk finish and slight sheet. It’s often called "Matte" or "Satin" and can be described as "Low Gloss". It's great for text and pictures, making colors pop as well as text extremely readable.

Cover Coating:

Diamond 3D Covers come in raised metallic foil, a clear raised coating, or 3D textures. This is not just a 3D effect, it’s actual 3D printing that you can see and feel.

Standard Cover is printed on 100# Gloss Text then laminated with your choice of Silk Laminate or Hi-Gloss Laminate.

Leatherette is an acrylic-coated paper with a pronounced leather embossed finish. This cover is available in several rich, dark colors. It cannot be printed on, but it can be foil stamped.

Pearl Linen (Cloth) is a beautiful cover material with a linen weave. These are available in several bright, vibrant colors. They can be foil stamped, but cannot be printed on.

Leather is a top-of-the-line cover option which is made of 100% cowhide leather fibers. It can be foil stamped, but cannot be printed on.

What is the Difference Between Hardcover and Paperback?

Hardcover books are made of heavy paperboard covered with cloth, heavy paper, or leather whereas paperback books are made of thick paper or cardstock. Because of the materials that hardcover books are made out of, they are heavier than paperback books. Hardcover books also have a flexible, sewn spine. Paperback books are bound together with glue and have a square spine. Hardcover books are usually more expensive than paperback books.

I was a little worried about the great price and the booklet format, but I was pleasantly surprised as it turned out really nice. I really liked the online app that helped me layout the book. Most other sites gave minimal configuration and I really like how I was able to fill the whole page without having any sort of background color.

This was my first order with Printing Center and I did it because the printer I usually use messed up an order and could not get one to me in less than about a month which would not help me with the holiday season. I was very satisfied with the customer service (a big plus over my other printer (a very large one) and the product arrived packed well and in a timely fashion. I realize prices are going up everywhere, but if Printing Center is competitive for what you are looking for, definitely give them a try.

Poor customer service. I’ve ordered twice and was disappointed with both books. First book had print on the inside cover. The second book did not follow my instructions. The proofs appeared to be what I wanted but once the book arrived it did not look the same. A coupon for $25 off my next order was sent but I’ve already had two orders messed up so no thank you. No return call from manager Nicole after I left a message from her initial message.

I could not be more pleased with our interaction with your company. Our point of contact was Andrea who we found to be super helpful and knowledgeable. I felt then and do now that she genuinely cared to make my experience a good one and that she was willing to go to bat for us to get it done the way we wanted it. We have a goofy and unusual order so it was super refreshing to talk to a human being with compassion for our project instead of robots..or worse...robotic humans who check off boxes, rather than hearing voices. Andrea heard us and really helped us out in a pinch after another company had failed us at the last minute. We will order from you again and are showing your work around the radio station these days. So please, give Andrea a big raise and an even bigger hug from us goofball radio folks. Much love to you and thanks for everything!!!

The spiral bound books I ordered were terrific. I was disappointed in how the saddle stitch turned out, as the pages bowed outward and the book tended to flop open in the middle where the staples were. Mine was a sheet music book, and other saddle stitch books of similar length I have seen have not had this problem. The company had zero suggestions about why this might be or how to fix the problem.

my most recent project would have been PERFECT had the interior layout not been switched up a bit. However, the quality of the product is great. I'll submit this again for printing and make sure I leave specific notes for the tech to follow. Other than that, this company does a great job. Some of the reps can be a bit mean but that's no reflection of the company. Cant let one bad apple spoil a bunch.
