Hardcover Book Binding
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.

Printing and perfect binding
If you need printing and perfect binding, you can visit us at Kings Cross, Central London or email us your files and let us know:
- the size of your document and how many copies you need
- if you need colour or black and white printing for the inside pages
- if you need single- or double-sided printing
- you paper choice (matt, silk or coated paper, paper weight)
- if you want your document printed full bleed
We will come back to you with a quote.
***We can offer hardcover binding only for documents printed by us.
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.
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.
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.
Hard Cover Thesis Binding
Spiral / Coil Binding
Absolute life-saver! Amazing same day service and very nice and helpful staff. Had an A0 poster printed and ready to pick up within 4 hours. And it came sealed in a fitted plastic bag, so the rain didn’t damage it.
Would definitely recommend and use again in the future!
Thank you very much!
Very happy with my business card, I send them my design and they advised that my file seems a bit blurry, I am happy they checked because many other companies print without advising. I edited my file and it was printed in 2 hours so thank you for that.
Really efficient and conveniently placed! Staff is really friendly and helpful (i’m not a paper and binding professional and they gave me some great piece of advice regarding a portfolio I had to make in a very short period of time!) Will come back for sure
Very professional and accomodating, I had a last minute request and staff were so helpful. They saved my presentation day!!!
I printed and bound my portfolio in Nevex. I liked that they checked my document before printing and recommended few changes. The card which I chose was really good and I was happy with the printing too.
