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.

The customer services was very very good, quality of paper and printing was good as well - my only grievance, which is important, is I thought the pages we’re overglued. This made it difficult to read/see the insides of the pages. Printing was well within the safe areas on the inner side, so I didn’t expect this issue. (This was on a perfect bound setup)

Normally my printing is easy, fast and clean. This time around there was a big mistake where the fold and staples were off centered, so images from other pages were "pulled" into the fold and onto left hand pages. I did contact a representative and received 20% gift card because it was confirmed this mistake was NOT on my end, but this sloppy work and minimal future discount really doesn't help me with angry customers and readers sending in criticisms to our poor quality. :(

The magazines turned out so well. The paper quality is great and there was no issues in the printing process. We sent in the wrong paper size for the magazine and we’re worried things would look weird after they had to resize it, but everything turned out amazing. The magazines looked so good that a second printing is being requested. I would highly suggest using this company for any of your printing needs. They communicate very quickly and have great customer service.

For two years we have used Printing Center USA for our school's literary journal, and we could not be happier. The finished product is beautiful, and the printing process was easy and quick. They have also been the most reasonably priced, which is important when you are working under a budget with no wiggle room. We will use them again next year!
