Book Printing & Bindery

FormStore is please to offer digital printing of personalized, variable data printing (VDP), books. 

The average cost is lower for very small print runs and Print On Demand (POD) has other business benefits besides lower costs (i.e. - small runs):

  • Technical set-up is usually quicker than for offset printing
  • Large inventories of a book or print material do not need to be kept in stock, reducing storage, handling costs, and inventory accounting costs
  • There is little or no waste from unsold products

These advantages reduce the risks associated with publishing books and prints and can lead to increased choice for consumers.

FormStore offers Perfect Binding and Saddle Stitching options for book binding.

Perfect binding gives a result similar to paperback books. Magazines and textbooks are a couple of examples of this type. They consist of various sections with a cover made from heavier paper, glued together at the spine with a strong flexible adhesive. The sections are rough-cut in the back to make them absorb the hot glue. The other three sides are then face trimmed. This is what allows the magazine or paperback book to be opened.

Saddle-stitching joins a set of nested pages into a single magazine or brochure by stapling through the centerfold.
