Custom Hardcover Binding London

Whatever the occasion, custom hardcover binding offers a professional and elegant solution for your documents! The books are made by binding together paper with hot glue. The bound pages are then glued to the inside of the customised hard cover. 

We will print the front cover, spine and back cover of your hardcover book on a single sheet which we will wrap around a greyboard to create the hardback cover of your book. White endpapers will be glued to the inside of the front and back cover. 

We can produce custom hardback books in sizes  A5, A4 and A3 size.

A4 and A3 documents can be bound either on the short or on the long edge.

We need minimum 24 hours for printing and binding hardback books.

If you need urgent printing and hardcover binding, please contact us. Depending on our workload on the day, we may be able to offer faster hardcover binding.

Once hardcover books are printed and bound, you can collect them from our Central London printing centre.

We also offer a same day courier service to London postcodes or standard delivery service to the rest of the UK.

Please, note that an order is considered placed only after the payment has been received. You can arrange the payment in person, over the phone or online.

Please send us  your files in PDF format.

Cover

Your front cover, spine and back cover should be created in a single spread. Ideally the resolution should be 300 dpi. We need an extra large bleed for the cover as it needs to wrap around the hard cover. Please add 2-3cm bleed to your design keeping in mind that this part will wrap around the inside of the cover.

Inside Pages

All important information should be placed 1-2 cm off edge and minimum 2 cm off the binding edge. If your documents need to be printed full bleed, they should have a bleed of 3 mm. The file should be saved as individual pages in consecutive order (rather than spreads). 

We stock a wide range of paper and card.

Choose paper with thickness between 80-200 gsm for the inside pages of your document. We offer silk, matte and coated paper and card. The choice of paper thickness and finish will depend on the size of your document, the number of pages and the effect you want to achieve.

If you are not sure about the perfect paper for your document, you are welcome to come by and check our paper sample book.
