Square Perfect Bound Books
Make your corporate brochure a powerful tool in your branding toolbox with our perfect bound square brochures. Create perfect bound books, booklets and brochures, all with a clean spine, no staples and no fuss!
Square perfect bound books printing options
Unlike saddle stitched or stapled books, with perfect binding the gathered pages of your brochure are bound to a wrap-around spine using a strong adhesive which, when dry, leaves them secure.
Square perfect bound brochures and books are printed on 130gsm silk paper as standard (for the pages) and with a heavier cover of 300gsm silk – however, we do offer a variety of paper weights and options (please see specifications tab). Our standard square brochures measure 210mm by 210mm (in landscape or portrait orientation), but we also offer A4, A5, A6 and DL brochures.
If you want to create a more eye-catching design, take a look at our finishing options. Create laminated perfect bound books (choose from Gloss, Matt or Soft touch lamination) or add embossing, debossing, spot UV or foiling (choose from 10 colours).
Create your own square perfect bound booklet printing design using our free, downloadable booklet templates or take advantage of our in house design services.

What is GSM?
GSM (grams per square metre) refers to the ‘weight’ or density of the paper stock. Lower GSM grades are more flexible, while higher grades are more sturdy and durable.
Better Printing can provide a wide range of paper stocks, from 90gsm (the same paper weight as typical office/household printer paper) to 450gsm (known as cardstock and commonly used for business cards).
