A softcover book is also known as paperbacks. It is light and easy to carry and ship out. In addition, it is a popular choice for printing pocketbooks, annual reports, fieldwork report, self-written novels and reprinting older books, etc.
A softcover book is usually printed on thick paper covers, pressing together with hot glue on the spine of the inner stack. This binding process is quite fast. As a matter of fact, we suggest using this technique when the project has an early deadline.
The cost of making hardcover books is fairly high. As a result, softcover books are a great option if you can’t release your book using large investments. Moreover, you don’t need to expect it to be a major production.
The finishing of the cover can also be made in the same way as a hardbound book. Uniquely adding a spot UV or hot foil stamping effect will be a very special custom-made addition. This can make your work stand out!
Below are examples of softcover book projects we have designed and finished. They include reports, menus, as well as magazines. These examples were made with different paper materials, for instance, stock (of both matte and glossy finish) and recycled paper.
