FAQs

How do I calculate my spine width?
What binding agent do you use for perfect binding?
For the same price as classic glue, we opt for PUR glue: it’s solid, flexible and durable. We offer only the best.

 

Do you respect the direction of the fibres?
Yes, for the covers as well as the interior. We always make sure that the direction of the fibres is parallel to the binding so that your book opens smoothly.

What technology do you use?
We only use high-definition digital printing. Our black print quality is equal to offset, without ever being too black.

Gloss or matte finish at one unique price. For other solutions (no-scratch), please contact us.

Simply send us your file in an .xls format and we’ll take care of the rest.

1 week, but can be cut down to 3 days, while taking into consideration time zone differences.
